Analog Devices, Inc. introduced new highly integrated RF ICs that greatly simplify the design and reduce the development cost of multi-band base stations and point-to-point (PtP) radios. These new devices include the ADRF6720 I/Q modulator, ADRF6820 I/Q demodulator and ADRF6612 dual-mixer. The highly integrated devices enable the design of base station and high-performance radios requiring multi-band support, high dynamic range and wide channel bandwidths. These products are ideal for designs for 3G/4G communication, microwave PtP radios, military/aerospace and instrumentation applications. ADI’s new RF ICs offer the same performance as radio designs based on a combination of discrete solutions, yet in a significantly smaller form factor. The new devices feature an embedded low phase noise synthesizer, RF switch and balun, digital step attenuator (DSA) and programmable linearity optimization.
Analog Devices Inc. announced two software-defined radio (SDR) platform solutions and ecosystems. This brings its portfolio to four platform solutions that simplify rapid SDR system prototyping and development in applications ranging from defense electronics, RF instrumentation, communications infrastructure and open-source SDR development projects.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced a revolutionary solution for software defined radio (SDR) applications. Designed to enable programmable radio applications that operate over a wide range of modulation schemes and network specifications such as defense electronics, instrumentation equipment and communications infrastructure, the new AD9361 RF Agile Transceiver achieves best-in-class performance, high integration, wideband operation and flexibility.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a wireless vibration sensing system that allows industrial systems operators to remotely monitor production equipment health, improve system performance, and reduce maintenance costs. The new networked system includes the ADIS16229 iSensor(R) wireless vibration sensor node, which combines dual-axis digital MEMs (micro-electro mechanical systems) acceleration sensing with advanced frequency-domain and time-domain signal processing.
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. (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) introduced an RF clock IC, (radio frequency clock integrated circuit) with the industry’s lowest jitter for communications and instrumentation equipment that requires high-speed data conversion and optimum SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) performance. The AD9525 RF clock IC achieves absolute broadband rms (root-mean square) jitter of 83-fs (1-kHz to 100-MHz offset range), at 245.76 MHz, including jitter contribution from the external VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator).
Analog Devices Inc. introduced a new family of microwave ICs, the ADF55xx series voltage controlled oscillators (VCOs), for point-to-point (PtP), instrumentation/ test equipment and satellite communication applications. Featuring the industry’s leading phase-noise performance, the new ADF55xx VCO series covers a frequency range from 3.5 GHz to 13.9 GHz, offers a wide frequency tuning range and can be optimized for power consumption, phase noise and power output.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance signal processing technology and the data converter market share leader*, introduced two RF (radio frequency) D/A converters that are able to synthesize the entire downstream (transmit) cable spectrum from a single RF port. Supporting data rates up to 2.8 GSPS, the single-channel, 14-bit AD9129 and 11-bit AD9119 RF D/A converters allow cable operators to reduce the total system power and component count of CATV (CMTS) infrastructure equipment, simplify system design, and lower total bill of material costs.
Analog Devices Inc. introduced the AD9250 dual-channel, 14-bit, 250 MSPS, A/D converter featuring the JEDEC JESD204B serial output data interface standard. The AD9250 A/D converter is the first-to-market with full JESD204B Subclass 1 deterministic latency at 250 MSPS. This functionality accommodates the precise synchronization of multiple data-conversion channels through a serial interface.
