Norwood, MA (12/15/2008) - Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI), a global leader in amplifiers for signal processing applications, is simplifying amplifier and linear circuit design with offerings that make it easier for engineers to work with filters, capture schematics and simulate circuits.
December 17 Webinar: Simplify and Reduce Active Filter Design Time
The success or failure of a system design relies on proper signal conditioning in the signal path. Understanding and implementing the correct filtering to achieve the optimum trade-off in characteristics, such as rolloff, pass band flatness, and stability, are of paramount importance. In this fast-paced webinar, ADI’s analog experts will explain the process of designing a low pass and high pass active filter. Filter theory and architecture will be discussed as well as the use of design tools and new active filter evaluation boards to simplify and expedite the design process. Register for this Webinar.
More SPICE Models Available for NI Multisim™ Analog Devices® Edition
More than 500 SPICE models and over 900 symbols for ADI’s world-leading op amps and other linear circuits are now available in the National Instruments Multisim Analog Devices Edition software design tool. A recent upgrade added more than 20 new models and more than 90 symbols. This popular evaluation tool based upon the NI Multisim professional circuit design environment has been used by thousands of design engineers since it first was made available for download from the ADI website in 2007. The NI Multisim Analog Devices Edition capture and SPICE simulation software helps users quickly and easily evaluate Analog Devices amplifiers and components in an intuitive virtual circuit analysis environment. Engineers easily can swap ADI components within small circuit designs to pinpoint the best option for performance to avoid costly and time-consuming prototype rework. The NI Multisim Analog Devices Edition SPICE simulation software design tool is available for free download through the Analog Devices’ web site:
Evaluation Boards Simplify Filter Breadboard Design
ADI also is making available three new active filter evaluation boards that enable engineers to build and test active filters in a matter of minutes--instead of days. The bare boards allow users to customize the active filters to meet their individual design needs. Each evaluation board also has a companion application note to simplify the design and assembly process. Design of a filter is accomplished using ADI’s Analog Filter Wizard™ and can be verified with the NI Multisim Analog Devices Edition SPICE simulation software. The evaluation boards are free and can be ordered directly from http://www.analog.com/eval-fltr.
