6-bit Monolithic Flash ADCs Sample at up to 500 MHz

AD9006 AND AD9016 Have 550-MHz Analog Bandwidth Demultiplexed AD9016 Feeds Alternate Samples to Two Databanks

The AD9006 and AD9016 are fast monolithic 6-bit "flash" a/d converters. They typically encode analog signals at rates up to 500 MSPS (470 MSPS min). The AD9006 provides output data via a 6-bit ECL latch; the AD9016 feeds its output data alternately to two 6-bit ECL latches (demultiplexing); this permits data to be read out of each at one-half the conversion rate, reducing the speed requirements for external logic.
