Anadigm� announces first of a series of Configurable Analog Starter Kits

Nov 09, 2004

TEMPE, Ariz. � Nov. 8, 2004 � In a move to give designers a range of prepackaged solutions for building complex analog circuits, Anadigm� today launched the first of a series of Configurable Analog Starter Kits that include ready-to-use EDA files, source code for dynamic configuration, and extensive step-by-step instructions for implementing the circuit in a field programmable analog array (FPAA).

Three new starter kits are available now from the new Download Center on the Anadigm� Web site at http://www.anadigm.com/Supp_06.asp?tab=des.

Subwoofer Signal Conditioner: This starter kit presents three examples of potential single-chip FPAA subwoofer signal conditioning circuits. Each example contains a subsonic filter, low-pass filter, and compressor. The filter corner frequencies can be dynamically controlled and compression characteristics can be arbitrarily defined. Also included are a spreadsheet tool to help calculate typical compression characteristics and a sample Microsoft Windows� C-code application demonstrating dynamic C-code control of the circuit.

Audio Effects � Phaser: This starter kit describes a reference design for implementing a simple audio phase shifter using a single AN221E04 FPAA. In addition to guitar effects, its time-base-controlled software implementation provides users with a set of techniques that can be used for implementing a number of circuit types that work on the basis of preset delays or a known time constant. The downloadable software includes source code for dynamic reconfiguration, which is presented in a Windows GUI.

Dynamic Programming Guide � Low-Frequency Filter Design Kit: This start-up kit explains how to build any type of low-frequency filter using the AnadigmDesigner�2 EDA software and a single FPAA device. Complete instructions show how to use C-code automatically generated by AnadigmDesigner�2 to control all the attributes of the filter dynamically. This starter kit also introduces a new AnadigmDesigner�2 feature that allows direct interfacing with Microsoft C++ or Microsoft.net to produce a lab version of a dynamic control tool very quickly.

In addition to these complete starter kits, the new Download Center includes an �AnadigmDesigner�2� page where customers can register for and download a copy of AnadigmDesigner�2; a �Customer CAMs� page from which users can download individual configurable analog modules, which prepackage basic analog circuit functions; a �Design Guides� page that allows the user to access technical files; and a �Literature Library� page where all documentation is available for download.

A complete evaluation kit with a development board, entry-level software, and updated documentation is now available at a promotional price of $199. Pricing for the FPAA family of silicon products ranges from $4.95 to $7.69 in 10,000-piece quantities.

About Anadigm�

Anadigm� brings platform-based design to the analog world with pre-qualified software and hardware components that allow complex analog circuits to be implemented in an analog equivalent to the FPGA. Designed to implement signal conditioning, filtering, data acquisition, closed-loop control, and other analog functions in a wide range of embedded systems, Anadigm� FPAAs are the first programmable analog ICs that can adapt on the fly to perform multiple functions, adjust to different environmental conditions, or compensate for aging equipment. Founded in January 2000 as a venture-backed technology spinoff from Motorola, Anadigm� maintains U.S. headquarters in Tempe, Ariz., and European headquarters in Crewe, UK.
