Analog Devices Introduces Highly Integrated Octal and Quad ADCs for
Demanding Medical Imaging and Communications Applications
-- High-speed A/D Converters Feature More Channels, Lower Power and Smaller Package Size
Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices Inc. (ADI), a
global leader in high-performance signal processing technology, announced today the addition of four high-speed
A/D data converters to its market-leading data converter product portfolio. The two octal- and two quad-channel
converters are designed for medical imaging and communications applications where the combination of high channel
density, low power and small size provide systems engineers with greater design flexibility and lower per-channel
cost for data conversion.
Data Conversion for Medical Imaging All of the new converters support the higher channel
densities of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) systems, medical ultrasound and other high-end imaging applications,
such as industrial visual inspection systems and non-destructive ultrasound. The AD9253 14-bit and AD9633 12-bit
quad A/D converters are offered in a non-magnetic package and can be used safely within the magnetic field of an
MRI system. This allows the converters to be placed closer to the signal of interest, which can increase the
quality of image resolution and image throughput while reducing the overall component count.
components for these high-speed converters include the AD8334 quad, ultralow noise VGA (variable gain amplifier)
for ultrasound applications.
