DallasTexas Instruments Inc. (TI) has introduced a monolithic 12-bit, 550-MSPS (mega samples per second) analog-to-digital converter (ADC), which provides more than 200 MHz of signal bandwidth in applications where high resolution, accuracy and linearity are critical.
According to TI, its pipeline ADC offers the highest spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) available for input frequencies (IF) above 500 MHz. This enables more efficient power amplifier linearization in digital pre-distortion (DPD) solutions, better range and sensitivity in defense imaging and communication systems, and higher accuracy in wide-band test and measurement equipment, the company said.
Pricing: $175 in 1000-piece quantities.
