Texas Instruments Unites Speed and Efficiency In Fast, Dual 14-bit ADC
April 21, 2009 -- Texas Instruments, Inc. (TI) has introduced a dual, 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) at 250Msps (mega samples per second) to deliver a premier combination of wide signal bandwidth, high dynamic performance and low power consumption. The ADS62P49 achieves 73-dBFS signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and 85-dBc spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) at an input frequency of 60MHz. With the fast sample rate, the ADS62P49 provides increased signal bandwidth without compromising range and sensitivity in communications and defense imaging systems or accuracy in wide-band test and measurement equipment.
Key features and benefits of the ADS62P49
Availability and Pricing
The ADS62P49 is available today in a 9x9-mm QFN package for $144.75 in 1,000-piece quantities. The ADS62P49EVM has on-board sockets for a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator, crystal filter and TI's newest high-performance clock distribution and jitter cleaning chip, the CDCE72010, which allows the EVM to function as a system-level evaluation kit and an ADC evaluation board.
Designers can also leverage TI's TSW1200 digital capture tool for rapid evaluation of LVDS-output ADCs of up to 16-bit resolution and 500-Msps sample rates to enable prototyping of complex systems and to further speed development time.
