Analog Devices (ADI), a provider of high-performance semiconductors for applications in signal processing, is demonstrating its signal processing technologies at the MILCOM 2011 conference.
ADI is demonstrating its latest products in RF ICs, high-speed data converters, MEMS gyroscopes and MEMS inertial measurement units. The international conference for military communications, MILCOM 2011, is being held at the Baltimore Convention Center, MD. from November 7-10, 2011.
The company intends to showcase its innovations in MEMS inertial sensors, RF and wideband receivers in avionic and defense applications. ADI’s ICs meet the stringent reliability specifications and environmental requirements for commercial avionics, defense and the space markets.
ADI’s wideband receiver system demonstrates a 340 MHz wideband circuit performance bandwidth having a 74 dB @ 120 MHz SNR performance. The company’s demonstration of its RF Digital-to-Analog Converters illustrated direct RF synthesis at 2.5 GSPS. This demonstration took place with a single device, which showed reductions in system size, power and weight. It reduced the system complexity and increased the flexibility.
ADI’s demonstration of its high performance RF ICs included wideband passive RF Mixers having tunable Balun and IF Filter. It also included an Ultra Wideband PLL having an integrated high performance VCO. The demonstration highlighted the company’s 18 GHz Integer-N PLL synthesizer, which was announced recently.
ADI showcased MEMS tactical grade inertial sensors. It featured iSensor MEMS gyroscopes and iSensor MEMS inertial measurement units with 10 degrees-of-freedom. The gyroscopes compete with the performances of fiber optic gyros. For navigational and platform stabilization applications, these sensors provide a high, stable performance.
