Norwood, MA (01/18/2011) - Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), the global leader in data conversion technology for high performance signal processing applications, will broadcast Converter Simulation – Beyond the Evaluation Board on January 19, 2011, at 12 pm EST. This webcast explores how A/D converter behavioral modeling tools can simulate system-level performance with greater levels of accuracy to reduce design risk. The webcast is presented by Tom MacLeod, an applications and software engineer in ADI’s High-Speed Converter group and chief architect of Analog Devices’ ADIsimADC™ online behavioral modeling tool for high-speed A/D converters.
The ADIsimADC tool is an aid to help in the selection of A/D converters (analog-to-digital converters), perform evaluations and assist with troubleshooting. The tool uses typical data values to mathematically model the general behavior of the selected ADC. It allows a user to apply input signals, set encode (sample) rates and simulate FFT's on a selected ADC. It is useful for checking the characteristics of an ADC, such as SNR, SFDR, SINAD or THD.
