How to Design a Multiprotocol System using Only 1 ConnectorIndustrial networks support multiple serial interfaces such as RS-485 and RS-232. Using a multiprotocol transceiver enables industrial equipment to support both protocols using only one connector. Enabling both smaller and lower cost equipment designs. This video describes how to design multiprotocol systems using only one connector.
MxL UARTs Auto RS-485 Direction ControlThis video describes how the automatic RS-485 half-duplex direction control feature in MaxLinear UARTs reduces driver development and frees up CPU/MCU loading. This feature eliminates the need to monitor the status of the UART’s transmit shift register and automatically switches MaxLinear RS-485 transceivers from the transmit mode to the receive mode. This video summarizes the content in application note DAN-190.
Tips to Maintain a Successful RS-485 LinkThis video provides four tips to help maintain RS-485 serial communication without data loss
RS-485 Transceivers - Advance vs. Standard FailsafeMaxLinear offers RS-485 transceivers with both standard and advanced receiver failsafe features. This video will show the main differences and advantages between advanced failsafe receivers and standard failsafe receivers in a typical RS485 installation.
DMI920 G.hn IIoT EVK
G.hn transforms existing wiring into a high-speed networking system. It transmits high-speed data over existing AC/DC powerlines, twisted pair, or coaxial cable. It delivers robust, reliable performance for large-scale industrial applications.
The new DMI920 Evaluation Kit is MaxLinear’s G.hn industrial IoT multi-medium, multi-interface EVK. It combines the G.hn transceiver solution with MaxLinear’s pre-programmed 3-Output PMIC (XR77103-GR12), 1G Ethernet PHY (GPY115), USB to Ethernet Bridge (XR22800), and SP336E multi-protocol transceiver
Introducing Keystone: MaxLinear’s 3rd Gen PAM4 DSP FamilyIn this video, Drew Guckenberger introduces MaxLinear’s new Keystone 5nm PAM4 DSP family and provides an overview of MaxLinear’s full family of PAM4 DSPs engineered for data center solutions.
MaxLinear’s 800G Keystone DemoThis video demonstrates the performance of MaxLinear’s Keystone 800G PAM4 DSP.
XRUSB1 software driver simplifies legacy COM port support for USB UARTs in Windows
With serial ports disappearing from PCs/laptops while the number of USB ports are increasing, serial (COM) port designs are migrating to USB UART solutions. There are many USB UART vendors that offer virtual COM port Windows software drivers so that the end user can use legacy
software applications to communicate via a COM port, but MaxLinear is the only vendor who offers a Windows software drivers that recovers if a USB cable is unplugged and plugged back in without having to restart the software.
PowerArchitect™ 5 reduces engineering time and effort in power system bring-up
Programmable Power Management ICs (PMICs) require a Graphical User Interface (GUI) tool in order to be configured and interfaced with during demonstration or debugging process. This tool is essential in emphasizing programmable PMICs flexibility and speed in bringing modern power solutions up and running. In addition, it must be simple and easy to use.
MaxLinear's PowerArchitect 5 is intuitive, easy to use tool that supports entire family of programmable PMICs. With this tool, a user can configure a device to fit any application in minutes and be on the way to the power solution bring-up. Its ability to download configuration to run time registers gives user speed needed during initial circuit testing while a solution to program NVM provides permanent configuration storage. The tool is designed to emulate host interface in intended applications as well as to assist debagging power system issues.
Design 10A, 15A or 20A DC/DC converters in seven simple steps
MaxLinear's fully integrated power modules allow you to complete a power supply design in 7 simple steps. Power Modules integrate the control, MOSFETs, inductor and high frequency capacitors to greatly simplify the design of a DC/DC converter. Using MaxLinear's XR791xx family of power modules, we will go through a complete design example in a few minutes leaving you more time to focus
on making your product the best it can be. At the end of these steps, you will have a fully functional, stable and efficient DC/DC converter that meets all your requirements.
