TI introduced its new ADC3660 family of successive-approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The eight new ADCs offer higher speeds and reduced power usage, leading the industry in speed with the fastest 18-bit ADC.
These new ADCs range from 10 to 125 MSPS. Sampling speeds include 14-, 16- and 18-bit resolutions. The product features ultra-low latency, up to 80% lower than competitive ADCs, and reduction of up to 65% in power consumption. The ADCs come in 5-mm-by-5mm thin quad flat no-lead (WQFN) packaging.
TI’s ADC3660 solutions support high-speed data gathering and offer real-time control in industrial applications such as portable defense radios, sonar imaging, and GPS. Improvements in latency allow precision data monitoring and quick response to voltage and current spikes.
