NORWOOD, Mass. -- February 25, 2013

Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today the AD9675 8-channel
Ultrasound Analog Front End (AFE) with on-chip RF decimator and JESD204B
serial interface, designed for mid- to high-end portable and cart-based
medical and industrial ultrasound systems. The device integrates eight
channels of low-noise amplifier, variable-gain amplifier, anti-aliasing
filter, and 14-bit A/D converter with the industry’s highest sample rate (125
MSPS) and best SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) performance (75 dB) for enhanced
ultrasound image quality. The on-chip RF decimator enables the ADC to be
oversampled providing increased SNR for improved image quality while
maintaining lower data I/O rates. The 5-Gbps JESD204B serial interface reduces
ultrasound system I/O data routing compared to other data interface standards
by as much as 80%. These features simplify ultrasound board design, while
better addressing industry demand for higher data rates, larger channel counts
and greater image resolution. A second model, the AD9674, offers the same
basic functionality but is available with standard LVDS interface. The AD9675
and AD9674 are the latest additions to Analog Devices’ award-winning octal
ultrasound receiver portfolio.

The AD9675 and AD9674 are available in a space-saving 144-ball, 10 mm x 10 mm
BGA package and are pin compatible with the AD9670/AD9671, providing easy
migration for those designs that require a reduced cost and limited digital
