Inphi to Showcase Monobit Receiver Application at Microwave Symposium

Answering the critical need for high-speed and performance for electronic warfare and electronic counter-measure applications, Inphi Corporation will demonstrate a monobit receiver application that utilizes its market-leading 25706CP 25 GHz Latched Comparator, which features the industry’s highest sampling rates of up to 25 GHz, at the 2008 International Microwave Symposium (IMS). This advanced technology enables detection and identification of gigahertz frequencies in real time at a fraction of the size, weight, and cost of conventional methods. The demonstration will take place at Inphi’s Booth #222 at IMS, held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, June 17 – 19, 2008.

“The Military market’s demand for high-speed monobit receivers is growing exponentially,” said Francis Ho, business line manager of High Speed Logic for Inphi Corporation. “Monobit receivers enable the measurement of simultaneous signals in real-time to detect radar pulses and other signals, and the heart of that technology is a high performance latched comparator. With the highest performing family of latched comparators in the industry, Inphi is the preferred supplier among customers requiring performance, reliability, and value.”

Inphi’s technology gives customers phenomenal bandwidth and low jitter that directly impact key performance specifications in end-user systems. Key features of Inphi’s 25706CP 25 GHz Latched Comparator are:

  • Supports clock rates up to 25 GHz
  • Random Jitter: 200 fs RMS
  • Fast rise and fall times: 15 ps
  • Output amplitude: 1.2 Vpp differential
  • Single +3.3 V power supply (-3.3 V supply part also available)
  • 100 ps propagation delay input to output (Clk-Q)
  • Low power consumption: 550 mW
  • Hysteresis: <5 mV
  • Supports single-ended and differential operation
