These webcasts are created by engineers for engineers. They typically run about 40 minutes, and most do not require registration.

Sensor Signal Conditioning with Synchronous Demodulation - This webcast will discuss the some of the basic concepts of synchronous demodulation and what benefits this technique brings to sensor signal conditioning. We will then examine real world examples to explore some of the subtleties of implementing systems using synchronous demodulation.

Simplifying Radio Design Using a Wideband IF Receiver Subsytem IC - This webcast will demonstrate how designers of high-performance communication equipment can reduce the complexity of their receiver designs while simultaneously achieving frequency planning flexibility and industry-leading instantaneous dynamic range (NF as low as 13 dB with IIP3 up to 36 dBm).

Solving Next Generation Aerospace and Defense Challenges - Analog Devices enables the most advanced A&D systems with fast time to market and high ROI using a broad portfolio of innovative component and system level solutions. In this webcast, we will discuss how Analog Devices can solve next generation and advanced system challenges across a wide range of applications. Various system level solutions and rapid prototyping platforms will be detailed including a direct conversion L & S Band Radar Receiver platform.

RF Connectorized Components and Signal Generators - This webcast will showcase Hittite Microwave Products from ADIís broad range of connectorized modules. Attendees will learn how to use these components to combine transmitter and receiver functions, allowing them to produce prototypes, demonstrations, and production hardware covering 0.1 GHz to 40 GHz. Functions include amplifiers, VCOs, synthesizers, mixers, switches, attenuators, detectors, and signal generators.

Wireless Sensor Networks Solutions - This webcast is an overview of ADIís Wireless Sensor Network demonstration system. We begin the webcast by describing the advantages and disadvantages of different types of systems. Next, we discuss the key parameters to consider when evaluating a system or building your own. We conclude with a discussion on the best ways to use energy harvesting to power wireless sensing systems.

Interfacing GSPS Data Converters to FPGAs - A new generation of high-performance GSPS data converters are poised to simplify wideband RF architectures and greatly enhance system capabilities. This webcast explores the conversion technology as featured on a reference design and quick-start FPGA-friendly prototyping module. Topics covered include: GSPS ADC and DAC IC technology, an overview of the JESD204B interface, and the software that makes the converters and FPGA work together seamlessly.

Integrated Approach to SPI using Digital Isolator Technology - SPI is used for IC-to-IC communications. Unidirectional lines make it easy to isolate, but interrupts and in-band addressing for target devices are not supported, so extra isolated channels are usually required. Also, the clocking scheme links the bus speed to the propagation delay of the isolation. This webinar looks at new integrated SPI digital isolators that address these shortcomings.

Troubleshooting your SAR ADCs - This webcast discusses the three main areas of support circuitry associated with high-resolution SAR ADCs. The first part focuses on driving the reference, choosing passive and active components, noise contributions, and performance characteristics. Next, we discuss front-end support circuitry, properly driving the ADC, and overstress protection. We conclude by highlighting support tools for evaluating or prototyping with ADI converters.

High-performance GSPS Data Converters Improve RADAR & EW Architectures - In recent years, ADCs sampling at GSPS rates have been pushing the data conversion stage closer and closer to the antenna, but when analog bandwidths reach 1 to 2 GHz, the ac performance of ADCs may be limited by the linearity and noise spectral density. This webinar discusses the advantages of new GSPS converters and the impact on radar and electronic warfare systems.

Digital Potentiometers - Where and How to Use - Digital Potentiometers (digiPOTs) provide a convenient way to adjust the ac or dc voltage or current output of sensors, power supplies, or other devices that require some type of calibration. This webcast describes the advantages of using digital potentiometers in various applications and shows the main parameters to be considered when designing a circuit using a digital potentiometer.

Isolation in Ultra Low Power Applications - Advances in isolation technology have reduced the power consumption of digital isolators by orders of magnitude, enabling safety and convenience in low-power applications. This webcast looks at several designs that take advantage of quiescent currents less than 1 ĶA per channel, including 4-20 mA field instrumentation, telecom interfaces referenced to negative 42-V rails, and battery operated devices.

Developing Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Systems with the AD9361 - As software defined radio (SDR) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) become more prevalent, there is a need for more channel diversity. This webcast will detail how to use multiple AD9361 RF agile transceivers to create an N◊N MIMO system, as well as explore the available tradeoffs in the design. The AD9361 is a fully integrated 2◊2 MIMO transceiver. Its programmability and wideband capability make it ideal for a broad range of transceiver applications.
