ADI releases chip that reduces SWaP footprint in military applications - News

May 16, 2018
NORWOOD, Mass. Officials at Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) released an integrated, active antenna beamforming chip that allows designers to replace bulky, mechanically steered antenna platforms with a compact, solid-state solution for phased array radar and communications systems.

RF transceivers provide breakthrough SWaP solutions for defense and aerospace applications - Story

October 19, 2016
Integrating more software control and cognitive abilities to military radios demands a more frequency- and bandwidth-flexible radio frequency (RF) design. To achieve this goal, static filters need to be removed and replaced with tunable filters. Similarly, the concept of a common platform would allow for shorter development times, reduced manufacturing costs, and provide greater interoperability between systems. The common platform demands that the RF system be capable of providing full performance for applications that traditionally have had very different architectures. Future radio platforms are pushing size and power demands to a new extreme.

Cybersecurity business of Sypris Electronics sold to Analog Devices - News

August 25, 2016
NORWOOD, Massachusetts. Officials at Analog Devices, Inc. announced that the company has acquired the Cyber Security Solutions (CSS) business of Sypris Electronics LLC., in Tampa, Florida, which is owned by Sypris Solutions in Louisville, Kentucky.

Analog Devices buys Linear Technology - News

July 28, 2016
NORWOOD, Massachusetts. Analog Devices, Inc. officials announced the pending acquisition of Linear Technology Corp. for a cash and stock transaction that values the combined venture at about $30 billion. With the merge of the companies, officials anticipate an approximate $5 billion in annual revenues in the analog industry with data converters, power management, amplifiers, interface, RF, and microwave products.

Bandwidth is king in aerospace and defense applications - Story

January 29, 2016
Wider frequency communication bands require not only a larger observed bandwidth from a system analog-to-digital converter (ADC), but can also push the need for a higher full-power bandwidth. In some applications, such as electronic warfare (EW) and active phased-array radar, this can require the use of a higher order Nyquist rate band. Next-generation gigasamples per second (GSPS) ADCs allow GHz sampling well into the 3rd and 4th Nyquist band with decimation options to get the dynamic range benefits of oversampling. If an ADC's input bandwidth is high enough, it is possible to downconvert directly in the ADC by undersampling the infrared (IF) signal of interest. Higher-bandwidth input signals and sample rates enable direct RF sampling of wider band signals and possible reduction of an entire stage in a signal chain for lower system power and simplicity.

SWaP: The RF solution that can mean the difference between flying high and being grounded - Story

October 07, 2015
Defense and commercial airborne platforms differ in many ways: Defense platforms focus on multifunction systems and power management for mission-critical functions such as electronic warfare, fire control, radar, etc., while commercial aircraft place high emphasis on safety and system redundancy. One area of common concern for both is maximizing payload efficiency. Every ounce of weight, cubic centimeter of space, and milliwatt hour of power is carefully planned, as both focus on balancing size, weight and power (SWaP). Advances in RF technology can provide a leapfrog advantage for manned and unmanned aircraft in both markets.

RF & microwave innovation drives military radar and electronic warfare applications - Story

September 01, 2015
In this Q & A with Bryan Goldstein, General Manager of the Aerospace and Defense business unit at Analog Devices, he discusses how innovations such as Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology is driving the radio frequency (RF) and microwave market and, in turn, radar and electronic warfare designs. He also comments on the?evolution in defense procurement. Edited excerpts follow.
