RF switch connector has its own built-in test point Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment Murata Electronics North America's TWD switch connector, the MM6430-2600, is a dual-function device that serves as the primary RF connection in car kits and other mobile applications. Its secondary function is as a manufacturing test point.
The action in high voltage Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment Power MOSFETs rated to 800 volts are beginning to arrive in quantity, as much due to a favorable economic outlook at wafer fab facilities as to expanding applications in switching supplies and industrial systems.
Chip brings broadband to the masses Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment Broadcom Corp. has launched the first in a family of products said to enable low-cost, scalable, broadband voice, data and video access within apartment buildings, hotels and smaller office buildings-or multidwelling and multitenant units (MDUs and MTUs), as the telecom industry calls them.
A/D converters packaged in a space-saving SOT23 Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment Analog Devices Inc. is offering 8-, 10- and 12-bit, pin-compatible, successive-approximation architecture analog-to-digital converters in six-lead SOT23 packages that occupy about one-fourth the space of eight-lead SOIC packages.
TI's LDO voltage regulators serve DSPs Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment Four new families of low-dropout (LDO) voltage regulators from Texas Instruments Inc. are designed to work with the company's TMS320C5000 and TMS320-C6000 digital signal processor chips.
Standalone CPU board reduces footprint Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment The SBC0486 board computer from Micro/sys Inc. provides "truly single-board solutions in a 5 x 5-inch footprint" for building compact PC/AT-compatible control systems, said company president Ken Finster.
AMP transceivers work up to 156 Mbits/s Product News 7/3/2000 Post a comment Tyco Electronics Corp.'s Fiber Optics Division has begun taking volume orders for its next-generation AMP OC-3 and Fast Ethernet multimode MT-RJ transceivers, which operate at 156 and 125 Mbits/second, respectively.
MOSFETs do battle in the trenches News & Analysis 7/3/2000 Post a comment There's a ton of road maps and technology initiatives for next-generation discrete power MOSFETs in desktop, portable and automotive applications, but at their core, most of them leave manufacturers with just two ways to go.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
