Analog Devices continues to innovate in the field of data conversion by introducing a high-speed analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) that extends key converter specifications to new levels.

Analog Devices continues to innovate in the field of data conversion by introducing a high-speed analogue-to-digital convertor (ADC) that extends key convertor specifications to new levels The AD9445 is the first 14bit, 125Msample/s ADC to achieve a spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) above 80dBc and a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 72.5dBfs at input frequencies up to 300MHz, better than competing solutions by a full 10 and 4dB, respectively

A convertor with high SFDR can capture weak signals in the frequency band of interest, despite the presence of strong, interfering signals.

The industry-leading SNR characteristics of the AD9445 enable wireless infrastructure equipment
