GaAs up/down converters offer side-band choice

ADMV1011

ADMV10x RF up/down converters are GaAs MMICs from Analog Devices, aimed at a variety of audio and video data transmission applications: satellite communications, radar, electronic warfare systems, and point-to-point radios are singled out by distributor Mouser, which is stocking all the ADMV10x parts. ADMV1009 is a single side-band (SSB) I/Q up-converter optimised for point-to-point microwave radio designs operating in the 12.7 ...

Nano-C raises $11.5m

Nano-C has closed an $11.5 million funding round of which Ray Stata, the co-founder and chairman of Analog Devices, invested $3 million. Nano-C is the company providing the new materials (carbon nanotubes and fullerenes) to Nantero for NRAM memory, Merck for Solar, Irresistible Materials for EUV photo-Resist, and a major display company to be announced. Some of  Nano-C’s customers are: ...

Two-channel power system monitors current, power and energy

LTC2972  is a 2-channel power system manager, featuring current, power and energy monitoring around an intermediate bus and point-of-load (POL) converter. Monitoring circuit board power and energy use is a prerequisite for managing, optimizing and reducing their consumption in order to lower server rack and data center cooling and utility costs. The LTC2972 relieves the host of burdensome polling and ...

ADI creates internal silicon PCB for system-in-package ADCs

ADI-ADAQ400x

To increase system-in-package integration density, Analog Devices is stacking die on a passives-on-silicon substrate using technology developed at its Limerick design centre. Dubbed iPassive, “this is a new thing in system-in-package”, ADI field application engineer Thomas Tzscheetzsch told Electronics Weekly at Embedded World in Nuremberg. “The passives are in the silicon, not in poly, real silicon. They are matched to ...

LTC7815 DC/DC controller maintains output voltages during battery droop

The  LTC7815 Power-By-Linear IC is a  high frequency (up to 2.25MHz) triple output (buck, buck, boost), synchronous DC/DC controller that maintains all output voltages in regulation during automotive cold crank conditions. A 12V automotive battery can droop to less than 4 volts during engine restart or cold crank, causing reset of infotainment systems and other electronics that operate from 5 ...

EW: ADI aims to slash power consumption of IoT sensors

Analog Devices has unveiled a low power microcontroller. Designed for IoT sensor nodes, the power savings come from a “sensorstrobe” technique which allows it to remain in a low power state while data collection is taking place. As a result the MCU achieves a 40μA/MHz active-mode consumption, which drops to 680nA in hibernate mode. The on-chip SRAM and flash memory ...

ADI buys solid-state laser steering technology

Analog Devices has acquired ‘liquid crystal waveguide’ solid-state laser steering technology from Vescent Photonics. “Vescent’s innovative non-mechanical beam steering technology enables more robust integrated lidar systems that overcome many of the major drawbacks associated with today’s mechanical offerings,” said ADI, which intends to apply scanning lidar to self-driving cars. While ADI is not yet saying much about the technology, Vescent ...

ADI Cortex-M3 is surprise entry in ULP benchmark list

ADuCM302x

Analog Devices has unveiled a surprise – a general-purpose ultra-low-power (ULP) ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller, and it beats all but one on EEMBC’s ULPBench benchmark. Called the ADuCM302x series and aimed at IoT end nodes (and made at TSMC), it consumes under 38uA/MHz in active mode and <750nA in stand-by. With this it scores 245 on ULPbench, beaten only by Ambiq ...
