Swindon’s Excellence in Signal Conditioning and Microprocessor Solutions
At the centre of every sensor interface lies the crucial signal conditioning and digital signal processing functions that convert, manipulate and process the analogue signals to a usable level and format. Working closely with our customers to assess and then deliver the optimum architecture for their application, Swindon has extensive IP in everything from high resolution ADCs and DACs, ARM Cortex processors through to all types of memory.
Swindon will optimise your design for performance, size and cost providing you both a technical and commercial competitive advantage.
Full range of signal processing IP
Swindon’s 5 decades of experience has resulted in a vast array of relevant IP that can be used to provide the signal conditioning parameters that you require. Alongside this we also make use of foundry IP and supplied IP reducing development times while maximising performance.
Analogue design is one of Swindon’s primary areas of expertise.
With the development of many analog IP blocks our proven design covers many areas such as Analogue to Digital Convertors (ADC), Digital to Analogue Convertors (DAC), Amplifiers (OP Amps, TIA, LNA, VGA etc), Synthesizers, Voltage Regulators and Convertors (many different architectures), Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCO’s), Constant Current Generator, Filters and Signal Conditioning to name but a few.
Low power design
Swindon has a long and successful history in ultra-low power (nA) mixed signal ASIC design and supply with some of our automotive designs achieving a ten year operating life while being supplied from a coin cell battery and transmitting RF data to a receiver in the car. This ultra-low power capability is also seen in our industrial ASICs with sensor interfaces designed to operate with only a few mW power consumption.
The hearing aid market demands low power and small size as the devices become smaller and less obtrusive. Using a silver-zinc (Ag-Zn) rechargeable battery technology with a high energy density allows a hearing aid to run longer on a tiny battery.read more
Both are used extensively in product designs and which path to take is a conundrum that designers are often faced with. It’s an important decision that can determine the products success or failure. It is only by examining each solution for each design with up to date information that a designer can make the appropriate selection.read more
Being able to sense and interface with the analogue world is a core capability integrated into our ASIC/MEMS solutions.
Whatever your requirement, we can provide you the technology to communicate with the connected world, either wired or wireless.
