TAD9803 CCD and video signal processor features an 18-MHz correlated double sampler (CDS); low-noise; programmable gain amplifier (PGA) with 0- to 30-dB gain range; black level-correction circuit; and a 10-bit, 18-MHz analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The processor operates from a 3V supply, consumes 180 mV, and is specified for an operating temperature range from -20 to 75C. A three-wire digital interface allows programming of the internal registers. On-board clamping circuitry, PGA, and voltage reference target the AD9803 for use in electronic camera circuits and video and still-camera applications.

PAM-CAST casting simulation software is integrated into the PAM-SYSTEM software family and uses Finite Volume Analysis technology to capture the physics of and simulate the entire casting process, from the filling to the solidification phase. PAM-CAST provides metal-front and temperature visualization throughout the filling phase. It also provides temperature evolution and phase changes during the solidification. The software also features an additional module that predicts defect locations and a thixocasting option.
