Product Details

The AD9213 is a single, 12-bit, 6 GSPS/10.25 GSPS, radio frequency (RF) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a 6.5 GHz input bandwidth. The AD9213 supports high dynamic range frequency and time domain applications requiring wide instantaneous bandwidth and low conversion error rates (CER). The AD9213 features a 16-lane JESD204B interface to support maximum bandwidth capability.

The AD9213 achieves dynamic range and linearity performance while consuming <4.6 W typical. The device is based on an interleaved pipeline architecture and features a proprietary calibration and randomization technique that suppresses interleaving spurious artifacts into its noise floor. The linearity performance of the AD9213 is preserved by a combination of on-chip dithering and calibration, which results in excellent spurious-free performance over a wide range of input signal conditions. 

Applications that require less instantaneous bandwidth can benefit from the on-chip, digital signal processing (DSP) capability of the AD9213 that reduces the output data rate along with the number of JESD204B lanes required to support the device. The DSP path includes a digital downconverter (DDC) with a 48-bit, numerically controlled oscillator (NCO), followed by an I/Q digital decimator stage that allows selectable decimation rates that are factors of two or three. For fast frequency hopping applications, the AD9213 NCO supports up to 16 profile settings with a separate trigger input, allowing wide surveillance frequency coverage at a reduced JESD204B lane count.

The AD9213 supports sample accurate multichip synchronization that includes synchronization of the NCOs. The AD9213 is offered in a 192-ball ball grid array (BGA) package and is specified over a junction temperature range of −20°C to +115°C.

AD9213 Remote Evaluation Tool

This tool gives users access to a live AD9213 evaluation board in an Analog Devices lab, connected to signal and clock generators, and an ADS8-V1EBZ FPGA board for data capture. The user is able to run tests on this remote lab bench to evaluate the AD9213 performance at any time, day or night. It is a great way to check performance of the product before, or in lieu of, purchase of an evaluation board. This tool can also be used to compare performance to a user-designed board.
