Product Details

The AD9691 is a dual, 14-bit, 1.25 GSPS analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The device has an on-chip buffer and sample-and-hold circuit designed for low power, small size, and ease of use. The device is designed for sampling wide bandwidth analog signals of up to 1.5 GHz.

The dual ADC cores feature a multistage, differential pipelined architecture with integrated output error correction logic. Each ADC features wide bandwidth inputs supporting a variety of user-selectable input ranges. An integrated voltage reference eases design considerations.

Each ADC data output is internally connected to two digital downconverters (DDCs). Each DDC consists of four cascaded signal processing stages: a 12-bit frequency translator (NCO) and four half-band decimation filters.

In addition to the DDC blocks, the AD9691 has several functions that simplify the automatic gain control (AGC) function in the communications receiver. The programmable threshold detector allows monitoring of the incoming signal power using the fast detect output bits of the ADC. If the input signal level exceeds the programmable threshold, the fast detect indicator goes high. Because this threshold indicator has low latency, the user can quickly turn down the system gain to avoid an overrange condition at the ADC input.

Users can configure the Subclass 1 JESD204B-based high speed serialized output in a variety of one-, two-, four- or eight-lane configurations, depending on the DDC configuration and the acceptable lane rate of the receiving logic device. Multiple device synchronization is supported through the SYSREF± input pins.

The AD9691 is available in a Pb-free, 88-lead LFCSP and is specified over the −40°C to +85°C industrial temperature range.
