Industry's Fastest 12V CMOS Amplifiers Drive High-Performance 16-Bit Data Converters
Product News  
10/31/2003   Post a comment
A family of low noise, high-speed 12V CMOS operational amplifiers are ideal for driving 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), as well as active filter, transimpedance amplifier, optical networking and portable audio applications. They combine AC characteristics of 20MHz bandwidth, 30V/us slew rate, 6nV/rtHz noise and 0.0003% harmonic distortion.

Pericom announces asynchronous mode support for PCI-to-PCI bridges
News & Analysis  
10/29/2003   Post a comment
Asynchronous mode allows users to run the secondary bus at a frequency that is not derived from the primary bus, thus providing far greater support for next generation PCI bus designs. Asynchronous mode support is significant as customers engineer newer faster designs that need to merge with slower legacy devices, Pericom says.

10/22/2003   Post a comment
Contributors to EE Times' October 13th InFocus section on "Backplane power management" described several different methods of buffering the power supplies on a circuit card from surges on a card cage backplane. We were particularly struck with Summit Microelectronics's overview of the processes used to monitor and control on-board voltages and current rushes. Their overview, digested for the InFocus section, stressed the issue of maintaining fail-safe operation. The article actually offered appl
Safety concerns for practical EMI line filters

10/21/2003   Post a comment
When we design EMI filters, we will find that safety issues, thermal issues, and even loop stability concerns are intricately linked with the central issue of EMI, writes National's Sanjaya Maniktala in the third chapter of this book-length series. Hypothetically speaking, we can put up for sale almost product that doesn't perform properly, however product safety is a legal requirement, without which we cannot sell. In off-line applications and high-voltage DC-DC converters, where the voltages a
Lost Link Bandwidth " How to get it Back

Link bandwidth can be a slippery animal, writes TriCN's John Ellis, in this article adopted from the recent Comms Design Conferent. Without careful thought on the front end of the design, he says, attenuation, reflections and system noise can quickly turn a planned 10 Gbits/s link into mush. A thoughtful approach to the entire signal path " chips to leadframes, leadframes to boards, boards to connectors, connectors to backplanes, and back again " and inclusion of well-chosen equalization techniq

News & Analysis  
10/15/2003   Post a comment
Hot-swap controller chips are coming to market in greater numbers and packed with more smarts. They've quickly evolved from discrete circuits into highly integrated chips, equipped with thermal sensing, that are proactive in maintaining power and board stability during transient events, as when a card is inserted into a live backplane. Concurrent with EE Times' InFocus report on backplane power management, Vince Biancomano has this survey on new controllers.

10/15/2003   Post a comment
Temperature ratings are illusive, reminds Bill Klein in the latest installment of his popular "Call I Took Last Week" last week series. You need to pay attention, not just to "mins" and "maxes," but also to ambient temperatures, junction temperatures and even storage conditions, Bill says. He certainly knows how to get your attention: You don't want your system crapping out prematurely, do you?
