RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Analog Devices Press Release - January 31, 2011
Analog Devices' High-Speed 8-bit A/D Converters Deliver
- Analog Devices' AD9284 is industry's first dual, 8-bit, 250-MSPS A/D converter; AD9286 is lowest
Best-in-Class Power and Noise Performance
8-bit 500-MSPS A/D converter available.
January 31, 2011 -- NORWOOD, Mass.-- ( BUSINESS WIRE)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in
high-performance signal processing and the data converter market share leader*, today released two
8-bit, high-speed, low-power, low-noise A/D converters (analog-to-digital converters) designed for
instrumentation and communications applications. Both 8-bit high-speed A/D converters use a pipeline architecture
and consume an industry-best 310 mW of power. Watch the high-speed, 8-bit A/D converter video at
The AD9284 is the industry's first
dual, 8-bit, 250-MSPS A/D converter while the AD9286
8-bit 500-MSPS A/D converter delivers 8-bit resolution at 40 percent less power than competitive components.
The converters feature high SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) of 49.3 dBFS and allow for a wide dynamic signal range
with SFDR (spurious-free dynamic range) performance of 65 dBc. Applications for these components include
battery-powered instruments, handheld scope meters and digital oscilloscopes.
The AD9286 and AD9284 can be used with ADI's
ADA4960 low-distortion, ultra-high-speed differential A/D converter driver and the
AD9516 clock generator to provide a data conversion signal chain solution.
AD9286 8-bit, 500-MSPS A/D Converter Key Features:
AD9284 Dual 8-bit, 250-MSPS A/D Converter Key

Data Converters: Bridging the Analog and Digital Worlds
More designers turn to Analog Devices than
any other supplier for the high-performance conversion technology required to bridge the analog and digital worlds
in today's myriad electronic systems. With the industry's leading portfolio of
A/D Converters (analog-to-digital converters) and
D/A Converters (digital-to-analog converters), Analog Devices' converter products feature the right
combination of sampling rates, accuracy, and reduced noise, power, price, and package size required in industrial
and instrumentation, medical equipment, automotive systems, communications infrastructure, and consumer
electronics. Online evaluation tools help customers quickly validate, select, and design in the optimal data
converters to reduce design complexity, development schedules, and bill-of-material costs. To view ADI's A/D
