Analog Devices & X-Microwave collaborate to simplify RF design

Analog Devices has announced that it has entered into a collaboration with X-Microwave LLC, a provider of RF and microwave modular blocks, to help designers more quickly and effectively evaluate RF components and prototype complete signal chains. As a first phase of the joint effort, X-Microwave will feature more than 250 ADI RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products as drop-in modular blocks.

Analog Devices offers the largest portfolio of more than 1,000 RF, microwave and millimeter-wave components, in addition to the software and support tools needed to help RF engineers develop complete signal chain solutions for their applications from DC to 100 GHz. X-Microwave’s innovative resources allow engineers to evaluate easily new RF components and build signal chains simply by arranging the “modular building blocks” and simulating the designed system with X-Microwave’s online tools. This is in contrast to traditional, cumbersome system development methods that require a designer to connect multiple evaluation boards using dozens of cables. Together, Analog Devices and X-Microwave enable system designers to access the industry’s most capable products in a simple evaluation and prototype format, easing their design process, shortening time to market and reducing development costs.

“We are delighted to partner with Analog Devices, the leader in RF, microwave and millimeter-wave technology,” said John Richardson, CEO of X-Microwave. “X-Microwave is committed to adding products and capabilities with the single purpose of optimizing the engineering design experience of our customers, and this collaboration with ADI does just that by providing designers with a simpler way to evaluate and use ADI's broad range of industry leading parts.”

“By adding X-Microwave to our design ecosystem we are further enhancing the 1000+ ways for our customers to develop quickly market-leading RF and microwave solutions,” said Greg Henderson, vice president, RF and Microwave Group, Analog Devices. “Analog Devices is committed to not just providing RF, microwave and millimeter-wave products, but also to simplifying the way designers build their applications. We believe the collaboration between ADI and X-Microwave will further simplify our customers’ design experience and time to market.”

The benefits of replacing plain old paper with e-paper displays in automotive assembly plants
Efficiency is at the heart of automation, and that is nowhere more apparent than in the manufacture of automobiles. The Ford Motor Company is widely credited with inventing the moving assembly line, but the concept of moving the assembly, rather than the worker, dates back centuries.
