Hittite Microwave Corporation has introduced a high-speed Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) product line. Hittite's multifunction ADC products are easy-to-use, exhibit ultra-low power dissipation and superior cost efficiency, while maintaining high SNR/SFDR performance. The ADC product line significantly expands Hittite's product offering for communications, test and measurement, military, industrial and medical applications while complementing existing RF, microwave, and mixed-signal IC product lines.
The HMCAD1520, HMCAD1511, and HMCAD1510 are multi-mode ADCs with integrated crosspoint switches (mux array). HMCAD1520 offers 12-bit resolution up to 640 MSPS in high-speed mode, and 14-bit resolution up to 105 MSPS in precision mode. The HMCAD1510 and HMCAD1511 offer 8-bit resolution up to 500 and 1000 MSPS respectively, which enables significant power savings and unique functionality in test and measurement applications. HMCAD1511 is also an excellent choice for satellite receivers. The devices each offer an integrated clock divider that provides a flexible and easy to implement clock path without sacrificing performance. These ADCs are housed in 7 x 7 mm, plastic leadless surface mount packages.
The HMCAD1102, HMCAD1101, and HMCAD1100 are Octal 12 and 13-bit ADCs, which operate up to 80 MSPS and are ideal for medical ultrasound and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). The HMCAD1102 is the only discrete Octal 12-bit ADC offering an 80 MSPS sample rate, and is an excellent choice in diversity base band receivers. These ADCs are housed in 9 x 9 mm, plastic leadless surface mount packages.
The dual HMCAD1050-40/80 and single HMCAD1051-40/80 are 13-bit ADCs, while the dual HMCAD1040-40/80 and single HMCAD1041-40/80 are 10-bit ADCs operating up to 80 MSPS. These ADCs offer the industry's best SNR performance for the lowest power consumption and lowest cost. These ADCs are ideal choices for power critical applications requiring 10 to 13-bit Analog-to-Digital conversion at input frequencies below 50 MHz.
