Analog Devices announced the LTC2358-18, an 18-bit, 8-channel simultaneous sampling successive approximation register (SAR) ADC featuring integrated picoamp input buffers. With board real estate at a premium, the LTC2358-18 brings substantial space and cost savings by eliminating front end signal conditioning circuitry normally required to drive unbuffered switched-capacitor ADC inputs. The combined component savings of three amplifiers, six resistors and two capacitors for each channel, a total of 88 components over 8 channels, saves BOM cost and significant board space.

Reference Oscillators

Pasternack released six new free-running reference oscillators that generate a highly stable and accurate output frequency response with low phase noise and spurious performance levels, making them ideal in phase locked loops, function generators, frequency synthesizers and receivers for communication, radar, navigation, surveillance and test and measurement applications. These free-running, fixed-tuned oscillators use a high-stability internal crystal reference as an integral part of the phase-locked assembly with a buffered amplifier output stage for improved ruggedness.
