D.SignTs TCP/IP Stack, specifically optimized for DSP systems, now available for C6657 Processors

Optimised for DSP systems D.SignT developed its own TCP/IP network stack. For many years this stack has been used in several applications. This TCP/IP stack can operate as a background process using only the remaining processing time after all other tasks are completed, thereby not influencing the real-time performance of the DSP system. All functions are non-blocking and interruptible at any time. Resource consumption has been minimized, too.

D.SignT now also ported this network stack to the Texas Instruments Processor TMS320C6657. The D.SignT TCP/IP stack does not require an underlying … Read More → "D.SignTs TCP/IP Stack, specifically optimized for DSP systems, now available for C6657 Processors"

Ultra-Wideband 3GHz to 20GHz Mixer Supports DC to 6GHz IF & 0dBm LO Drive in a Tiny 3mm x 2mm Package

MILPITAS, CA & NORWOOD, MA – August 14, 2017 – Analog Devices, Inc., which recently acquired Linear Technology Corporation, announces the LTC5552, a double balanced mixer that features best-in-class wideband matching from 3GHz to 20GHz. The mixer can be used as an up- or downconverter. The LTC5552 is especially useful in upconversion applications with its DC capable differential IF port that enables the LO to be close in frequency to the RF. Its low LO to RF leakage of less than –25dBm greatly eases the burden on the external filter. Additionally, the mixer delivers excellent linearity of 20.1dBm IIP3 at 14GHz, and 18.3dBm at 17 … Read More → "Ultra-Wideband 3GHz to 20GHz Mixer Supports DC to 6GHz IF & 0dBm LO Drive in a Tiny 3mm x 2mm Package"
