The EV12AQ605 from Teledyne e2v is a 12-bit quad-channel analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The ADC delivers a 6.4GSps single-channel sampling rate, 3.2GSps/channel while in dual-channel mode and 1.6GSps/channel in quad-channel mode. It can be operated as a standalone unit or synchronized to ADC counterparts. The output data is delivered at speeds of up to 12. 8Gbps via a low-latency ESIstream serial link. The EV12AQ605’s input bandwidth exceeds 6.5 GHz (in extended bandwidth mode) and the number of channels used, gain, offset and sample delay are all programmable through its SPI interface.
This ADC is supplied in a 16 x 16mm BGA package and is ideal for phased-array radars, LiDAR systems, high-speed industrial data acquisition hardware, wideband satellite receivers, automated test equipment, and advanced digital instrumentation applications.
