Tucson, Ariz.-- Nov. 24, 1997--Burr-Brown Corp. announcedthe ADS7811, a complete 16-bit analog-to-digital converter(ADC) featuring unmatched performance and precisionwith a 250-kHz sampling rate--25 percent faster than the closestcompetition.
According to Frost and Sullivan Market Intelligence, the totalmarket for data converters is estimated to reach $1.3 billion in 1997and increase over 13 percent in 1998. Burr-Brown estimates that over 20 percent of this market will fall into the high-performance ADC segment.
The ADS7811 converts (digitizes) an analog input signal 250,000times per second with high (16-bit) resolution. 16 bits of resolutionallows a greater precision level to be obtained in the conversion ofan input signal.
The ADS7811's combination of high speed and high precision makesit ideal for CCD (charge-coupled device) imaging applications such asautomated manufacturing inspection cameras and telescope imageacquisition. In addition, the ADS7811 is used in DSP (digital signalprocessor) interfacing and industrial test systems.
ADS7811's design features state-of-the-art CMOS structures andcontains a complete 16-bit capacitor based SAR ADC with sample/hold,reference, internal clock, interface for microprocessor use, andthree-state output drivers. In addition, the ADS7811 offers typicalspecifications of 98dB for Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and 100dBfor Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR), giving it unparalleled ACperformance. The +/- 2.5-V input range allows development of precisionsystems using only +/- 5-V supplies.
ADS7811 is packaged in a 28-lead SOIC and priced at $34.00 in1000s. Delivery is from stock.
