Texas Instruments Inc. introduced a pair of devices supporting the JEDEC JESD204B serial interface standard for data converters.
Hittite Microwave Corp., the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, is pleased to announce the release of the October 2012 Selection Guide which summarizes over 1050 products including 22 new products.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications and leading provider of RF ICs (radio frequency integrated circuits), announced the release of a PLL synthesizer that offers leading phase noise performance. An upgrade to the widely used 4-GHz ADF4153 fractional-N PLL, the new, pin- and software-compatible ADF4153A PLL synthesizer facilitates improved integrated phase noise in a variety of applications including communications infrastructure, pulse-Doppler and FMCW (frequency-modulated continuous-wave) radar applications, test and instrumentation equipment, microwave point-to-point systems, PMR (professional mobile radio), VSATs (very small aperture terminals) and aerospace systems.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) is teaming up with Wasatch Photonics Inc. at electronica 2012 (November 13-16) to stage a “Name That Beer” demonstration using the Wasatch Photonics Stroker 785L Raman Spectrometer. Incorporating ADI’s A/D converter technology, the compact Raman laser spectrometer will distinguish from among 10 brands of German beer by reading the signature spectrum of each. The demonstration will be held at the Analog Devices booth (Hall A4 Stand 159).
Analog Devices Inc. introduced an FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) that incorporates JEDEC JESD204B SerDes (serializer/de-serializer) technology to allow digital and analog designers to simplify high-speed data converter-to-FPGA connectivity.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the groundbreaking InfiniiVision 4000 X-Series digital-storage and mixed-signal oscilloscopes. This new series establishes unprecedented levels of flexibility and ease of use among units that use an embedded operating system.
Aeroflex Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., now offers its 5800 Series multi-functional test system with a Virginia Panel interface, an industry-standard interface used by test fixture manufacturers around the world.
Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high performance analog semiconductors enabling a broad range of end markets, introduced a family of highly efficient front-end solutions for smart water and gas metering applications. Skyworks’ front-end solutions enable significant size and cost reduction. In addition, many of Skyworks’ front-end solutions allow for plug-and-play functionality, drastically reducing the design time for new products. To date, Skyworks’ solutions are being utilized by 40 tier-one utility and smart energy providers throughout Europe.
Anritsu Co. introduces the MG3740A analog signal generator that outputs AM/FM/ΦM test signals for evaluation of narrowband analog radio equipment used in public safety networks and private commercial networks.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced the AD5689R D/A converter. This 16-bit dual nanoDAC+ continues the series of ADIs nanoDAC® products offering high performance in smaller packages. With relative accuracy of ±2-LSB INL, 2-ppm/°C 2.5-V reference, and space saving packages, this combination allows analog designers to address a wider range of applications without having to trade off performance for footprint.
