Modified LDO regulator sinks PECL-termination current Design How-To 6/28/2005 Post a comment For high-speed clock and data systems, positive emitter-coupled-logic (PECL) - a differential signaling scheme - is emerging as a preferred alternative to single-ended CMOS and TTL logic. High-speed ECL offers differential I/O, with excellent skew and jitter control, along with fast rise and fall times. From the June issue of Planet Analog magazine, a Maxim engineer shows how to extract high current.
Single-chip, triple differential receiver reduces board space by more than half Product News 6/28/2005 Post a comment Analog Devices Inc.' AD8143 is a compact, single-chip solution that receives differential signals over a twisted pair cable. The triple differential receiver is primarily designed to receive RGB (red, green, blue) signals with resolutions up to 1600 X 1200; however, it can able be used to receive any other type of differential analog signal or high-speed data transmission.
Enhanced host bridge supports dual-processor systems Product News 6/24/2005 Post a comment Tundra Semiconductor is concentrating its efforts on producing host bridges that support PowerPC processor-based designs. The company just released a derivative of its Tsi108 system controller that supports dual processors and offers better power management capabilities than its counterpart.
