More and more often your application is taking real world, analog input through sensing or human interaction and turning it into digital data. This data in turn enables analytics, automated control, visualization and storage functions. Avnet will show you how to ensure the analog signals being captured are quickly and accurately converted to your processor. We’ll work with you on every component or ‘link’ in the analog signal chain, making sure there are no weak links anywhere along the way.
A device for every function and performance level
If you’re designing a radar application for transportation or Aerospace and Defense, we’ll collaborate with you to optimize your high-speed analog signal chain to feed your programmable logic device or digital signal processor (DSP). If your application requires a high signal-to-noise ratio for precise industrial test and measurement equipment, we’ll show you the right combination of products to meet your specifications.
Avnet offers every analog technology from the industry’s top suppliers in each category. We’re an authorized source for every product we offer so you never have to worry about where your parts came from.
Here is an overview of the type of products we offer for the analog signal chain.
- Amplifiers & Comparators
- Power Management
- Data Conversion
- Sensor Analog Front-Ends
- Interface & Signal Equalizers
- Switches & Multiplexers
Our product management team works directly with the factory planners to make sure our inventory has the right mix of components and development tools.
Experts who understand the art and science of analog
Our analog technical experts demystify the design process around managing the frequencies, amplitude and modulation of an analog signal. They’ll show you how to really get the most out of your application using reference designs, block diagrams and their years of practical experience.
When you’re ready to test your design, we have different options to complete the task. One is we’ll walk you through the steps using evaluation kits produced by our supplier for their specific parts. The other is to use the development kits created by Avnet which will show you how your signal chain will perform with your chosen processor.
If you’re just getting started with your analog signal chain, you’ll want to attend one of Avnet’s local technical seminars. These events include technical presentations around design techniques that go beyond the review of a data sheet. You’ll also get to see live demonstrations and get a chance to practice what you’ve learned during the hand’s-on labs.
The rest of the components to match your signal chain
The analog signal chain is just one element your overall solution. We look at the big picture and offer everything else you’ll need to finish your design. Our team will match passive and interconnect devices to move the signal on and off your board, processors for the conversion of analog data into actionable instructions and memory and storage devices to complete the project.
As you move from conception to final design, we’ll support you with supply-chain services to release your product to the open market. You’ll achieve greater efficiency, improved cash flow and positively impact your bottom line when you use our services. We can do this for you globally and also integrate contract manufacturing into the mix if you’re looking to outsource your board builds.
From concept to design through market release and sustaining demand, Avnet is the right partner to help address every aspect of your analog signal chain requirements.
