Product Details

The AD9258 is a dual, 14-bit, 80 MSPS/105 MSPS/125 MSPS analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The AD9258 is designed to support communications applications where high performance, combined with low cost, small size, and versatility, is desired.

The dual ADC core features a multistage, differential pipelined architecture with integrated output error correction logic. Each ADC features wide bandwidth differential sample-and-hold analog input amplifiers that support a variety of user-selectable input ranges. An integrated voltage reference eases design considerations. A duty cycle stabilizer is provided to compensate for variations in the ADC clock duty cycle, allowing the converters to maintain excellent performance.

The ADC output data can be routed directly to the two external 14-bit output ports. These outputs can be set to either 1.8 V CMOS or LVDS.

Flexible power-down options allow significant power savings, when desired.

Programming for setup and control is accomplished using a 3-wire SPI-compatible serial interface.

The AD9258 is available in a 64-lead LFCSP and is specified over the industrial temperature range of −40°C to +85°C.

Product Highlights

  1. On-chip dither option for improved SFDR performance with low power analog input.
  2. Proprietary differential input that maintains excellent SNR performance for input frequencies up to 300 MHz.
  3. Operation from a single 1.8 V supply and a separate digital output driver supply accommodating 1.8 V CMOS or LVDS outputs.
  4. Standard serial port interface (SPI) that supports various product features and functions, such as data formatting (offset binary, twos complement, or gray coding), enabling the clock DCS, power-down, test modes, and voltage reference mode.
  5. Pin compatibility with the AD9268, allowing a simple migration from 14 bits to 16 bits. The AD9258 is also pin compatible with the AD9251, AD9231, and AD9204 family of products for lower sample rate, low power applications.
