An IC with lower power consumption than a discrete component with built-in RC snubber (Figure 1) for inductive noise reduction, along with simultaneous and parallel use capability of different input/output voltages needed for multiple application designs is a right choice.
Until now, there has been no way to combine light-emitting semiconductors with silicon integrated circuits on a single chip, and the need to use discrete components has compromised the cost, size, speed and efficiency of high-speed communications equipment and devices.
Previously, manufacturers developed their own DAA solutions using discrete components, or used optical DAA solutions, which have only been cost-effective for the U.
ADI's single-chip approach replaces several discrete components and, when compared with existing solutions, enables designers to reduce board space and bill-of-materials (BOM) costs for clocking by more than 50 percent.
Kyocera's Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic (LTCC) Substrate is a miniaturized multilayer ceramic substrate incorporating passive components which previously had to be mounted as discrete components on a printed circuit board.
