Texas Instruments unites speed and efficiency with industry's fastest dual, 14-bit ADC

New 250-MSPS data converter provides 66 percent greater bandwidth than competing dual ADCs

DALLAS, April 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN) today introduced a dual, 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) at 250 MSPS (mega samples per second) to deliver a premier combination of wide signal bandwidth, high dynamic performance and low power consumption. The ADS62P49 achieves 73-dBFS signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and 85-dBc spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) at an input frequency of 60 MHz. With the industry's fastest sample rate, the ADS62P49 provides increased signal bandwidth without compromising range and sensitivity in communications and defense imaging systems or accuracy in wide-band test and measurement equipment. (For more information or samples, see www.ti.com/ads62p49-pr)

"Communications, defense and test design engineers are constantly challenged to create signal and data acquisition receivers with increasingly wide signal bandwidths that do not compromise overall system performance," said Art George, senior vice president of TI's High-Performance Analog business unit. "TI addresses these challenges with the ADS62P49 which delivers high-performance, compact, power-efficient designs and enables rapid deployment of 3G and 4G systems, software defined radios and spectrum analyzers."

Key features and benefits of the ADS62P49

    --  Fastest dual, 14-bit ADC at 250 MSPS enables multi-channel,
        wide-bandwidth sampling without sacrificing dynamic performance, for
        enhanced accuracy in portable test equipment
    --  Low power of 625 mW per channel reduces thermal footprint for increased
        system efficiency in high-density, multi-antenna base station receivers
        and software defined radios
    --  Programmable gain and other user-selectable settings maximize design
        flexibility. Internal gain up to 6 dB in 1-dB steps allows customers to
        optimize SNR, SFDR and input swing based on the unique need of their
        applications.  Designers can maximize SNR to enhance linearization
        effectiveness in digital pre-distortion (DPD) solutions, while SFDR can
        be increased and input drive reduced to improve small-signal analysis in
        defense and radio receiver applications
    --  Complete signal chain with comprehensive evaluation tools suite speeds
        time to market. Complementary products include: DACs (DAC5682Z,
        DAC5688), amplifiers (THS4509), RF components (TRF3703, TRF3761), DPD
        transmit processors (GC5325), clock distribution circuits (CDCE72010)
        and digital signal processors (TMS320C674x)

-- First in a series of four 12- and 14-bit dual channel ADCs with sample rates of 210 and 250 MSPS (ADS62P28, ADS62P29, ADS62P48). Pin-compatible to dual-channel ADS6000 family for easy upgrades in speed and resolution

Availability and pricing

The ADS62P49 is available today in a 9 mm x 9mm QFN package for $144.75 in 1,000-piece quantities. The ADS62P49EVM has on-board sockets for a voltage-controlled crystal oscillator, crystal filter and TI's newest high-performance clock distribution and jitter cleaning chip, the CDCE72010, which allows the EVM to function as a system-level evaluation kit and an ADC evaluation board.

Customers can also leverage TI's TSW1200 digital capture tool for rapid evaluation of LVDS-output ADCs of up to 16-bit resolution and 500-MSPS sample rates to enable prototyping of complex systems and to further speed development time.
