12-Bit A/D Converter
e2v announces its model AT84AS001TP 12-bit A/D converter that can provide 500 Msps data conversion from a single monolithic chip, allowing system designers to digitize intermediate frequency (IF) signals with frequencies up to 500 MHz at twice the sampling rate of conventional 12-bit ADCs. The converter is suitable for applications that include telecommunication infrastructure, high IF broadband digital receivers, test and measurement equipment, high speed data acquisition and radar and communications systems. Designers have the flexibility of using any combination of three SiGe bipolar (NPN) transistors, each of which provides a different optimization for power and speed. The highest speed transistor has an Ft of 62 GHz, and it is used for high-performance blocks.
