|12-Bit ADC Samples Up to 250Msps|
CA -Maxim Integrated Products sets a new 12-bit sampling-speed standard with the introduction of the MAX1215, a
12-bit 250Msps analog-to-digital converter (ADC). At 250Msps, this new ADC has the world's fastest sample rate at
the 12-bit level, and delivers outstanding dynamic performance over input frequencies as high as 300MHz. The MAX1215
is ideal for designers who need to implement higher order power-amplifier predistortion, because the 250Msps update
rate allows them to sample wider bandwidths with greater dynamic range than could have been sampled before. The
device also consumes 34% less power than the closest competitor, whose sampling rate is only 210Msps.
MAX1215 achieves a spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) of 74dBc. It has an excellent signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of
66dB at 10MHz which remains flat (within 2dB) for input tones up to 300MHz. Such excellent dynamic performance makes
this device suitable for wideband applications like cable-head end receivers and power-amplifier predistortion in
cellular base stations.
This high-speed, 12-bit ADC runs on a single 1.8V supply. The analog
input is designed for either differential or single-ended operation and can be AC or DC coupled. The selectable
on-chip, divide-by-2 clock circuit reduces the phase noise of the input clock source. The digital outputs are LVDS
compatible, and the data format can be selected as either two's complement or offset binary.
MAX1215 completes a family of pin-compatible 8-, 10-, and 12-bit parts that can sample up to 250Msps, as shown in
the table below. Like the rest of the family, the MAX1215 is in production and available in a space-saving, 68-pin
TQFN-EP package specified for the industrial temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). An evaluation kit is available to
shorten design time. Pricing starts at $47.50 (1000-up, FOB USA).
