Analog Devices demos solutions for system integrators at 2022 AOC

21 October 2022

They are developers of innovative radio frequency (RF)/microwave and high-speed-digital integrated circuits (ICs) and integrated electronic design solutions. But engineers from Analog Devices Incorporated. often behave like system-level integrators for aerospace and defense (A&D) systems including radars and electronic warfare (EW) platforms. They will be present at Booth #131 of the 59th Annual Association of Old Crows (AOC) International Symposium & Convention on October 25 through October 27, 2022, in Washington, DC to share electronic design experience and expertise on the development of receivers, transmitters, data converters and other subsystem necessities for advanced and efficient electronic defense systems.

AOC events have long been convenient and trusted meeting places for defense system designers. As international events, attendees can share thoughts with NATO and EU colleagues. The AOC is fueled by more than 14,000 members around the world, sharing interests in EW, radar, electromagnetic (EM) spectrum management (such as military use of 5G), cyber-EM activities (CEMA), and information operations (IO). The 59th Annual AOC International Symposium & Convention will provide attendees with opportunities to attend a strong, practical technical conference and walk a balanced show floor withSource: Analog DevicesSource: Analog Devices diversified exhibitors, including Analog Devices.

Analog Devices will offer demonstrations of some of its latest solutions for A&D and military electronics system designers at Booth #131. On-site demonstrations will be conducted by experts in software defined radios (SDRs), wideband digitizers, multichannel radar platforms and high-frequency/high-speed data converters. One demonstration, for example, will allow developers of EW and instrumentation systems to evaluate the performance of 2 GHz to 24 GHz integrated wideband receiver and transmitter reference design. It reduces size, weight and power through a simplified architecture based on the latest RF/microwave and mixed-signal ICs. The reference design respects the production line through its straightforward assembly with ease of assembly and testing.

Another demonstration synchronizes multiple high-speed data converters and a model ADF4377 low-jitter microwave frequency synthesizer to form a direct RF sampling multichannel radar receiver platform. The compact and power-efficient radar platform includes a receiver, which incorporates analog-to-digital (A/D) converters that can directly digitize radar signals to simplify further signal processing. Additional demonstrations being presented at the Analog Devices’ AOC booth include an ”RF-to-bits” wideband 2 GHz to 18 GHz transceiver system with 1 GHz-wide intermediate frequency (IF) band centered at 4.5 GHz and the latest generation of an SDR, which can operate on its own or under software control with a personal computer for automated use.
