Optimal Clock Sources for GSPS ADCs Reference Design


The ADC12D1600RFRB reference design provides a platform to demonstrate a high speed digitizer application which incorporates clocking: power management: and signal processing. The reference design utilizes the 1.6 GSPS ADC12D1600RF device: onboard FPGA Xilinx Virtex 4: and high performance clock synthesizer LMX2531 to meet the system requirements of a 9 bit ENOB high speed digitizer.

  • 2 Channels of GSPS analog-to-digital conversionGreater than 9 bits ENOB over wide input frequency rangeProtoype for low cost dual channel high speed digitizer for test and measurement systems
  • Oscilloscope (DSO)
  • Data acquisition (DAQ)
  • Vector signal transceiver (VST)
  • Wireless communications test
