8-channel, 12-bit, configurable ADC/DAC with on-chip reference

ad5593rThe AD5592R, AD5592R-1, and AD5593R have eight pins that can be independently configured as digital-to-analog converter (DAC) outputs, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) inputs, digital outputs, or digital inputs. Pins configured as analog outputs are driven by 12-bit DACs, with 0 V to VREF or 0 V to 2 VREF output ranges. Pins configured as analog inputs are connected to a 12-bit, 400-kSPS ADC via an analog multiplexer. The input range is 0 V to VREF or 0 V to 2 VREF. The pins can also be configured as general-purpose digital input or output (GPIO) pins. The state of the GPIO pins can be set or read back via data registers, using a serial peripheral interface (SPI) on the AD5592R/R-1 or an I2C interface on the AD5593R. The on-chip 2.5-V, 25-ppm/C reference is turned off by default. The on-chip temperature sensor measures the die temperature, which is read back as part of an ADC read sequence. The AD5592R includes an asynchronous reset input; the AD5592-1 includes a logic compatibility input; and the AD5593R includes both inputs. Operating on a single 2.7-V to 5.5-V supply, the AD559x draw 1.6 mA at 5 V, 1.1 mA at 3 V, and 3.5 A in power-down mode. Available in 16-ball WLCSP, 16-lead LFCSP, and 16-lead TSSOP packages, they are specified from 40C to +105C and priced at $3.25 in 1000s.

Digital Power Monitor with PMBus interface

adm1294The ADM1293 and ADM1294 high-accuracy integrated digital power monitors use a 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to measure current, voltage, and power. The ADC measures the primary input voltage and an auxiliary input voltage, and determines current by measuring the voltage across an external sense resistor. The digital block multiplies the current and primary input voltage to calculate power. The PMBus interface allows a master controller to read data from the device. The master controller combine this information to calculate the current, voltage, power, and energy consumption over time. The devices generate an interrupt signal when an overcurrent, overvoltage, undervoltage, or overpower condition occurs. The ADM1293 is designed for high-side monitoring over a 0-V to 20-V range.

4-input, 8-output, Adaptive Clock Translator for multiservice line cards

The AD9554 low-loop-bandwidth clock translator provides jitter cleanup and synchronization for many systems, including synchronous optical networks (SONET/SDH). It generates an output clock synchronized to up to four external input references. The digital PLL (DPLL) reduces input time jitter and phase noise associated with the external references. The digitally controlled loop and holdover circuitry continues to generate a low-jitter output clock even when all reference inputs have failed. Eight differential clock outputs at frequencies from 430 kHz to 941 MHz are individually configurable for HCSL-, LVDS-, or LVPECL compatibility. The devices support GR-1244 Stratum 3 stability in holdover mode, Telcordia GR‑253 jitter specifications in up to OC-192 systems, and ITU-T G.8262 synchronous Ethernet slave clocks. Operating on 1.8-V and 3.3-V supplies, the AD9554 dissipates 940 mW in typical configurations and 174 mW in power-down mode. Available in a 72-lead LFCSP packages, it is specified from 40C to +85C and priced at $21.33 in 1000s.

695-MHz to 2700-MHz Quadrature Demodulator includes fractional-N PLL, VCO

The ADRF6820 highly integrated demodulator and synthesizer is ideally suited for next-generation communication systems. The feature rich device consists of a high-linearity broadband I/Q demodulator, a fractional-N phase-locked loop (PLL), a low phase noise multicore voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO, a 2:1 RF switch, a tunable RF balun, a programmable RF attenuator, and two low dropout (LDO) regulators. The high isolation 2:1 RF switch and tunable RF balun support two single-ended, 50-Ω terminated RF inputs. The programmable attenuator offers a 0-dB to 15-dB attenuation range with a 1‑dB step size to ensure an optimal differential RF input level. The differential local oscillator (LO) input signal can be generated externally via a high-frequency, low-phase-noise LO signal or internally via the fractional-N synthesizer, which enables continuous LO coverage from 356.25 MHz to 2850 MHz. The PLL reference input supports a wide frequency range; divide or multiply blocks can increase or decrease the reference frequency to the desired value before it is passed to the phase frequency detector (PFD). When selected, the output of the fractional-N synthesizer is applied to a divide-by-2 quadrature phase splitter. From the external LO path, a 1 LO signal can be applied to the built-in polyphase filter, or a 2 LO signal can be used with the divide-by-2 quadrature phase splitter to generate the quadrature LO inputs to the mixers. Operating on 3.3-V and 5-V supplies, the ADRF6820 dissipates 1.4 W with internal PLL and VCO and 1.1 W with an external filter. Available in a 40-lead LFCSP package, it is specified from 40C to +85C and priced at $12.98 in 1000s.

30-MHz to 4.5-GHz RF Detector has 45-dB dynamic range

The ADL5506 complete, low-cost RF detector provides a 45-dB dynamic range over the 30-MHz to 4.5-GHz frequency range. Its high sensitivity allows measurement of low power levels, thus reducing the amount of power that needs to be coupled to the detector. The output, proportional to the logarithm of the input power level, is scaled to 18 mV/dB at 900 MHz, increasing from 0.14 V to 1 V as the input signal increases from 1.25 mV rms (−45 dBm) to 224 mV rms (0 dBm). For convenience, the signal is internally ac-coupled, using a 5-pF capacitor and a broadband 50-Ω match. This high-pass coupling determines the lowest operating frequency and allows the source to be dc grounded. Intended for use in a wide variety of wireless terminal devices, the detector provides a wide dynamic range, high accuracy, and excellent temperature stability. Operating with a single 2.5-V to 5.5-V supply, the ADL5506 consumes 3.8 mA when enabled and 1 A when disabled. Available in a 6-ball WLCSP package, it is specified from 40C to +85C and priced at $1.27 in 1000s.

200-MHz to 6-GHz RMS Power Detector has 35-dB dynamic range

The ADL5903 TruPwr rms-responding power detector provides a 35-dB dynamic range over the 200-MHz to 6-GHz frequency range. It can determine the true power of a high-frequency signal with a complex modulation envelope, including large crest factor signals such as GSM, CDMA, W-CDMA, TD-SCDMA, and LTE modulated signals. Its single-ended input is matched to 50-Ω source. The output, proportional to the logarithm of the rms value of the input, is scaled to 35.5 mV/dB at 900 MHz. The ripple-free transfer function is extremely stable over temperature. Operating with a single 3.0-V to 5.25-V supply, the ADL5903 consumes 3 mA when enabled and 100 A when disabled.

Quad 10-Ω SPST Switches offer fault protection and detection

adg5412bfThe ADG5412F, ADG5412BF, ADG5413F, and ADG5413BF contain four independently controlled single-pole/single-throw (SPST) switches. Input signal levels up to +55 V or 55 V relative to ground are blocked in both the powered and unpowered condition. These devices incorporate an overvoltage detection feature with a digital output that indicates the operating state of the switches. The ADG5412F/BF have four switches that turn on with logic-1 inputs. The ADG5413F/BF have two switches with that turn on and two switches that turn off with logic-1 inputs. Each switch conducts equally well in both directions when on, and each switch has an input signal range that extends to the supplies. The digital inputs are compatible with 3-V logic inputs over the full operating supply range. When no power supplies are present, the switch remains in the off condition, and the switch inputs are high impedance. Under normal operating conditions, if the analog input signal on any Sx pin exceeds VDD or VSS by a threshold voltage, VT, the switch turns off. The ADG5412BF/13BF also provide protection on the Dx pins. Operating on a single 8-V to 44-V supply or dual 5-V to 22-V supplies, the ADG541x draw 1.2 mA in fault mode and 0.9 mA in normal mode. Available in 16-lead TSSOP packages, they are specified from 40C to +125C and priced at $3.96 in 1000s.
