10. 250 MSPS 16-bit ADC claims new level of signal processing performance
This story saw Analog Devices, Inc., claiming the industry's fastest 16-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with the unveiling of a 250 MSPS ADC that aims to provide a new level of signal processing performance for communications, test and measurement and defense electronics applications. The AD9467 features a high spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of up to 100 dBFs (90 dBFs up to 300 MHz) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) performance of 76.4 dBFS.
The new converter is targeting applications such as radar systems, spectrum analyzers and multi-carrier, multi-mode receiver designs for wireless infrastructure equipment that are defined by high resolution and throughput.
