As the mobile network struggles to cope with the growing level of traffic and pressures on CAPEX, the RF electronics of a typical base station design are subject to great innovation namely in the form of tower mounted amplifiers, remote radio heads, and active antennas.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a second series of quad 16- and 12-bit 3 V/5 V D/A converters in space-saving 16-lead LFCSP and TSSOP packages. These new AD5686/96 nanoDAC+™ quad D/A converters offer the industry’s best DC performance (INL is ±2LSB max, offset error is ±1.5mV max and gain error is ±0.1% max) in the smallest package (3 x 3 mm LFCSP), with SPI or I²C interface options.
Analog Devices, Inc. introduced the ADuCM360, a fully integrated, 4-kSPS, 24-bit data acquisition system-on-a-chip incorporating dual, high-performance, multi-channel sigma-delta A/D converters, a 32-bit ARM CortexTMM3MCU, and flash/EE memory.
Analog Devices invites you to visit its booth at the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) to explore ADI's high performance RF ICs and world-leading data converters, covering bits to antenna and back.
TriQuint Semiconductor Inc., a RF solutions supplier and technology innovator, announced that its Foundry Services division is supporting start-up Sarda Technologies to bring a new line of high-efficiency DC-DC converter switches to the global marketplace.
Hittite has launched two exciting new SMT packaged clock generators, the HMC1032LP6GE and the HMC1034LP6GE. Ideal for a wide range of high performance cellular/4G infrastructure, fiber optic and networking applications, these devices deliver best-in-class jitter and industry-leading phase noise floor.
Crystek Corp. has launched the CCHD-957, a new ultra-low phase noise HCMOS clock oscillator with standby mode, featuring an extremely low close-in phase noise of -100 dBc/Hz @ 10 Hz offset and a typical noise floor of -170 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset.
