The AD9051 is a complete 10-bit monolithic sampling analog-to- digital converter (ADC) with an onboard track-and-hold and reference. The unit is designed for low cost, high performance applications and requires only +5 V and an encode clock to achieve 60 MSPS sample rates with 10-bit resolution.
The encode clock is TTL compatible and the digital outputs are CMOS; both can operate with 5 V/3 V logic. The two-step architecture used in the AD9051 is optimized to provide the best dynamic performance available while maintaining low power consumption.
A 2.5 V reference is included onboard, or the user can provide
an external reference voltage for gain control or matching of
multiple devices. Fabricated on a state-of-the-art BiCMOS
process, the AD9051 is packaged in a space saving surface
mount package (SSOP)and is specified over the industrial temperature range
(–40 °C to +85 °C).

How Ultrasound System Considerations Influence Front-End Component Choice
There are major trade-offs to be considered when designing ultrasound front-end circuits. Performance parameters in the front-end circuit components affect diagnostic performance—and conversely, system configuration and objectives affect the choice of components.
