10. 250 MSPS 16-bit ADC claims new level of signal processing performance
This story saw Analog Devices, Inc., claiming the industry's fastest 16-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with the unveiling of a 250 MSPS ADC that aims to provide a new level of signal processing performance for communications, test and measurement and defense electronics applications. The AD9467 features a high spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of up to 100 dBFs (90 dBFs up to 300 MHz) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) performance of 76.4 dBFS.
The new converter is targeting applications such as radar systems, spectrum analyzers and multi-carrier, multi-mode receiver designs for wireless infrastructure equipment that are defined by high resolution and throughput.
9. RS unveils online Arduino resource centre
RS Components unveiled a comprehensive Arduino Resource Centre which follows on from the Arduino DevCamp hosted through, DesignSpark, the new online design gateway to resources and review. RS offers the Arduino Duemilanove board, support modules, components and resources across Europe, Asia and Africa.
