Ultra-High Performance Four-Channel
Audio ADC Features Low Latency

Delivers up to 123dB dynamic

range with -110dB THD+N at
a very short group delay
The AK5388 is designed for multi-channel audio applications
that require very high performance. However, the low cost per
channel makes this part suitable as an upgrade for customers
looking to improve system performance. The combination
of wide dynamic performance and a high sampling rate, up
to 216KHz, also makes the AK5388 attractive for industrial
and instrumentation applications. In stereo mode (two total
channels), the SNR and dynamic range improve to 123dB,
with the calculations performed on the chip instead of
requiring an external DSP. When more than four channels are
required in a system, two AK5388’s can be linked using the
TDM interface mode. Another key feature is low latency (group
delay), increasingly demanded by live sound applications.
AKM’s minimal-phase FIR filter technology makes possible
the combination of low phase distortion and very low latency,
at 12.6/fs. Within AKM’s high performance ADC product
offerings, the AK5388 is positioned between the 114dB
AK5385B and the very high performance 123dB AK5394. In
price per channel, the AK5388 is only slightly more than the

GN4124 4-Lane PCI Express®-to-Local
Bus Bridge

B us I nterface
Complete Solution for Developing a PCI Express
Endpoint Application
The GN4124 is a four lane PCI Express-to-local bus endpoint bridge
that is designed to work as a companion for FPGA devices to provide FPGA GN4124
a complete bridging solution for general applications. In addition to Thin
Application PCIe
a 4-lane PCI Express compliant PHY interface, the GN4124 also Layer Controller
contains the link and transaction layers, and an applications interface
that is ideally suited to FPGA interfacing using a small number of Gennum Local

Buffers TL/LL PHY
pins. Local 4 Lanes
Application (10Gb/s)
Bus IP
Since the PCI Express transaction/link IP is hard-wired into the GN4124, 1600MB/s
there is no need to license PCIe IP. The level of integration and very using DDR FPGA Config
low power operation of the GN4124 make it an ideal alternative to Loader Space
using a PIPE PHY, where IP licensing and the cost of FPGA resources
and power consumption are unattractive by comparison. Using the
GN4124 allows FPGA resources to be spent on what differentiates the
product rather than on implementing the PCI Express protocol. www.Gennum.com/PCIe
Live on Power-up
Since the GN4124 contains a complete type 0 PCI configuration space, it is live on power-up so that a plug-and-play BIOS can auto-detect it and
enumerate it without an attached FPGA having to be configured.
FPGA On-the-Fly Configuration Loader
An FPGA configuration bitstream may be downloaded from the host system over PCIe to the attached FPGA using the on-chip FPGA Configuration
Loader (FCL). This eliminates the expense of a dedicated FPGA ROM and makes on-the-fly reconfiguration and firmware upgrades simple. Any application
requiring dynamic reconfiguration or firmware upgrades over PCIe can benefit from the use of the GN4124 as a companion device regardless of the size
or type of FPGA device used.
Local Bus Interface
The local bus interface uses dual data rate SSTL I/O to accomplish very high data rates using the fewest possible pins. A single data rate clock is used
for SSTL control signals and separate dual data rate source synchronous clocking is used for the DDR SSTL data. The SDR control signals operate at up
to 200MHz and the DDR I/O operate at up to 400MT/s across 16 bits using a 200MHz DDR clock. This provides 800MB/s in each direction.
Cost Free IP
Gennum provides a complete solution around the GN4124 to accelerate your design cycle. This includes full documentation, an evaluation board with
schematics, FPGA local bus interface IP, example FPGA application code, driver software, and example application software – all provided in source
format. All source code is provided cost/royalty free for use with the GN4124.
Single Lane Version Available
For applications that don’t require the full performance of the GN4124, the GN4121 is a lower cost single lane version. It features the same local bus
interface only operating at lower frequency. It is also software and footprint compatible with the GN4124, allowing a single design to be leveraged into
multiple end products.

ISE Design Suite 11 –
Complex Design Made Logical

Domain-specific Methodology for Targeted

Design Platforms
The ISE® Design Suite 11 is truly a next-generation advance in Xilinx FPGA design environments, offering unprecedented benefits in
three distinct but interrelated categories; productivity, time to design completion, and quality of results. In addition, the ISE Design Suite
provides a tighter connection between embedded and DSP flows to enable integration of designs that contain embedded, DSP, IP,
and user blocks in one system. To better serve users familiar with differing design environments, the new ISE Design Suite 11 provides
specific accommodations for designers ranging from the push-button user to the ASIC designer.

Instead of addressing the problem in terms of individual fixed tools, the ISE Design Suite targets the required or preferred methodology
for each user to better address their specific needs with the appropriate design flow. At this level, the design language may change
from HDL (VHDL/Verilog) to C, C++, Matlab® software from The Mathworks, or other higher level languages which are more widely
used by these designers. Likewise, design abstraction moves up from the block or component level to the system level. The result is
a methodology and complete design flow tailored to each user profile that provides complete design creation, design implementation,
and design verification. ISE Design Suite 11 will be offered in four different configurations aligned to your preferred methodology—logic,
embedded, DSP or system design.

Synchronous Step-Down Regulator
Delivers 5A from a 4mm x 4mm QFN
LTC3605 - a high efficiency, 15V, 4MHz synchronous
buck regulator that uses a constant frequency
controlled on-time, current mode architecture.
The LTC®3605 is a high efficiency, monolithic synchronous buck regulator using a phase lockable controlled on-time constant
frequency, current mode architecture. PolyPhase operation allows multiple LTC3605 regulators to run out of phase while using minimal
input and output capacitance.

The operating frequency is programmable from

800kHz to 4MHz with an external resistor. The high
frequency capability allows the use of small surface
mount inductors. For switching noise sensitive
applications, it can be externally synchronized from
800kHz to 4MHz. The PHMODE pin allows user
control of the phase of the outgoing clock signal.
The unique constant frequency/controlled on-
time architecture is ideal for high step-down ratio
applications that are operating at high frequency
while demanding fast transient response. Two internal
phase-lock loops synchronize the internal oscillator
to the external clock and also servos the regulator
on-time to lock on to either the internal clock or the
external clock if it’s present.

The LTC3605 uses internal N-channel switches with RDS(ON)s of only 35mΩ and 70mΩ to deliver efficiencies as high as 96%. Its low
minimum on-time allows low duty cycle operation at high switching frequencies. The LTC3605’s PolyPhase® operation (up to 12
phases) allows multiple regulators to be cascaded, running out of phase to minimize input and output capacitance. Current mode
operation offers fast transient response while simplifying compensation. Additional features include output tracking and a shutdown
current of only 15µA.

The LTC3605EUF is available in a 4mm x 4mm QFN-24. Pricing starts at $4.25 each in 1,000-piece quantities

ACS758 High-Current, High-Temperature,
Hall-Effect-Based Linear Current Sensor
Next Generation, 120 kHz Bandwidth, 50-200 A
Current Sensor with 100 µΩ, Integrated Current
Conductor for Reduced Power Loss
The ACS758 family of current sensors provides economical and precise solutions for AC or DC current sensing. Typical applications include motor
control, load detection and management, power supply and DC-to-DC converter control, inverter control, and over-current fault detection.

The device consists of a precise, low-offset linear Hall sensor circuit with a copper conduction path located near the
Hall sensor die. Applied current flowing through this copper conduction path generates a magnetic field which is
sensed by the integrated Hall IC and converted into a proportional voltage. Device accuracy is optimized through the
close proximity of the magnetic signal to the Hall transducer, and through the integration of a high performance
ferromagnetic core into Allegro’s custom CB package. A precise, proportional voltage is provided by the low-
offset, chopper-stabilized BiCMOS Hall IC, which is programmed for accuracy at the factory. High level
immunity to current conductor dV/dt and stray electric fields, offered by Allegro proprietary integrated shield
technology, guarantees low output ripple and low offset drift in high-side, high voltage applications. The
output of the device has a positive slope (>VCC / 2) when an increasing current flows through the primary
copper conduction path (from terminal 4 to terminal 5), which is the path used for current sensing. The internal
resistance of this conductive path is 100 μΩ typical, providing low power loss. The thickness of the copper conductor
allows survival of the device at up to 5x over-current conditions. The terminals of the conductive path are electrically isolated
from the sensor leads (pins 1 through 3). This allows the ACS758 family of sensors to be used in applications requiring electrical isolation
without the use of opto-isolators or other costly isolation techniques.

The device is fully calibrated prior to shipment from the factory. The ACS758 family is lead (Pb) free. All leads are plated with 100% matte tin, and there
is no Pb inside the package. The heavy gauge leadframe is made of oxygen-free copper.

PCI Express 2.0 ReDriver™

S ignal C onditioning
Signal Conditioners
PI2EQX5804, PI2EQX5864
Get System Stability through
Signal Integrity
Pericom’s ReDriver signal-integrity technology provides both receiver-channel signal equalization and transmit-channel signal conditioning,
eliminating noise and restoring signal quality. This allows PCIe 2.0 implementation across longer lengths of a cost-effective cable, multiple
connectors and PCB trace for maximum signal integrity and system performance.
Designed using Pericom’s proprietary high-speed differential signal equalizer technology, the PI2EQX5804 delivers signal integrity over
30 inches of FR4 trace lengths. Combining the programmable equalization techniques at the end of a trace (Rx) to compensate for signal
attenuation and the de-emphasis technique to pre-compensate transmission on outputs allows a signal to traverse through a longer
medium, beyond the standard PCIe limits. PI2EQX5804 features eight CML-differential inputs and output pairs and can “re-drive” four
complete PCIe lanes.
The PI2EQX5864 is a 4-lane (8 differential channels) subset of the PI2EQX5804 that features smaller packaging, and is a low-cost
5.0Gbps solution. The primary functional difference between these two devices is in configuration: the PI2EQX5864 can only be

Si5334/8 is Industry’s First Any-Rate,
Any-Output Clock Generator
Tim ing

Breakthrough MultiSynth technology

simplifies timing architectures and greatly
minimizes size and power requirements
The Si5338 any-rate, any-output quad clock generator from Silicon Labs is an I2C programmable clock capable of synthesizing any
frequency on each of the device’s four differential outputs with outstanding jitter performance. The device architecture is based on Silicon
Labs’ patented MultiSynth technology, which dramatically simplifies timing architectures by integrating the frequency synthesis capability
of four phase-locked loops (PLLs) in a single device. To provide additional design flexibility, each output clock is independently user-
programmable to support any signal format and reference voltage. This dramatically simplifies timing architectures by replacing fixed
frequency clock generators, discrete level translators and crystal oscillators (XOs) with a single device while minimizing cost, real estate
and power.

For applications where an I2C interface is not available or not desirable, Silicon Labs offers the Si5334 pin-controlled, any-rate, any-output
quad clock generator. Approximately 70 Si5334 clock generators are available to support popular frequency translations for a broad
range of applications. To further simplify timing architectures, Silicon Labs also offers the Si5330 low jitter, low skew clock buffer. The
Si5330 targets clock distribution applications and supports a broad range of clock format options. This product portfolio supplements
Silicon Labs’ existing XO/VCXOs, any-rate jitter attenuating clock multipliers and silicon oscillators, thus providing the industry’s broadest
portfolio of timing products and enabling customers a complete clock tree solution in next generation designs.
