12-Bit, 41 MSPS Monolithic A/D Converter
The AD9042 is a high speed, high performance, low power, monolithic 12-bit analog-to-digital converter. All necessary functions, including track-and-hold (T/H) and reference are included on chip to provide a complete conversion solution. The AD9042 runs off of a single +5 V supply and provides CMOS-compatible digital outputs at 41 MSPS.
Designed specifically to address the needs of wideband, multichannel receivers, the AD9042 maintains 80 dB spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) over a bandwidth of 20 MHz. Noise performance is also exceptional; typical signal-to-noise ratio is 68 dB.
The AD9042 is built on Analog Devices' high speed complementary bipolar process (XFCB) and uses an innovative multipass architecture. Units are packaged in a 28-pin DIP; this custom cofired ceramic package forms a multilayer substrate to which internal bypass capacitors and the 9042 die are attached. The AD9042 industrial grade is specified from -40°C to +85°C. However, the AD9042 was designed to perform over the full military temperature range (-55°C to +125°C); consult factory for military grade product options. Future package options: a plastic surface mount package will also be qualified; consult factory for the latest specifications on this package option.
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
