Analog Devices Inc. AD9217 RF Analog-to-Digital Converters

Analog Devices Inc. AD9217 RF Analog-to-Digital Converters are single, 12-bit, 6GSPS/10.25GSPS, radio frequency (RF) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a 6.5GHz input bandwidth. The AD9217 Converters deliver high dynamic range frequency for time-domain applications requiring wide instantaneous bandwidth and low conversion error rates (CER).

The ADI AD9217 RF Analog-to-Digital Converters provide low latency, high speed, parallel CML output interface that supports full bandwidth operation with compatible FPGA/ASIC receivers. The AD9217 allows reconfiguration to operate in native AD9213 mode for applications requiring additional digital processing and JESD204B output support.

The AD9217 ADCs consume 4.2W typical while concurrently achieving dynamic range and linearity performance. The device is based on an interleaved pipeline architecture and features a proprietary calibration and randomization technique that suppresses interleaving spurious artifacts into its noise floor. The linearity performance of the AD9217 is protected by a combination of on-chip dithering and calibration, which results in excellent spurious-free performance over a wide range of input signal conditions.

The AD9217 is housed in a 192-ball ball grid array (BGA) package and is specified over a junction temperature range of −20°C to +115°C.
