Pasternack, a leading provider of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has released a new series of straight waveguide sections in sizes ranging from WR-10 to WR-137. Typical applications include instrumentation, test benches, high-efficiency RF/Microwave transmission, SATCOM, MILCOM, radar and telecom networks. Pasternack’s new line of straight waveguide sections consists of 62 models that operate in the […]
You could start with a similar op amp from a similar, known-good circuit or reference design and extrapolate from there. However, not everything labeled a reference design has actually been built and tested. But there’s another way to get organized and feel in control of the selection process. A methodical approach is outlined below that […]

What kind of noise in a resistor and double poly cap? – I know there is a thermal noise […]
TDK Corporation presents a new series of 3D transponder coils with a high sensitivity level for passive entry passive start (PEPS) and other access systems. Measuring just 11.5 mm x 12.5 mm x 3.6 mm, the B82453C*A* series features six types of 3D transponder coils that offer sensitivity levels from 45 mV/µT to 83 mV/µT […]
Multiplying digital-to-analog converters (MDACs) produce a (current) output signal that’s a product of the given reference voltage and the code (i.e., a string of 0s and 1s) flowing through it. All data converters require a voltage reference (VREF) and a typical, standard DAC needs a very stable fixed reference voltage in order to operate properly. […]
Murata Americas today introduced the PJFV series. This miniaturized, low power consuming product leverages piezoelectric ceramics to provide vibration notifications and announcements to wearable devices. It measures just 10.5mm ´ 3.8mm ´ 2mm, has a rated working voltage of 3V, and current consumption of 2mA rms. Light and sound sensing products have historically been used for notification and announcement functions. With the roll-out of the PJFV series, now vibration solutions can […]
Analog Devices, Inc. announced today a pair of highly integrated 16-channel digital-to-analog (D/A) converters that significantly reduce the system footprint for wired telecommunications systems, yet without any performance compromise. The 12-bit AD5767 and 16-bit AD5766 are fully integrated devices with all the required bias ranges for coherent optical systems of medium- to long-haul, fiber-based telecommunication […]
SiTime Corporation introduced the SiT1569 oscillator and SiT1576 Super-TCXO with expanded frequency range. These unique timing solutions, available in a tiny CSP (chip-scale package), enable coin-cell battery operated IoT sensors to run up to 10 years. By using SiTime’s revolutionary TempFlat™ MEMS and mixed-signal technology, these devices deliver increased timekeeping accuracy and system power savings. The ultra-reliable, low-jitter SiT1576 and […]
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) today announced the Cadence® Virtuoso® System Design Platform, a formal, streamlined and automated co-design and verification flow between the Cadence Virtuoso platform and Allegro® and Sigrity™ technologies. This higher level of integration enables engineers to design concurrently across the chip, package and board. By automating what has until now been a manual process, the Virtuoso […]

Murata Americas has introduced the PKMCS1818E20A0-R surface mount piezoelectric sounder for automotive applications that enables reflow mounting as an effective countermeasure against irregular mounting and abnormal sound. The product has a sound pressure level of 100 dB at 100mm and measures a diminutive 18 x 18 x 8 mm. Its wide operational temperature range means that it can operate in automobile cabin temperatures […]
