The ADS5400 is the industry's first 12-bit, 1-GSPS
analog-to-digital-converter (ADC) with buffered input to help simplify analog
front-end design in wide-bandwidth applications such as wireless
communications, defense, and test and measurement equipment. The ADC's 12 bits
of resolution combined with a 1-GSPS sampling rate effectively doubles the
amount of signal bandwidth that can be captured in a single 12-bit ADC. The
ADS5400 offers the highest SNR (59.1 dBFS), SFDR (75 dBc) and SINAD (58 dBFS)
available for systems digitizing greater than 200MHz of instantaneous
bandwidth, while the user-selectable single- or dual-bus DDR LVDS outputs
provide designers flexibility to choose between I/O speed and pin-count.
Customer's can use the ADS5400's ground-breaking combination of resolution,
sample rate and bandwidth to significantly enhance applications in defense by
improving radar and signal intelligence (SIGINT) capabilities, and can double
the capture bandwidth of signals with 12-bit resolution in test and
measurement. In effect, customers can use the ADS5400 to create higher
performance solutions for critical applications that were unachievable with
previous A/D technology.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
