Norwood, MA (01/31/2011) - Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance signal processing and the data converter market share leader*, today released two 8-bit, high-speed, low-power, low-noise A/D converters (analog-to-digital converters) designed for instrumentation and communications applications. Both 8-bit high-speed A/D converters use a pipeline architecture and consume an industry-best 310 mW of power. Watch the high-speed, 8-bit A/D converter video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DvFCn98hvU.
The AD9284 is the industry’s first dual, 8-bit, 250-MSPS A/D converter while the AD9286 8-bit 500-MSPS A/D converter delivers 8-bit resolution at 40 percent less power than competitive components. The converters feature high SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) of 49.3 dBFS and allow for a wide dynamic signal range with SFDR (spurious-free dynamic range) performance of 65 dBc. Applications for these components include battery-powered instruments, handheld scope meters and digital oscilloscopes.
The AD9286 and AD9284 can be used with ADI's ADA4960 low-distortion, ultra-high-speed differential A/D converter driver and the AD9516 clock generator to provide a data conversion signal chain solution.
