Four channel a/d converter features ‘industry’s lowest power and package size’

Analog Devices has introduced a new four channel high speed a/d converter for medical imaging and communications applications.

The AD9653 16bit device joins the previously released 12 and 14bit versions to form a pin compatible, power and size optimised series that the company says will provide greater design flexibility and lower per channel cost for data conversion.

The device supports the higher channel densities of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems and is offered in a non magnetic package so it can be placed closer to the signal of interest, increasing the image quality and throughput while reducing the overall component count.

It is also well suited to multiple input, multiple output based radios, 3G infrastructure equipment and other wireless communications applications. Its small package size, low power dissipation, and power scaling functionality are said to be ideal for femto and pico cell basestation designs.
