The wheat plot tour will give area farmers more information on what to expect with the 2013 wheat harvest.The wheat plot tours will be held at three locations:Â â€¢Caldwell – Tuesday, May 14. Meals will begin at 6 p.m., sponsored by the Caldwell Co-op. The program will follow. The location of the plot from Caldwell, west of Bluff City Road, quarter mile north of tow, west side of road, south of the cemetery.â€¢Belle Plaine – Thursday, May 16. Meals at 12 p.m. at Hisken Ag Supply: 1459 E. 60th Ave. North, half mile east of Rock Road and East 60th North; southeast of Belle Plaine. Program to follow meal at plots, 1.5 miles east, three quarters miles south of Greenwich and East 60th Ave. north.â€¢Conway Springs – Thursday, May 16. Meals at 6 p.m., sponsored by the Farmers Co-op Grain Association of Conway Springs. Program to follow meal, located from Conway Springs, go sour on Highway 49 to 40th Street, North, 2.6 east. If increment weather, meal will be held at Gary Wolke’s, 911 W. 60th Ave. North, 1/2 mil west, two miles north and one west.
Analog Devices has introduced a mixed-signal front-end (MxFE) RF data converter platform that combines high-performance analog and digital signal processing for a range of wireless equipment such as 4G LTE and 5G mmWave radios. ADI’s new AD9081/2 MxFE platform allows manufacturers to install multiband radios in the same footprint as single-band radios, which as much as triples call capacity available in today’s 4G LTE base stations. With a 1.2 GHz channel bandwidth, the new MxFE platform also enables wireless carriers that are adding more antennas to their cell towers to meet the higher radio density and data-rate requirements of emerging mmWave 5G.By shifting more of the frequency translation and filtering from the analog to the digital domain, the AD9081/2 provides designers with the software configurability to customize their radios. The new multi-channel MxFE platform meets the needs of other wide-bandwidth applications in 5G test and measurement equipment, broadband cable video streaming, multi-antenna phased array radar systems and low-earth-orbit satellite networks.The AD9081 and AD9082 MxFE devices integrate eight and six RF data converters, respectively, which are manufactured using 28 nm CMOS process technology. Both MxFE options achieve the industry’s widest instantaneous signal bandwidth (up to 2.4 GHz), which simplifies hardware design by reducing the number of frequency translation stages and relaxing filter requirements. This new level of integration addresses the space constraints of wireless device designers by lowering chip count and yielding a 60 percent reduction in printed-circuit-board (PCB) area compared to alternative devices.The MxFE platform processes more of the RF spectrum band and embeds DSP functions on-chip to enable the user to configure the programmable filters and digital up and down conversion blocks to meet specific radio signal bandwidth requirements. This results in a 10X power reduction compared to architectures that perform RF conversion and filtering on the FPGA, while freeing up valuable processor resources or allowing designers to use a more cost-effective FPGA.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous NVIDIA brings CUDA to Arm, enabling new path to exascale supercomputingNext ams to light up Sensors Expo 2019 with innovative demonstrations
