Quad DC/DC Regulator with Configurable 4A Output Array Powers FPGAs, ASICs & Microprocessors

The LTM4644 is a quad DC/DC step-down µModule regulator with 4A per output. Outputs can be paralleled in an array for up to 16A capability. Included in the package are the switching controllers, power FETs, inductors and support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 4V to 14V with an external bias supply, the LTM4644 supports an output voltage range of 0.6V to 5.5V each set by a single external resistor. Its high efficiency design delivers 4A continuous (5A peak) output current per channel. This device is ideal for applications in military, communications, data storage, industrial, transportation and medical systems. In conjunction with Arrow Electronics Ltd.

ANSYS Simulation for Defence/Military/Aerospace

The aerospace and defense (A&D) industry focuses on building lighter, more efficient, safer and more survivable systems, from aircraft to armoured vehicles to electronic equipment. Once reliant on physical testing for development, the industry pioneered computational methods to gain insight and trouble-shoot problems that arose during physical testing. A growing area is the effects of Electronic Power and Thermal Management: A Critical Engineering Challenge for Next-Generation Unmanned Systems.

Point of Load Regulator Designed For Defence Applications.

Point of Load regulators are normally designed for convection or forced air cooling & require considerable derating when used at higher temperatures. - Less than ideal for use in defence equipment. The Roband RO-MIL-2200 was designed specifically for defence applications, being suitable for conduction cooling & operating over a -55°C to +125°C range without any derating. It is also designed & manufactured in the UK, avoiding any ITAR restrictions.

ASIC to FPGA/CPLD Adapters offer Big Cost Savings

If the 90's were the age of the ASIC then today is the age of the FPGA. ASIC designs re-created in today's FPGA technology is not a flight of fancy but a real concept. Winslow Adaptics ASIC to FPGA adapters will provide that triple F solution.....let us bridge the gap!

WLAN 802.11ac Signal Generation and Analysis

Aeroflex adds 802.11ac capability to its S-Series RF signal generator and analyzer product line. First introduced in 2010, the S-Series offers top-of¬-the-range performance at a mid-range price. Designed for use by engineers in wireless local area network (WLAN) research, design, and manufacturing, the new 802.11ac capability is available for the SGD RF digital signal generators and the SVA vector signal analyzer.
