Get More Mixed Signal Integration For Less Risk, Cost, and Size

MxFE_330x199 Mixed Signal Front End (MxFE®) ICs Provide ASIC- Level Integration Without the Delays, Investment, and Risk.

Mixed signal ASICs require a large investment and extend time to market. Our MxFE family offers a flexible multi-function standard product approach for communication systems. MxFE products are application specific standard products (ASSPs) offering an optimum configuration of multiple ADCs, DACs, gain stages, and analog and digital filters.

Since MxFE converters are standard products, there is no NRE and MxFE devices are available now, so time to market risk is eliminated.

Broadband CODEC MxFE converters have been developed using ADI's extensive analog and mixed signal expertise, they target any broadband home networking and access system including those based on standards including HomePlug, HPNA and Wimax among many others.

IF Subsystem MxFE ICs are general purpose IF subsystems that digitize narrow band IF input signals.These devices include low-noise amplifiers, mixers, analog-to-digital converters, AGC circuitry, and programmable filters among other features. Serial output I & Q data streams facilitate DSP interfacing for software defined radio applications. These devices offer the highest performance narrowband receiver available, enabling cost reductions for APCO 25, TETRA, VSAT, RFID, GSM / EDGE, Satellite Asset tracking and many other applications.
