Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a 12-bit RF analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that delivers industry-leading 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 cost, reduced power consumption and decreased size, weight, and power (SWaP). The high sample rate and integrated post processing enable further performance gains in narrowband applications.

ADI will demonstrate the AD9213 in Booth #1725 at the 2018 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) taking place June 10-15 in Philadelphia, Pa.

The AD9213 provides aerospace and defense programs 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 SATCOM customers to deliver products with increased bandwidth. In addition, wide input bandwidths combined with high sample rates enable new wideband digital predistortion architectures in wireless communications applications.

AD9213 Product Highlights:

  • 2.5x sampling compared to similar devices
  • Greater system dynamic range for better discrimination between signals: noise spectral density of 154 dBFS/Hz and SFDR of 68 dBc (1 GHz, −1 dBFS)
  • Superior noise performance over a wide signal bandwidth
  • Enhanced multi-chip synchronization for phased array applications
  • Increased temporal resolution (i.e., higher sample rate)
