Texas Instruments' ADS5400

Texas Instruments' ADS5400

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.
