The 12 DACs/ADCs of Xmas - TI's acquisition of National Semiconductor leads to a year to remember for data converters December 21, 2011The 12 DACs/ADCs of Xmas - TI's acquisition of National Semiconductor leads to a year to remember for data converters We are only a few months after Texas Instruments absorbed National Semiconductor but the new business is already making it clear that it sees data converter technologies as being its gateway for growth in 2012 and beyond.  Paul Buckley EE Times Europe Analog's editor spotlights some of TI's and National Semiconductors' top data converter product developments this year.  Read more Single-wire 16-bit DAC for 4-to-20-mA loops simplifies smart transmitter design August 16, 2011Single-wire 16-bit DAC for 4-to-20-mA loops simplifies smart transmitter design National Semiconductor Corp. , has introduced a 16-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) featuring a single-wire interface and 4-to-20 mA current loop drive that simplifies the design of smart transmitters used in industrial two-wire sensor systems. The highly integrated DAC161P997 reduces component count and cost in factory and building automation control systems by enabling the use of a single isolation component to cross the isolation boundary. Read more DVGAs enable higher-performance basestation radio architectures August 11, 2011DVGAs enable higher-performance basestation radio architectures National Semiconductor Corp., has introduced a pair of quad- and dual-channel, digital variable gain amplifiers (DVGA) that enable higher-performance wideband radio systems. The LMH6522 quad and LMH6521 dual DVGAs provide superior linearity performance over a wide frequency range, making them an ideal solution for the most challenging multi-channel wideband wireless systems. Read more Direct RF-sampling ADCs aims to revolutionize radio architectures July 12, 2011Direct RF-sampling ADCs aims to revolutionize radio architectures National Semiconductor Corp., has introduced a family of analog-to-digital converters that the company claims are the industry’s first to directly sample RF signals beyond 2.7 GHz, with third-order intermodulation distortion (IMD3) up to -71 dBc and sampling at up to 3.6 GSPS. Read more National Semiconductor unveils industry's first high-voltage PMBus system power management and protection ICs June 29, 2011National Semiconductor unveils industry's first high-voltage PMBus system power management and protection ICs National Semiconductor Corp. has introduced two new high-voltage system power management and protection integrated circuits (ICs) with on-chip power management bus (PMBus) support. The 48 V input voltage LM5066 and -48 V input voltage LM5064 integrate high-performance system protection and management blocks that precisely measure, control and manage the electrical operating conditions in systems such as routers, switches and base stations.
