high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, will highlight its latest semiconductor innovations at Embedded World 2011 in Nuremburg, Germany, Mar. 1-3 at Stand 12-136.
Silicon Laboratories Inc. (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive mixed-signal ICs, today announced that it is providing its latest digital multi-band receiver technology to Tecsun, a leading Chinese manufacturer of portable radios.
For compact systems of eight ports or less, the Si3480 power manager provides a pin-programmable, stand-alone solution that does not require an interface to an intelligent host, making it ideal for unmanaged switches or other applications in which the user wants full-featured active power management without having to write or integrate system software.
As the high-fidelity market increasingly adopts digital audio technology and high-efficiency standards, developers are designing energy-efficient "green" systems that meet Energy Star guidelines while delivering exceptional audio performance and enabling BOM cost reductions.
The Si5350/51 clock generators leverage Silicon Labs' patented MultiSynth technology to provide superior frequency flexibility, lower jitter, lower power and smaller footprint than any three-PLL or four-PLL clock generator on the market today.
Silicon Labs leveraged its expertise designing low-jitter, frequency-flexible timing products to develop a device capable of replacing quartz-based oscillators with an all silicon solution, dramatically cutting oscillator lead times from up to twelve weeks to only two weeks.
The QuickSense Si1102 sensor enables an electronic device to quickly gauge its proximity to the user. For example, it can detect if a handset is near a user's face and adjusts the display and lighting accordingly.
The QuickSense Studio Configuration Wizard simplifies the integration of human interface technologies in end products, allowing engineers to set up capacitive buttons, sliders and wheels, and ultimately touchscreens, by using an intuitive software GUI that generates all the C code required for the selected functions.
Historically, complex timing architectures have required multiple clock generators and/or standalone crystal oscillators (XOs) to provide the range of frequencies needed by the end application, often at the expense of cost, design complexity and power.
Digi-Key's on-site digital programming simplifies procurement of standard and custom frequencies, eliminating non-recurring expense (NRE) charges and minimum order quantities typically required for custom-frequency XOs. This results in lower development and initial production costs.
The Si5355 leverages a single PLL architecture and Silicon Labs' proven MultiSynth fractional divider technology to provide greater frequency flexibility and lower jitter than 3 PLL or 4 PLL clock generators.
An integrated 24.5 MHz precision internal oscillator and flexible UART baud rate generator allow UART communications over the full temperature and supply voltage range without the addition of a crystal. This saves cost, board space, and increases reliability.
Offering a CPU throughput of up to 50 MIPS, the F5xx family enables real-time computations instead of look-up tables, which reduces code size. Signal processing algorithms can be implemented in real-time, reducing the need for external filtering components, which in turn lowers system complexity and cost.
The high-resolution CDC, which features a 40 microsecond acquisition time combined with a 25 MIPS CPU, provides sophisticated and highly responsive touch sense functions to replace mechanical buttons, sliders and wheels.
