TI introduces lowest-power octal, 100-MSPS ADC for medical, industrial imaging

DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2013

DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI)
(NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced an octal, 12-bit, 100-MSPS analog-to-digital
converter (ADC) that provides the lowest power consumption in its class. The
ADS5295 uses less than 80 mW per channel, which diminishes board heat and
power dissipation in higher-channel-density applications. It incorporates TI's
unique digital processing block, which combines commonly used digital
functions to help improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and filter harmonics
while reducing output data rate for narrow-band applications. The ADS5295 can
be used in phase-array architecture systems with higher channel counts, such
as ultrasound, security x-ray and non-destructive testing (NDT) applications.

Key features and benefits of the ADS5295

  oLowest power per channel for the speed, with low noise: Using only 80
    mW-per-channel at 100 MSPS and eight channels, it enables designers to
    increase channel count without increasing power dissipation high-density
    applications, while still achieving a low noise of 71 decibel full scale
    (dBFS) SNR.
  oReduced system cost and complexity: TI's highly integrated digital
    processing block integrates commonly used digital functions, such as a
    low-frequency noise suppression mode, digital filtering options and
    programmable mapping of low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) output
    pins. This lowers FPGA cost and simplifies LVDS output routing, reducing
    the number of printed circuit board (PCB) layers and bill of materials
  oReduced interface lines: Outputs data over one or two wires of LVDS pins
    per channel, reducing the number of interface lines. This creates a
    two-wire interface, which keeps the serial data rate low to further reduce
    FPGA cost.

Tools and support
An evaluation module (EVM) is available to test the ADS5295 under a variety of
conditions. The ADS5295EVM can be purchased today for US$299. An IBIS model to
verify board signal integrity requirements is also available.

Availability and pricing
The ADS5295 is available now in an 80-pin HTQFP package for a suggested retail
price of US$70 in quantities of 1,000.

Optimized analog products and full portfolio for imaging applications
The ADS5295 joins the ADS529x family, which includes the 14-bit ADS5294 and
12-bit ADS5292. These devices offer eight channels at 80 MSPS, with 77-dBFS
and 72-dBFS performance, respectively.
