Arbitrary Waveform Generator tests mixed signal devices.
Addressing baseband and IF test needs of digital RF technologies, AWG5000 Series lets users generate Hi-Res signals for testing analog and digital baseband and intermediate frequency (IF) circuits in mixed-signal devices. Features include variable sample rates up to 1.2 GS/s and 14-bit resolution, either 2 or 4 analog channels, and up to 28 digital outputs. Vertical resolution enables signal generation with 80 dB SFDR and 2 digital markers per analog channel. Details... more »
Accurate Thermal Analysis of Chip/Package Systems
With the increasing complexity and power dissipation of modern electronic designs, controlling peak temperature and predicting the temperature profile on the chip early in the process is becoming critical for insuring system reliability. Low power design methodologies create their own thermal challenges, as they may generate "hot" and "cool" regions on the chip. Causes and soutions are explored. Details... more »
