Analog Devices claims RF ADC sets test and defence benchmarks
An RF ADC from Analog Devices is claimed to deliver industry leading speed and bandwidth. The AD9213 has higher parametric performance, greater Nyquist bandwidth, and RF sampling capabilities at higher analogue input frequencies than conventional RF ADCs, claims Analog Device. It allows for the digitisation of RF signals up to 7.0GHz.
The 12-bit AD9213 enables the next generation of software defined systems in aerospace and defence, instrumentation and communications, continues Analog Devices. It drives greater system integration, lower costs, reduced power consumption, and decreased size, weight, and power (SWaP). The high sample rate of 10.25 Gsamples per second is claimed to be 2.5 times that of similar devices. Coupled with integrated post processing there are further performance gains in narrow-band applications, adds the company.
The ADC allows aerospace and defence customers to process larger sections of spectrum in electronic surveillance and counter measures applications, as well as increased resolution and longer range in radar designs. Electronic test and measurement manufacturers can use it to create greater product differentiation and new levels of performance in time-domain applications, such as digital oscilloscopes and spectroscopy/chemical analysis.
The wider Nyquist bandwidth allows satellite communications customers to deliver products with increased bandwidth, says Analog Devices. In addition, wide input bandwidths combined with high sample rates enable wideband digital pre-distortion architectures in wireless communications applications.
