Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors brand (VFR) has enhanced its VFCP series of Bulk Metal® Z-Foil ultra-high-precision flip chip resistors with an extended resistance range down to 5 Ω. The devices feature ultra-low TCR of ±0.05 ppm/°C nominal (0°C to +60°C) and ±0.2 ppm/°C typical (-55°C to +125°C, +25°C ref.) and load-life stability of ±0.005% at 70°C for 2,000 hours at rated power and ±0.01% at 70°C for 10,000 hours.
Rockwell Collins has been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a direct conversion digital receiver based on photonic technology. The three-year contract for the DISARMER program is valued up to $8.5 million.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT3797, a triple output DC/DC controller designed to drive three independent channels of LEDs. Its fixed frequency, current-mode architecture delivers constant, accurately regulated LED current over a wide range of supply and output voltages.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) from Analog Devices Inc. (ADI).
Sand 9 launches first piezoelectric MEMS timing product for communications infrastructure, industrial, military apps
Sand 9 Inc. became the first micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) company to achieve the stringent low-noise, high-stability and harsh environmental requirements for precision timing in communications infrastructure, industrial and military applications. As the first product based on Sand 9’s patented Temperature Compensated MEMS Oscillator (TCMO™) platform – which features the industry’s highest-performance MEMS architecture – the TM651 offers system designers a better alternative to existing quartz and MEMS-based timing solutions.
Teledyne LeCroy introduces the HDO4000-MS and HDO6000-MS high definition oscilloscopes which combine 16 channels of flexible mixed signal capabilities with HD4096 high definition technology, long memory, and a compact form factor, in bandwidths from 200 MHz to 1 GHz. All HDO models sport a large 12.1” touch-screen display and intuitive interface to enhance operation. Powerful debug tools, plus a full complement of automatic measurements, and waveform math capabilities turn the HDO-MS oscilloscope into an all-in-one analog, digital, serial debug machine.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, announced that HTC and Samsung are ramping SkyOne™, a highly customizable, fully optimized front-end solution, in several of their recent smartphone launches. The SkyOne™ platform, which integrates all RF and analog content between the transceiver and antenna, reduces complexity, size and time-to-market for customers with demanding architectures for advanced mobile applications.
ADI sets new standard in mixed-signal control processors revolutionizing industrial motor and solar inverter designs
Analog Devices Inc., a global leader in high-performance signal processing technology, launched a mixed-signal control processor that integrates the industry’s only embedded dual 16-bit A/D converter with up to 14 bits of accuracy together with a 240-MHz floating-point ARM® Cortex™-M4 processor core. Equipment manufacturers require highly accurate, closed-loop control in servo, motor-drive, solar photo-voltaic (PV) inverter and other embedded industrial applications to improve the energy efficiency and performance of their products.
Xilinx Inc. and Analog Devices Inc. announced that they have achieved JESD204B interoperability between Xilinx JESD204 LogiCORE™ IP in the Kintex®-7 FPGA and the ADI AD9250 analog-to-digital high-speed data converter.
