Converter breaks barriers – sponsored tutorial

Analog Devices explains how its technology is helping to overcome data conversion challenges for 3G and WiMAX basestations.

As usage and demand for competitive services continue to rise, wireless infrastructure manufacturers must constantly reduce the size and cost of newly installed infrastructure, while holding to high standards of performance, functionality, and quality of service.
The data conversion block is a critical function in wireless infrastructure designs and selecting a converter that is targeted for this application is key to improving the overall system design and breaking through design barriers such as size and cost.
This kind of application places some of the highest demands on converters of any today. Sampling rates must be high and 14bit accuracy is normally required. Yet power consumption must remain low, and board space is also limited. These dimensions of performance must be balanced to provide the optimum solution.
