Embedded World: Analog Devices showcases signal processing solutions

Analog Devices will showcase innovative signal processing solutions for embedded applications designed for industrial, automotive, healthcare and other markets at Embedded World 2012.

The demonstrations at the ADI booth will include: Interfacing FPGAs to Analog Devices: Using Avnet Xilinx Spartan®-6 FPGA LX9 MicroBoard and Digilent Pmods™, and the Arrow Altera Cyclone IV BeMicro SDK, ADI will showcase several designs that feature a variety of MEMS sensors and data conversion devices connected to and controlled by these FPGA development systems. Interface & Isolation: An industrial communications demonstration will illustrate the touch screen control of a robotic arm over an isolated CAN (Controller Area Network) communication bus. The robot arm controller board contains the ADM3053 signal and power isolated CAN transceiver and is used with the ADuC7128 microcontroller to receive CAN messages from the Blackfin BF548-EZ-Kit. Microcontroller/RF: The ADF7023 RF transceiver with MAC and packet handler and the fully integrated ADuCRF101 with RF transceiver and integrated Cortex M3 Micro will represent the highly integrated ISM band transceiver ICs in order to provide a more complete system solution. Process Control: The AD5755 Quad-Channel, 4 to 20 mA 16-Bit DAC, reduces power loss and self-heating with its innovative dynamic power control architecture, enabling increased channel count per system. Additionally, its small package reduces space requirements, and the AD5755-1 version enables simple coupling of HART signals. Design Resources and Support: Available at the kiosk will be featured Circuits from the Lab(TM) reference circuits, which are multi-purpose application circuits that have been built and tested by ADI's experienced engineers. Schematics, gerbers, and other design files make these circuits easy to integrate, while evaluation hardware aids in quick testing and prototype. In addition, the European Customer Interaction Centre staff members will be available on site at the ADI booth to provide live technical support.
