The MAX1213N is a monolithic, 12-bit, 170Msps analog-to-digital converter (ADC) optimized for outstanding dynamic performance at high-IF frequencies beyond 300MHz. The product operates with conversion rates up to 170Msps while consuming only 720mW.

At 170Msps and an input frequency up to 100MHz, the MAX1213N achieves an 87dBc spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) with excellent 67.2dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) that remains flat (within 2dB) for input tones up to 250MHz. This makes it ideal for wideband applications such as communications receivers, cable-head end receivers, and power-amplifier predistortion in cellular base-station transceivers.

The MAX1213N operates from a single 1.8V power supply. The analog input is designed for AC-coupled differential or single-ended operation. The ADC also features a selectable on-chip divide-by-2 clock circuit that accepts clock frequencies as high as 340MHz. A low-voltage differential signal (LVDS) sampling clock is recommended for best performance. The converter provides LVDS-compatible digital outputs with data format selectable to be either two's complement or offset binary.

The MAX1213N is available in a 68-pin QFN package with exposed paddle (EP) and is specified over the industrial (-40°C to +85°C) temperature range.

Evaluation Kit for the MAX1213N and MAX1214N

Features and Benefits

  • Up to 170Msps (MAX1213N)/210Msps (MAX1214N) Sampling Rate
  • Low-Voltage and Low-Power Operation
  • Fully Differential Signal Input Configuration
  • On-Board Differential Output Drivers
  • Fully Assembled and Tested

Product Detail

The MAX1213N/MAX1214N evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested circuit boards that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX1213N or MAX1214N analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The EV kits feature a singled-ended-to-differential conversion circuit to drive the MAX1213N/MAX1214N inputs. The digital outputs produced by the ADC can be captured with a user-provided high-speed logic analyzer or data-acquisition system. Additionally, the EV kits include circuitry that generates a differential clock signal from a user-provided single-ended AC signal.
