Maxim Integrated – MAX77650/MAX77651: Ultra-Low Power PMIC with 3-Output SIMO and Charger

FTMOct2017-MaximIntegrated-tile-200x200

The MAX77650 and MAX77651 feature single inductor multiple output (SIMO) buck-boost regulators that provide three independently programmable power rails from a single inductor, 150mA LDO, and three current sink drivers to reduce overall component count and maximize available board space. For desigexibility, the MAX77650 operates up to 3.3V and the  MAX77651 operates up to 5V—both include […]

Maxim Integrated – Choose a Flexible and Scalable Front-End Tuner for Your Software Defined Radio

FTMSept2017-MaximIntegrated-tile-200x200

Introduction Traditional radio receivers integrate a front-end tuner with a baseband processor, hardwired to one specific radio standard. This means that there are as many radio receiver chips as there are standards. In contrast, Software Defined Radio (SDR) architectures perform the baseband processing using software, enabling reception of a wide range of radio standards with […]
