ADI's precision battery monitor family prolongs automotive battery life
Analog Devices has announced its ADuC703x family of highly integrated, precision battery monitors. With the increasing volume of electronic content in today’s cars, coupled with the fact that 60 percent of all automotive electronics failures can be attributed to faulty or discharged batteries (according to The Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club), there is a growing need to continuously monitor battery capacity and intelligently manage power ...
Clock IC provides all critical timing functions on one chip
Analog Devices is introducing what it says is the the industry’s first clock IC to combine low phase noise clock generation with 14-channel clock distribution at jitter levels below 1 picosecond. The AD9516 series integrates an integer-N synthesizer, two reference inputs, a voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO), programmable dividers, adjustable delay lines and 14 clock drivers, including LVPECL, LVDS and CMOS.
Hall-effect sensor ICs for battery-powered applications
The new A1391 and A1392 linear Hall-effect sensor ICs from Allegro MicroSystems Europe are micropower devices that feature a power consumption of only 10 mW in active mode. Despite the low power consumption, the features required to produce a highly accurate linear Hall effect IC have not been compromised.
ST's 3-Axis Accelerometers feature small form factor and low power consumption
STMicroelectronics has introduced the first two devices in its new family of low-g linear accelerometers, distinguished by small form factor and low power consumption. The feature-rich LIS302 sensors meet the growing demand for smart functionality, such as hard-disk drive protection and motion-controlled operation, in today ’s mobile phones, digital audio players, and laptops.
Quad-channel Parametric Measurement Unit
Analog Devices is introducing the industry’s first quad-channel PMU (parametric measurement unit). The AD5522 combines four independent channels in a space-saving 12 mm × 12 mm TQFP package. Each of the four channels includes on-chip sense resistors for 5 microamp, 20 microamp, 200 microamp and 2 milliamp current ranges.
ADC is designed to increase the portability of patient and industrial monitors
Analog Devices' latest precision PulSAR ADC is designed to increase the portability of patient and industrial monitors and improve the performance and throughput of automated test equipment and data acquisition systems, Analog Devices' AD7980 1-MSPS (mega-sample per second) 16-bit ADC consumes 80 percent less power and board space than the closest competing 16-bit ADC in its class.
14-bit high-speed octal ADC will save space and power in portable medical products
Analog Devices' latest family of octal ADCs are ideal for portable medical devices and ultrasound machines where lower power consumption and smaller board space are critical design considerations. The 10-bit AD9212 and 12-bit AD9222 consume less than 100 mW per channel, yielding savings of as much as 5 to 6W when compared to competitive offerings in ultrasound systems containing up to 512 channels.
Micropower real-time clocks provide increased security and tamper detection
The event detect and time stamp features in two ultra small, micropower real-time clock/calendar devices from Intersil operate in both normal and battery mode. With their enhanced security functionality, the RTCs are uniquely suited for a variety of applications ranging from security, warranty monitoring, data collection and recording.
Rail to Rail Comparators Support all Prevailing Digital Output Stages including LVDS
Analog Devices’ ADCMP60x family of rail-to-rail comparators is designed for applications that require high-speed, low power, rail-to-rail swing and high precision. The comparator family supports all prevailing digital output stages—including LVDS (low-voltage differential signaling), CML (current-mode logic) and TTL/CMOS required by applications such as medical instruments, test and measurement, RF (radio frequency) and telecommunicat...
Analogue to Digital Converter suits Wireless Infrastructure Applications
Analog Devices is expanding its portfolio of devices targeted at wireless infrastructure applications with the AD9254 14-bit, 150 MSPS ADC. The device achieves 83-dBc SFDR at 70 MHz while consuming only 430 mW—a claimed 50 percent reduction in power consumption over competing solutions.
