VadaTech Announces a FMC+ with Quad ADC 12-bit @ 1.6 GSPS

Henderson, NV – October 14, 2021 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the FMC254. The FMC254 is an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC+) per VITA 57.4 specification. The unit has four TI ADC12SJ1600, each providing 12-bit resolution at 1.6 GSPS. This ADC is ideal for light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems. The full-power input bandwidth also enables direct RF sampling of L-band and S-band. The FMC254 provides four individual ADCs, which allows interleaving among the four channels. This can be accomplished by skewing the sampling clock across the four ADC.

The board’s four Analog inputs, clock and trigger interfaces are routed via SSMC connectors. The internal clock frequency is programmable and the clock is capable of locking to an external reference.

PrimeShield Techtorial Series: Part 2 - Design Variation Analysis and Variation Robustness

Sponsored by Synopsys

To address increasing variations at advance nodes, design teams add guardband margins and signoff at higher sigma to manage risk, resulting in over-designing, thus paying higher PPA cost. Synopsys’ PrimeShield™ solutions’ innovative ML-driven statistical engine enables full statistical design variation analysis, lowers the overall pessimism, and in some cases catches potential risks of design optimism. In Part 2 of the PrimeShield Techtorial series, Synoposys covers Design Variation Analysis and Variation Robustness, giving a brief overview of each concept and discussing the value each of these brings in improving your power and performance.

ROHM's KX132-1211 & KX134-1211 Accelerometers

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ROHM Semiconductor

Machine health monitoring is a key benefit in the Industry 4.0 revolution. Integrating data from sensors for vibration detection, motion detection, angle measurement and more can give a remarkably accurate picture of machine health, and timely warning of impending failure. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Alex Chernyakov of ROHM Semiconductor about the key considerations in machine health monitoring, and how a new line of accelerometers for industrial applications can help.
