Texas Instruments has introduced an Analogue-to-Digital Converter (ADC) and Phase-Locked Loop (PLL) with an integrated Voltage-Controlled Oscillator (VCO) that deliver the widest bandwidth, lowest phase noise and highest dynamic range in the industry. The wideband ADC12DJ3200 is the fastest 12-bit ADC, delivering speeds up to 6.4 GSPS.
The LMX2594 is the industry’s first wideband PLL solution to generate frequencies of up to 15GHz without using an internal frequency doubler.
High density phased-array radar systems, 5G systems and satellite communications demand increased data throughput, higher bandwidth and lower power, all in smaller a footprint. A multi-node synchronisation reference design demonstrates how the ADC12DJ3200 and LMX2594 provide accurate, time-stable synchronisation for multi-node sampling systems including large-scale phased-array radars, Digital Storage Oscilloscopes (DSOs) and 5G wireless testers. The reference design showcases the LMX2594’s SYSREF forwarding feature and the ADC12DJ3200’s aperture delay adjust, time stamp and calibration features to improve accuracy and ease system design.
Next-generation architectures can take advantage of the ADC12DJ3200 ADC with the following features and benefits:
The LMX2594 RF PLL with VCO offers the following features and benefits to make it easier for engineers to design a high frequency RF signal chain:
The new ADC and PLL with VCO expand TI’s portfolios of RF sampling data converters and wideband clock and timing devices. Complete a JESD204B-compliant design with the ADC12DJ3200 and LMX2594 to simplify clocking architecture, synchronisation and data capture.
