I believe it is Stellamar -- they sell other IP and used to be in Chicago. Xilinx, Actel, and others offer their IP via a third party arrangement. There also are ADC in FPGA app-notes by Lattice, and Altera.
There was a company who was selling IP to do this sort of thing in FPGAs -- using an LVDS input pair to drive a soft core implemented in programmable digital fabric to implement an analog to digital converter. One of the advantages they talked about was using such a part in space -- if you already had a space-qualified digital FPGA -- it was quicker / cheaper / less risky to implement an ADC in the FPGA's digital fabric than to space-qualify an analog part.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
