The AD9240 is a 10 MSPS, single supply, 14-bit analog-to- digital converter (ADC). It combines a low cost, high speed CMOS process and a novel architecture to achieve the resolution and speed of existing hybrid implementations at a fraction of the power consumption and cost. It is a complete, monolithic ADC with an on-chip, high performance, low noise sample-and-hold amplifier and programmable voltage reference. An external reference can also be chosen to suit the dc accuracy and temperature drift requirements of the application. The device uses a multistage differential pipelined architecture with digital output error correction logic to guarantee no missing codes over the full operating temperature range.
The input of the AD9240 is highly flexible, allowing for easy interfacing to imaging, communications, medical and data-acquisition systems. A truly differential input structure allows for both single-ended and differential input interfaces of varying input spans. The sample-and-hold amplifier (SHA) is equally suited for multiplexed systems that switch full-scale voltage levels in successive channels as well as sampling single-channel inputs at frequencies up to and beyond the Nyquist rate. The AD9240 also performs well in communication systems employing Direct-IF Down Conversion, since the SHA in the differential input mode can achieve excellent dynamic performance well beyond its specified Nyquist frequency of 5 MHz.
A single clock input is used to control all internal conversion cycles. The digital output data is presented in straight binary output format. An out-of-range (OTR) signal indicates an overflow condition which can be used with the most significant bit to determine low or high overflow.

Virtual Eval - BETA
Virtual Eval is a web application to assist designers in product evaluation of ADCs, DACs, and other ADI products. Using detailed models on Analog’s servers, Virtual Eval simulates crucial part performance characteristics within seconds. Configure operating conditions such as input tones and external jitter, as well as device features like gain or digital down-conversion. Performance characteristics include noise, distortion, and resolution, FFTs, timing diagrams, response plots, and more.
For designers who are selecting or evaluating high speed ADCs, VisualAnalog™ is a software package that combines a powerful set of simulation and data analysis tools with a user-friendly graphical interface.
