Analog Devices introduced the ADSP-CM40x mixed-signal control processors. The ADSP-CM40x integrates the industry’s only embedded dual 16-bit A/D converter with up to 14 bits of accuracy together with a 240-MHz floating-point ARM Cortex-M4 processor core. The new ADI ADSP-CM40x devices enable engineers to plug their designs directly into an environment for model-based design using MATLAB and Simulink software. This streamlines the workflow from system modeling to controller deployment to verification and certification.
Analog Devices announced their ADV7619 3-GHz HDMI receiver. The ADV7619 is a highly-integrated, single-chip, dual-port 3-GHz receiver solution. The ADI chip supports High-Definition Multimedia Interface specification version 1.4a, 3D display resolutions and extended colorimetry. The ADI ADV7619 is sampling now, with full availability in June 2011. The 14 mm x 14 mm (TQFP_EP) IC is priced at $7.09 (in 1,000 quantities). The ADV7619 is ideal for next-generation home entertainment AV (audio/video) systems.
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced their ADG4612 and ADG4613 power-off protection switches. Standard switches can be either open or closed when no power supply is present. The ADG4612 and ADG4613 guarantee an off-state in the absence of a power supply. This prevents potentially damaging current from flowing to circuit boards. The ADI DG4612 and ADG4613 switches also feature overvoltage protection, which can block signal levels up to 16 V in the off state. The switches are ideal for applications where analog signals may be present at the switch inputs before the power supply voltage is on, or where the user has no control over the power supply sequence. They are priced at $1.87 (each per 1,000).
Analog Devices announced the ADG5412 and ADG5413 switches that can prevent latch-up in high-voltage industrial applications operating up to ±20 V. The ADG5412 and ADG5413 are ideal for instrumentation, automotive, and other harsh environments that are prone to latch-up, which is an undesirable high-current state that can lead to device failure and persist until the power supply is turned off. The high voltage switches feature a 8-kV HBM (human body model) ESD (electrostatic discharge) rating. This helps shield equipment from excess current and eliminates the need for designers to install additional protection circuitry. The ADG5412 and ADG5413 switches are available now for $2.18 (price each per 1,000).
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced the AD9553 clock generator and ADCLK944 high-speed clock fanout buffer. The new clock products improve performance and reduce programming and design complexity in synchronous optical networks and wireless base stations. The AD9553 (5 mm x 5 mm, 32-lead LFCSP) and ADCLK944 (3 mm x3 mm, 16-lead LFCSP) are sampling now for $5.10 and $6.00, respectively.
Analog Devices announced the ADXRS450 iMEMS gyroscope with digital output for angular rate (rotational) sensing in harsh environments. The device features a differential quad-sensor design that enables it to operate accurately under intense shock and vibration conditions. The ADXRS450 iMEMS gyroscope is sampling now with volume production scheduled for December 2010. The ADXRS450 comes in a small 16-lead plastic SOIC package and an SMT-compatible ceramic vertical-mount package. The ADXRS450 is priced at $43.16 per unit (SOIC) and $57.07 per unit (SMT) in 1,000-unit quantities.
Analog Devices (ADI) announced the AD9148 high-speed quad DAC (digital-to-analog converter). The AD9148 is a 16-bit, high dynamic range DAC with a sample rate of 1000 MSPS. The AD9148 device is optimized for direct conversion transmit applications, including gain, phase, and offset compensation. The DAC outputs are optimized to interface seamlessly with analog quadrature modulators. Prices start at $58.60 each (in lots of 1,000).
Analog Devices rolled out the SHARC 2148x and SHARC 2147x series of 32-bit floating point digital signal processors. SHARC 2148x series processors are available in a range of package options including 176-ld and 100-ld LQFP packages, with pricing starting at $8.20. SHARC 2147x series processors are available in package options including 12x12mm BGA and a 14x14mm LQFP, with pricing starting at $7.85. Processors are sampling today.
Analog Devices announced the ADuC7023 and ADuC7122 precision analog microcontrollers. The ADuC7023 and ADuC7122 microcontrollers feature on-chip memory, data converters, and other analog peripherals. The new microcontrollers use an ARM7 processor with up to 126 KB of flash memory to ensure the accurate control of optical drivers and diagnostics. The ADuC7023 and ADuC7122 MCUs are ideal for digital diagnostics in optical transceivers and modules based on both fixed and tunable frequency lasers.
Analog Devices (ADI) introduced the Blackfin BF50x series of processors for converged digital signal and control processing applications. BF50x processors enable designers to achieve gains in signal conversion and computational precision, and apply advanced power control techniques to yield greater energy efficiency for industrial applications. Blackfin BF50x processors are sampling to today.
