Analog Devices Inc. unveiled the newest addition to its line of FPGA development platform-compatible FPGA mezzanine cards (FMC) incorporating JEDEC JESD204B SerDes (serializer/de-serializer) technology today. Digital and analog designers can use the AD9250-FMC-250EBZ kit to simplify and rapidly prototype high-speed JESD204B A/D converter-to-FPGA platforms.
International Manufacturing Services Inc. (IMS) introduces its line of HVI Series chip resistors especially suited for high voltage applications.
New bandwidths, mixed-signal analysis and options for testing USB interfaces, CAN LIN buses and audio signals: Rohde & Schwarz significantly expanded its oscilloscope portfolio in 2012. At the embedded world 2013 trade fair in Nuremberg (hall 4, booth 112), the company will present its latest applications, two new probes and other state-of-the-art products.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a world leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications and RF ICs, introduced a dual-channel differential amplifier for driving high speed 12- to 18-bit A/D converters. Featuring a 3dB bandwidth of 4.5 GHz, the ADL5566 differential amplifier is optimized for wideband, high IF (intermediate frequency), low distortion, and noise performance out to 500 MHz.
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) introduced the AD9106 quad-channel, 12-bit, and the AD9102 single-channel, 14-bit, 180 MSPS waveform generators, integrating on-chip static random access memory (SRAM) and direct digital synthesis (DDS) for complex waveform generation. ADI’s new D/A converters generate the high-speed, high-dynamic-range, multichannel complex waveforms required in applications such as ultrasound transducer excitation, medical instrumentation, portable instrumentation, signal generators and arbitrary waveform generators.
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.
Crane Aerospace & Electronics congratulates National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on the successful landing of Curiosity on the Gale Crater, Mars, with InterpointTM dc-dc converter and EMI filter modules on board. Curiosity’s goal is not to find Martian life, but rather to seek out carbon-based organic compounds that are the building blocks of life, and then to determine whether the Gale Crater landing site was ever suitable for creatures. The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on November 26, 2011 via an Atlas V rocket.
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.
