Data Converters

Analog Devices data converter portfolio includes a broad range of innovative A/D converters and D/A converters supported by the design tools and technical documentation engineers need to accelerate time-to-market. Whether the data conversion challenge is high-speed or precision, for mission-critical systems or consumer entertainment, engineers will find an ADC or DAC to suit every specification: accuracy, resolution, sample rate, bandwidth, power, size and value.

Webcast: The Latest on Driving ADCs Differentially: Part 2
This is the second of a two-part series addressing how to select the right differential ADC driver for your design. In part one we looked at the basics of driving ADCs, including errors in sampled data systems (such as distortion and noise) ENOB, differential signaling definitions, and advantages of ADC driver architectures. This month we will take these basic concepts and use them to make the driver selection and design driving circuits.
