ADI’s Signal Chain Designer tool in Beta, users & feedback wanted

June 20, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
Analog Devices has posted online access to its Signal Chain Designer software tool, and is asking engineers to register, try it out and provide feedback; the tool supports design creation and calls other design packages for detailed function design.

Signal Chain Designer is an advanced product selection and recommendation toolset. It brings together a powerful search engine, verified product commendations, tested application circuits, integrated Analog Filter Wizard and Photodiode Wizard , and connects to other Analog Devices engineering tools to provide an easy-to-use, one-stop circuit builder for design engineers.

Signal Chain Designer Beta, says ADI, will help you to;

Quickly search and confidently select components to build customised signal chains

Access over 200 tested application circuits and verified product combinations

Use integrated design tools to further optimise signal chain components

Download complete design package including custom BOM, documentation, schematics, and Gerber files.

Easily share your designs and order parts or evaluation boards.

You can start by configuring a design from scratch, in the tool, or you can call a reference designs and modify it to suit your needs; video clips that illustrate both approaches are accessible from the tool's main page;
