Mouser Electronics Inc. has announced what it says is the industry's smallest true bipolar 5V, 18bit ADC from Maxim Integrated. MAX11156 SAR ADC offers excellent AC and DC performance with true bipolar input range, indicated the company.

The reduced-form factor Maxim device features internal reference and measures a 5V (10VP-P) input range while operating from a single 5V supply. A patented charge-pump architecture allows direct sampling of high-impedance sources. MAX11156 guarantees 18bit resolution with no missing codes and communicates using an SPI-compatible serial interface at 2.5V, 3V, 3.3V or 5V logic. The device is geared for data acquisition systems, industrial control systems/process control, medical instrumentation and automatic test equipment, stated the company.

Mouser also entered a global distribution agreement with Terasic Technologies whose product line-up includes FPGA based and programmable logic devices.

Terasic is a design partner for Altera Corp. and is a member of the Altera Design Services Network (DSN) program. As an Altera DSN partner, Terasic continues to assist Altera in providing timely services, high-quality products and excellent technical support to customers, stated the firm. The significant improvements in FPGA performance and the dramatic reduction in costs have opened up the use of programmable logic to a universe of new products. Such improvements have made programmable logic even more essential for product development, education and research.

Mouser is stocking Terasic's latest Stratix and Cyclone FPGA development tools, boards and kits, including tools for Cyclone I through Cyclone IV and the DE5-Net Stratix V GX FPGA development Kit. These kits provide ideal hardware solutions for designs that demand high capacity and bandwidth memory interfacing, ultra-low latency communication and power efficiency. The DE5-Net is designed for the most demanding high-end applications, empowered with the top-of-the-line Altera Stratix V GX, delivering the best system-level integration and flexibility in the industry, added the company.
