Finding the right combination of parts to create a signal chain can be a complex and daunting task, due to time demands, unfamiliarity with various technology areas, and the enormous amount of unproven solutions scattered across the Web. Signal Chain Designer is an intelligent selection and design tool that accesses verified product combinations and applications circuits, which can be customized or newly created according to user specifications. The Signal Chain Designer experience is supported by direct access to online EE design tools, evaluation hardware, software, documentation, and ADI Circuits from the Lab® reference circuits.
