12-bit 10.25-GSPS radio frequency ADC sets new performance benchmarks

Analog Devices has introduced a radio frequency (RF) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that delivers on both speed and bandwidth. The new AD9213 features higher parametric performance, greater Nyquist bandwidth, and RF sampling capabilities at higher analog input frequencies than conventional RF ADCs, allowing for the digitization of RF signals up to 7 GHz.

The AD9213 enables the next generation of software defined systems in aerospace and defense, instrumentation and communications, driving greater system integration, lower costs, reduced power consumption, and decreased size, weight, and power (SWaP). Additionally, the high sample rate and integrated post processing enable further performance gains in narrow-band applications.

The AD9213 provides aerospace and defense customers with greater flexibility and the ability to process larger sections of spectrum in electronic surveillance and countermeasures applications, as well as increased resolution and longer range in RADAR designs. The device helps electronic test and measurement manufacturers (ETM) 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. In addition, wide input bandwidths combined with high sample rates enable new wideband digital pre-distortion architectures in wireless communications applications.

AD9213 Product Highlights:

  • 2.5 times sampling compared to other similar devices

  • Greater system dynamic range for better discrimination between signals

  • Superior noise performance over a wide signal bandwidth

  • Enhanced multi-chip synchronization for phased array applications

  • Increased temporal resolution (higher sample rate)

Next Generation Freight Transport Mark Patrick | mouser Electronics
Next Generation Freight Transport
As road freight transport levels continue to grow, concerns about the impact on the environment and human health come sharply into focus. Fossil fuel dependency makes it a leading source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but shifting freight to other transportation modes will prove challenging. Solutions that will improve the efficiency and performance of road freight transport are therefore essential to achieve defined environmental goals. In this blog, we will explore a potential solution that has been pioneered by Siemens - called eHighway. This combines the efficiency of electrified railways with the flexibility of trucks in order to form an innovative, next generation freight traffic system that is efficient, economical and environmentally friendly.
