Richardson RFPD Introduces Pair of New Converters from ADI
March 28, 2012 Press Release
-- True 16-Bit Voltage Output DAC and 14-Bit ADC Are Latest Additions to Broad Range of Converters to
Suit Every Specification
March 28, 2012 – La Fox, Illinois: Richardson RFPD, Inc. today announces
immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a pair of new converters from Analog Devices, Inc.
(ADI). The devices are the latest additions to ADI's broad range of digital-to-analog (DAC) and analog-to-digital
(ADC) converters that meet every data conversion challenge and application, and cover every specification,
including accuracy, resolution, sample rate, bandwidth, power, size and value.
AD5760 is a single 16-bit, unbuffered voltage output DAC that operates from a bipolar supply of up to 33 V.
The device accepts a positive reference input range of 5 V to VDD-2.5 V and a negative reference input range of
VSS+2.5 V to 0 V. It offers a relative accuracy specification of ±0.5 LSB maximum, and operation is guaranteed
monotonic with a ±0.5 LSB DNL maximum specification. The device is ideally-suited for applications like medical
instrumentation, test and measurement, industrial control, scientific and aerospace instrumentation, data
acquisition systems, digital gain and offset adjustment, and power supply control.
True 16-bit voltage output DAC, ±0.5 LSB INL (B Version) or ±2.0 LSB INL (A Version)
8 nV/√Hz output noise spectral density
0.00625 LSB long-term linearity error stability
±0.018 ppm/°C gain error temperature coefficient
2.5 μs output voltage settling time
3.5 nV-sec midscale glitch impulse
Integrated precision reference buffers
Operating temperature range: −40°C to +125°C
4 mm × 5 mm LFCSP package
Wide power supply range of up to ±16.5 V
35 MHz Schmitt triggered digital interface
1.8 V-compatible digital interface
AD9642 is a 14-bit ADC with sampling speeds of 170, 210 or 250 MSPS. The device is designed to support
communications applications, where low cost, small size, wide bandwidth, and versatility are desired. The ADC core
features a multistage, differential pipelined architecture with integrated output error correction logic. The
device offers wide bandwidth inputs that can support a variety of user-selectable input ranges. An integrated
voltage reference eases design considerations. A duty cycle stabilizer (DCS) is provided to compensate for
variations in the ADC clock duty cycle, allowing the converter to maintain excellent performance.
Common configurations are in stock and available for immediate delivery. To find more information, or to purchase
