Amplifiers

AR RF/Microwave Instrumen tation (Souderton, PA) offers Mo dels 15S1G6 and 50S1G6 single-band amplifiers that provide 15 and 50 Watts of linear output power, respectively, across the 1 – 6 GHz frequency band. The ability to use one band instead of two means less power usage. The amplifiers do not need to be switched from one band to the other to perform the required tests. The amplifiers feature a remote interface standard, a low noise figure, and output VSWR of 1.5:1.

Multicore SoCs

Texas Instruments (Dallas, TX) recently unveiled six new multicore System-on-Chips (SoCs) based on its award winning KeyStone architecture. These 28-nm devices integrate TI’s fixed-and floating-point TMS320C66x digital signal processor (DSP) generation cores with multiple ARM® Cortex™-A15 MPCore™ processors, facilitating the development of a widerange of infrastructure applications that can enable more efficient cloud experiences. TI’s six new highperformance SoCs include the 66AK2E02, 66AK2E05, 66AK2H06, 66AK2H12, AM5K2E02 and AM5K2E04, all based on the KeyStone multicore architecture. With KeyStone’s low latency, high bandwidth multicore shared memory controller (MSMC), these new SoCs yield 50 percent higher memory throughput when compared to other RISCbased SoCs.

12-Bit Analog-to-Digital Converter

Touchstone Semiconductor (Milpitas, CA) has announced the new TS7003, a single-supply, single- channel, 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The TS7003 combines a 10-MHz track-and-hold (T/H), a high-speed serial digital interface, and an internal ±0.6%-initial accuracy +2.5V, 30ppm/°C reference into a very small 3mm × 3mm TDFN package. Operating from +2.7V to +3.6V supplies, it consumes less than 2.8mW when converting at 300ksps. An external serial-interface clock gives the system designer full control over the TS7003’s conversion process and its output shift register operation.
