Aiming to take signal processing performance for communications, test and measurement and defense electronics applications to a new level Analog Devices, Inc., (ADI) recently released a 16-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) which the company claims now makes the device the industrys fastest ADC.

The new AD9467 ADC features a maximum sampling rate of 250 MSPS which ADI claims is up to 25% faster than its nearest rival. In addition, the company is also claiming power savings of up to 40% for the new 16-bit ADC.

Claiming a high spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of up to 100 dBFs (90 dBFs up to 300 MHz) the AD9467 is also offering a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) performance of 76.4 dBFS.

The new ADC is initially targeting applications such as radar systems, spectrum analyzers and multi-carrier, multi-mode receiver designs for wireless infrastructure equipment that are defined by high resolution and throughput. The devices SFDR performance and 60-femtosecond rms jitter allow engineers to increase system performance even as they reduce the size of their equipment.
