Analog Devices Delivers Industry’s Highest Signal Bandwidth Dual 16-bit 2.8-GSPS D/A Converter

October 15, 2014 -- Analog Devices, Inc. introduced today industry's first 2.8-GSPS dual 16-bit converter for telecommunications system manufacturers that require microwave frequencies in point-to-point wireless backhaul equipment. The 16-bit AD9136 and 11-bit AD9135 dual D/A converters achieve up to 70 percent higher signal bandwidth than competing devices while enabling designers to support emerging E-band (71-76 GHz and 81-86 GHz) frequencies being adopted by wireless carriers to support steadily increasing demand for high-speed mobile voice and data transfers. The new converters have a maximum sample rate of 2.8 GSPS, which enables multicarrier generation up to the Nyquist frequency. ... read more

Impedance Measurements Stabilize Op-Amp Buffers

October 10, 2014 -- The unity-gain op amp (operational amplifier) buffer circuit is routinely used to transform high-impedance inputs into low-impedance outputs. ADC (analog-to-digital converter) voltage references are also frequently buffered to reduce the voltage reference noise resulting from the ADC sampling current. ... read more

Analysis of the Pixel Resolution in Image Sensors for Digital Still Cameras

September 17, 2014 -- Recently there has been no obvious increase in the pixel numbers in the interchangeable lens DSC markets. This could be that the pixel resolution has already reached its optimum quality for practical use or customers have understood the disadvantage of high resolution. The optical specification of a DSC decides the total sensing area of an image sensor; in a case of the same image size, if the pixel number becomes larger, each pixel size becomes smaller. The performance of imaging systems must continuously improve as the FHD standard evolves to a UHD standard and new requirements for image sensor performance, coupled with pixel resolution, evolve. ... read more
