San Diego, CA -- September 18th, 2006
– IQ-Analog will license a 12-bit/100-Msps 0.13m version of its Dino ADC product line to Faraday, with an option to migrate to a 90nm geometry. IQ Analog’s 12-bit ADC is almost twice as efficient, in terms of power consumption, as the nearest competitive platform. The die area of the Dino ADC is less than half the size of present industry offerings, representing substantial cost reductions and competitive advantages for IQ-Analog partners and customers.
Proprietary digital processing techniques are at the core of IQ-Analog’s ADC product portfolio. The use of continuous background calibration capabilities deliver disruptive new levels of performance, lower power consumption and cost effectiveness for applications in cellular base station transceiver (BTS) applications, WiMAX, WiFi, digital imaging, and broadband communication markets.
IQ Analog is headquartered in San Diego, CA and is a privately held company.
