TI enables the widest bandwidth and lowest phase noise for next-generation high-speed systems
Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced an analog-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 15 GHz 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.
