CADEKA Introduces Industry’s Lowest Power Octal ADCs

CADEKA introduces the industry’s most power efficient, eight channel analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The CDK8307 family consists of four 8-channel, 12-bit ADCs that operate at 20, 50, 65, and 80MSPS. They offer the lowest total power dissipation on the market today to enable more energy-efficient medical imaging, wireless infrastructure, test and measurement, and video equipment.

The CDK8307 employs internal reference circuitry, a serial control interface, and serial LVDS output data. Both 12-bit and 14-bit LVDS output modes are available and selected through an SPI control interface. These converters utilize proprietary pipeline architecture to offer the industry’s best power/performance ratio and are designed to easily interface with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) from several vendors.

“At 50MSPS, the power dissipation is 40mW per channel. That’s over 30% lower power than the closest competitor in its class,” explains Jay Dokter CADEKA’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Our CDK8307 is pin compatible to many devices on the market today, allowing designers of portable imaging applications to easily and significantly reduce their system power consumption without sacrificing performance or image quality.”

For additional power savings, the CDK8307 includes Power Down and Sleep Modes that drop the power consumption to <10µW and 3mW per channel respectively. In addition, the unprecedented wake-up times (18µs from Power Down and 0.5µs from Sleep) of the CDK8307 allow system designers to switch off the ADC during idle modes, reducing the system’s average power dissipation.

In addition to ultra-low power, the CDK8307 offers excellent noise performance. At 14-bits and 50MSPS, the CDK8307 outperforms the competition with 72.5dB signal to noise ratio (SNR) and 80dB spurious free dynamic range (SFDR). This unique power/performance combination makes the CDK8307 well suited for portable ultrasound equipment and a wide variety of applications in the medical, instrumentation, and communication markets.

An easy to use evaluation board is available to allow fast and cost-effective evaluation, shortening the design process.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies
