Track-and-Hold Amplifiers For Advanced Test Equipment

The GigaTrack™ family of 2-GS/s track-and-hold amplifiers (THA) from Inphi® Corp. (Westlake Village, CA) delivers ultra-wide 18-GHz analog bandwidth. The bandwidth, sample rate, and linearity make direct conversion and software-defined receivers possible, and help advance highsample- rate test and measurement equipment. The GigaTrack amplifiers operate from a single -5.2 V power supply and dissipates 1.3 W. They are available in a 49-pin ceramic ball-grid array and in 24-pin QFN packages. The devices are designed for engineers designing next-generation instrumentation, ATE, and military equipment. They enable engineers to replace numerous components in heterodyne receiver architectures with a track-and-hold and a high-samplerate ADC. A direct conversion receiver can serve multiple applications with system differentiation occurring in software or firmware. The GigaTrack family consists of four track-and-hold amplifiers with 2-GS/s sample rates. The ball-grid-array versions offer 18-GHz (small signal) and 15-GHZ (0.5V pp) input analog bandwidths, with settling times >60 ps and power consumption of 1.3 W. Plastic QFN versions offer 13-GHz analog bandwidth (100mV pp).

Card Provides PCI-Based Multi-Axis Motion Control

Performance Motion Devices (Lincoln, MA) offers the Prodigy™-PCI motion card for multi-axis motion control. Available in 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-axis versions, the card provides trajectory generation, performance trace, on-the-fly changes, and commutation. Motor type can be software- selected on a per-axis basis, and includes DC brush, brushless DC, step, and microstepping. The card communicates via a PCI bus, CANbus, or serial port. Card features include S-curve, trapezoidal, velocity contouring, electronic gearing, and user-generated profile modes. The card accepts input parameters such as position, velocity, acceleration, and jerk from the host, and generates a corresponding trajectory.
