Atmel Announces World´s Fastest ADC
Atmel, the developer and manufacturer of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced the second in a series of high-speed integrated ADC and DMUX devices, with a new 10-bit ADC offering a clock frequency of 2 Gsps, and an embedded 1:4 LVDS demultiplexer for direct interface with standard FPGAs.
The new AT84AS004TP is fully-compatible with Atmel´s AT84AS003TP 10-bit 1.5 Gsps ADC and DMUX released earlier this year, providing identical form-factor, pin-out and functions. It allows easy upgrade from existing designs operating at slower data rates or the possibility of creating a family of products from the same board design, for high-speed digitization applications such as broadband test and measurement equipment, high speed data acquisition, telecommunications and defense.
The new device provides dynamic performance of ENOB (Effective Number Of Bits): 7.8 bits, SFDR: —55 dBFs and SNR: 51dB at 2Gsps in 1st Nyquist conditions. Gain flatness remains flat (±0.2 dB) from DC to 1.5 GHz, allowing use over the second Nyquist zone.
The AT84AS004TP is delivered in an EBGA317 package and operates over Commercial and Industrial temperature ranges. Samples are available now with production quantities in September 2005, at a unit price of $595 for a 1K-piece quantity.
