  1. V/W-band Accelerated Life Test System

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF171122

    Within Phase I, MaXentric demonstrated the feasibility of a candidate architecture for a multi-channel RF ALT system, providing independent control and monitoring of each channel, which includes software monitoring and control of bias and RF inputs and outputs, as well as temperature control and monitoring of baseplate temperatures of the devices-under- test (DUT). MaXentrics proposed architecture ...

  2. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier


    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentrics wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. In ...

  5. A 45nm SOI-CMOS 350 MSa/s 16b ADC with FPGA Digital Calibration

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF171128

    The MaXentric team proposes A 45nm SOI-CMOS 350 MSa/s 16b ADC with FPGA Calibration. The custom ADC targets 350 MSa/s and at least 14 ENOB (showing path to 16 ENOB) under 1 W. The ADC utilizes advanced Global Foundry trusted SOI fabrication process technology to meet both performance and RADHARD specifications for other DoD applications. Techniques such as a pipelined ADC, time interleaving, and e ...
