), or "TI," launched a high speed data converter system
evaluation kit, HSDC-SEK-10, which is priced at $799.
TI's new high-speed data converter kit comes with a pattern
capture card, pattern generator card, low-jitter clock, 10-MHz
signal source and multi-output power supply. This kit can be used
in test and measurement, communications, defense and medical
equipment. The evaluation kit can be useful in industrial,
energy, medical, consumer, telecom and communication, and defense
sectors where accurate and reliable results are vital.
Data converters have had issues such as lower voltage, lower
power and signal swings, which make them prone to noise,
grounding and decoupling.
HSDC-SEK-10 provides quick evaluation and is a complete
solution for powering, clocking and evaluating data, with fast
pattern-generating capabilities and low evaluation cost. Thus,
these features may put TI's high-speed data converter system
ahead of its competitor's offerings.
Agilent Technologies Inc.
Analog Devices, Inc.
) also offer high speed data converter systems. The success of
HSDC-SEK-10 may put TI ahead of its other competitors and help it
grow its market share.
In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, TI generated total
revenue of $2.98 billion, down 12.1% sequentially and 12.9% year
over year (slightly better than the mid-point of the recently
narrowed guidance range of $2.89 billion to $3.01 billion). The
Analog business fell 9.4% sequentially and 1.5% year over year.
The sequential decline was attributable to broad-based weakness
across the HVAL, HPA, SVA and power management product lines.
