    TI slashes cost of evaluating high-speed data converters by up to 80%

    Today we announced the industry’s highest-performance and lowest-cost evaluation boards for evaluating high-speed data converters. The TSW1400EVM data capture and pattern generation board evaluates up to 16-bit ADCs and DACs. It costs 75% less than the previous generation, while providing 2x more memory. Buy it now for US$649. That’s pretty cool in and of itself, but there’s more. The TSW1405EVM for...

    White paper now available: Designing a spreadspectrum radio transceiver

    TI partner Critical Link, an embedded systems development firm, had a customer that needed to design a spreadspectrum radio transceiver. The problem? The customer developed algorithms to modulate and demodulate the signals, but they didn’t have the resources or expertise to design the complete software-defined radio (SDR)-based system. Critical Link used its MityDSP-L138F system-on-module as the basis for...
