Mixed Signal & Analogue

While digital electronics tends to get more than its fair share of coverage, analogue electronics remains the technology that makes things happen. It’s the interface between the real world and the 1s and 0s of the digital domain.

The range of technologies falling into the analogue domain is wide; everything from data conversion to amplification to switches. Like electronics in general, analogue products are getting more complex as device developers look to integrate more functionality. Recognising this, manufacturers have started to develop more capable design tools to support engineers.

Because analogue design is so important, New Electronics covers all aspects of the technology regularly.

Analogue delay lines boost video transmission range

Four triple analogue delay lines for video signals provide clear video images in applications where video is carried over long distances of twisted pair cable. The ISL59920, ISL59921, ISL59922, and ISL59923 are provide skew compensation between three high speed signals and are suitable for compensating for the skew introduced by a typical CAT-5, CAT-6 or CAT-7 cable.

Switch supports optimal signal routing

An octal switch from Intersil is targeted at smartphone applications. The ISL54230's size and flexible design enables the different types of signals in dual mode, dual standby operation phones to be routed optimally.

16bit quad SPI converter

Linear Technology's LTC2754-16 is a quad 16bit current output digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) that it says achieves ±1LSB integral nonlinearity and differential nonlinearity.
