Power Supply Management of GaN MMIC Power Amplifiers for Pulsed Radar

by David Bennett and Richard DiAngelo, Analog Devices, Inc. Systems that incorporate highly integrated and highly sophisticated, high power radio frequency (RF) GaN power amplifiers (PAs), such as pulsed radar applications, are a constant challenge for today’s digital control and management systems to keep up with these ever-increasing levels of sophistication. To compete in this […]

Step-Down Regulator

The LTM8065 is a uModule (power module) step-down regulator with up to 40V input voltage (42V max.), which can safely operate from unregulated or fluctuating 12 to 36V input supplies in noisy environments such as industrial robotics, test and measurement, medical, factory automation, and avionics systems. ANALOG DEVICES, INC. (5)

Hybrid Step-Down DC/DC Controller

The Power by Linear™ LTC7821 is an industry-first hybrid step-down synchronous controller that merges a switched capacitor circuit with a synchronous step-down controller, enabling up to a 50% reduction in DC/DC converter solution size compared to traditional step-down solutions. ANALOG DEVICES, INC (3)

Low Power Active Mixer

The LTC5562 is a low power, high performance active double-balanced mixer, capable of 50 ohm matching over a very wide frequency range of 30 MHz to 7 GHz. This versatile mixer can be used in either frequency upconversion or downconversion applications, with outstanding conversion gain of 2 dB. ANALOG DEVICES, INC. (19)

Receiver IC Blend Mixers, Synthesizers, and IF Amps

by Marc Goldfarb, Ben Walker, Russell Martin, Tom Bosia, Ed Balboni, and Dragoslav Culum, Analog Devices, Inc. Wireless base stations were once contained in large, climate controlled spaces—but now, they could be mounted anywhere. As wireless network service providers attempt to achieve coverage everywhere, the pressure is on base station component suppliers to provide more […]

Improved DAC Phase Noise Measurements Enable Ultra Low Phase Noise DDS Applications

by Peter Delos and Jarret Liner, Analog Devices, Inc. In radar applications, phase noise is a critical performance metric for systems requiring high clutter attenuation. Phase noise is a concern for all radio systems, but radar in particular can require phase noise performance at frequency offsets much closer to the carrier than a communication system. […]

Step-Down Silent Switcher® 2

The LT8650S is a dual 4A, 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator. Its unique Silent Switcher 2 architecture uses four internal input capacitors as well as two internal BST and a single INTVCC capacitor to minimize the area of the hot loops. The design dramatically reduces EMI emissions. ANALOG DEVICES, INC. (8)

Active Rectifier Controller

The Power by Linear™ LT8672 is an active rectifier controller with reverse input protection to -40V. Its 3 to 42V input voltage capability is ideal for automotive applications which must regulate through cold-crank and stop-start scenarios with minimum input voltages as low as 3.0V and load dump transients up to 40V. The unit drives an […]

µModule® Step-Down Regulator

The LTM8065, a µModule (power module) step-down regulator, has up to 40V input voltage (42V abs max), which can safely operate from unregulated or fluctuating 12 to 36V input supplies in noisy environments such as industrial robotics, test and measurement, medical, factory automation and avionics systems.
