National Semiconductor Introduces Five New 10- and 12-Bit High-Speed Analog-to-Digital Converters with Industry-Leading Low Power Consumption

National Semiconductor

November 3, 2003- National Semiconductor Corporation strengthened its portfolio of high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) by introducing five new 10- and 12-bit converters that feature the industry's lowest power consumption and deliver excellent dynamic performance. These ADCs meet the stringent performance requirements of a variety of markets such as digital TV, high definition TV receivers, base station transceivers, communications receivers, data acquisition systems, medical imaging and consumer video.

ADC10080, ADC10065 and ADC10040
The ADC10080, ADC10065 and ADC10040 consume only 78mW at 80 MSPS, 68mW at 65 MSPS, and 55mW at 40 MSPS, respectively, making them the lowest power ADCs in the industry.  These products feature a precision 1.2V internal reference, eliminating the need for an external reference. The differential inputs on these ADCs provide a full-scale selectable input swing of 2Vpp, 1.5Vpp or 1Vpp, allowing flexibility in board design. These ADCs also have a wide 400MHz - 3dB bandwidth, enabling their use in high-IF applications such as communications receivers. All three products are pin-compatible.

ADC12020 and ADC12010
The ADC12020 and ADC12010 are pin-compatible with National's existing 12-bit ADCs: the ADC12040, ADC12L063 and ADC12L066.  This pin compatibility provides a straightforward migration path for designers, enabling reuse of existing printed circuit board designs on various platforms.  In addition, these 5V ADCs consume only 185 mW at 20 MSPS and 160 mW at 10 MSPS, respectively.
