Analog Devices' new 16-bit, high-speed analog-to-digital converters — the AD9460 and the AD9461 — focus on high-speed performance. With its 105 mega-samples-per-second speed and high dynamic range, the AD9460 is a candidate for instrumentation and medical systems, such as patient-monitoring and signal analysis devices. The AD9461, meanwhile, provides designers of instrumentation, military hardware and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems with sampling rates up to 130 mega-samples per second, thus incorporating the ability to capture wider bandwidths of data. It also allows MRIs the ability to handle higher Tesla magnetic fields for superior imaging. For more information, click on http://rbi.ims.ca/4917-529.
