Analog Devices digital up/downconverters serve as the frequency translator and digital filter between data converters and DSP block. These innovative products enable highly programmable and configurable receive and transmit signal chains, allowing multi-channel, multi-carrier radio platforms in 3G wireless base stations. They also meet the digital data conversion requirements for many other communications applications.
The Analog Filter Wizard™ helps you design a low-pass, high-pass, band-pass or band-stop filter with actual op amps. It then simulates the filter’s performance with these op amps in real time. You can ask the tool to optimize for power, noise, or voltage range, and it will pick op amps and passive components appropriately. Or you can adjust the components manually yourself.
The photodiode web tool helps you select and design the best circuit for your application. To use the tool, enter the specifications of your light input, including intensity, spectral band, and the required signal bandwidth. These inputs will narrow down the available photodiode part numbers.
The ADIsimADC tool is an aid to help in the selection of Analog to Digital Converterse (ADC's), perform evaluations and assist with troubleshooting. The tool uses typical data values to mathematically model the general behavior of the selected ADC. It allows a user to apply input signals, set encode (sample) rates and simulate FFT's on a selected ADC. It is useful for checking the SNR, SFDR, SINAD, THD, ENOB etc. of a selected ADC.
ADIsimDAC assists the user with finding Analog Devices' DACs and DAC Application Circuits. It takes user inputs along Typical Parametric Data to sort, select and suggest applicable DAC's, system components and circuit solutions.
ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded Gain, Noise Figure, IP3 and P1dB as well as total power consumption are calculated. The number of stages can be varied up to a maximum of 15. Additional stages can be inserted at any point in teh signal chain and individual stages can be temporarily disabled or deleted. The calculator can be switched between Transmit Mode and Receive Mode where calculations are presented output-referred and input-referred respectively.
The ADIsimPLL design tool is a comprehensive and easy-to-use PLL synthesizer design and simulation tool. All key non-linear effects that can impact PLL performance can be simulated, including phase noise, Fractional-N spurs, and anti-backlash pulse. ADIsimPLL design tool eliminates time-consuming iterations from the PLL/synthesizer development process.
ADIsimPower™ Voltage Regulator Design Tool produces custom DC-DC converter designs in about one minute. The user enters 5 inputs and chooses to optimize for efficiency, PCB space, cost, or part count. Output is a complete schematic, BOM, efficiency plot, and performance summary. A PDF summary and a blank PCB is offered for each design to facilitate fast prototyping to verify the design.
SIMetrix/SIMPLIS is a circuit simulation suite optimized for the design and development of analog and mixed signal circuits. SIMetrix mode handles general Spice applications and is ideal for linear circuits. SIMPLIS (SIMulation Piecewise-Linear System) mode is for discrete time and non-linear circuits such as PLLs and switching power supply circuits.
