I prefer to put the mixer and analog stuff together with the ADC and then let the digital stuff be handled by purely digital part - the FPGA and CPU! The digital guys are faster in shrinking dies and packing more logic circuits in a smaller package than the analog guys. Putting the troublesome analog stuff together to form a subsystem or front-end will indeed help to really achieving a higher performance and yet smaller solution. Linear Technology has some ideas that is proven to be quite successful. LTM900x is a very interesting series but just don't know if those guys are happy to play around in the medical field.

Now that IS a thought- moving logic off the FPGA and onto the analog device. Seems like we have been going the other way for far too long. Now if you just move some FPGA fabric onto the AD6655 for custom filtering and interface we might have a real winner...
