CMOS 10-bit 15 MHz ADC for Imaging Applications

AD875 uses a single +5-volt supply and dissipates only 185 mW (<50 mW in standby)

The AD875 is a 10-bit, 15-MHz A/D converter designed to digitize high-high speed stepped signals, such as the outputs of charged-coupled devices, infrared imagers, and multichannel data-acquisition systems. Implemented in CMOS, it has low power requirements –185 mW typical, 235 mW max, and even less (<50 mW) in the power-down standby mode – an important feature in portable battery-operated systems, such as camcorders and electronic still cameras.
