The dual VGA variable gain amplifier is unique with its features like 1 db attenuation steps over 31 db using a 5 bit control input with a 0.25 db gain flateness over 100 Mhz BW. This chip also has a four step rapid gain control which is programmable by the designer using SPI interface plus a 2 bit digital input. The BW 50 to 1000 Mhz at a noise figure of 5.6 db with 2 independant VGA's makes it very attractive and compact for various RF applications. This chip has a power save feature where the supply can be reduced to 3.3 volts and usefull feature for mobile applications. over all this is a great design by Maxim designers in the field of wide band RF amplifiers. Soon we may expect these devices available at a lower noise figure from Maxim semiconductors.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
