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.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
