Analog Devices Press Release - November 7, 2011
Analog Devices High Performance Signal Processing Featured
-- ADI to demonstrate next generation data converters, RF ICs, tactical grade MEMS Gyro and
at MILCOM 2011
Measurement Units and a high-performance wideband receiver system.
WIRE)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing
applications, will be demonstrating its high performance signal processing technologies at MILCOM 2011, the
premier international conference for military communications to be held November 7-10, 2011 in the Baltimore
Convention Center, Baltimore, MD. In Booth 1304, ADI will demonstrate their most recent innovations in high-speed
data converters, RF ICs (integrated circuits), high performance MEMS gyroscopes and high performance MEMS inertial
The company will have a range of demonstrations representing industry-leading
innovations in the areas of wideband receivers, RF and MEMS inertial sensors that drive emerging defense and
The high-performance wideband receiver system demonstration
highlights wideband circuit performance bandwidth of 340MHz with an SNR performance of 74dB @ 120MHz
RF Digital-to-Analog Converters
The RF DAC demonstration illustrates direct RF synthesis at 2.5 GSPS
with a single device, enabling system size, weight and power reductions while increasing flexibility and reducing
MEMS inertial sensors
The MEMS tactical grade inertial sensor demonstrations feature an iSensor® 10 degree-of-freedom MEMS inertial
measurement unit and iSensor MEMS gyroscopes that rival the performance of fiber optic gyros. Both high
performance sensors provide the most stable performance available for platform stabilization and navigational
High Performance RF ICs:
The RF IC demonstration features a recently announced 18 GHz Integer-N PLL synthesizer, as well as wideband
passive RF Mixers with tunable Balun and IF Filter and an Ultra Wideband PLL with integrated high performance VCO.
These new high performance RF ICs offer greater integration and higher performance.
As a preferred
supplier to the Department of Defense and other US and foreign defense agencies, ADI provides high-performance ICs
that meet rigorous environmental and reliability specifications defense, commercial avionics and space markets all
require. ADI’s products sold in this market are specifically tested versions of products derived from our standard
product offerings. Customer products include: navigation systems, radar systems, space and satellite
communications and security devices.
