NORWOOD, Mass. -- January 14, 2014

Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today two 14-bit A/D converters
that provide the lowest power in the smallest package size in their class. In
industrial ultra-sound and instrumentation, healthcare imaging, military
countermeasure and communications receiver applications, the 16-channel,
65-MSPS AD9249 and the 8-channel, 125-MSPS AD9681 A/D converters meet designer
needs for high-performance, multi-channel data acquisition at low power where
a small package size is crucial to the overall design.

The AD9249 integrates 16 A/D converter channels into a single package and
dissipates 58 mW of power per channel at 65 MSPS, which reduces thermal
concerns in high-channel-count designs. The 8-channel AD9681 dissipates 110 mW
per channel at 125 MSPS. Both converters are available in a compact 10-mm x
10-mm package, feature on-chip sample-and-hold circuit and achieve a spurious
free dynamic range greater than 90dBc and signal-to-noise ratio of 74 dBFS or

In addition to low power and a small footprint, the AD9249 and AD9681 A/D
converters are easy to use with data clock outputs (DCO±1, DCO±2) that operate
at frequencies of up to 500 MHZ and 455 MHz respectively and support
double-data-rate operation. They require a single 1.8 V power supply and an
LVPECL-/ CMOS-/LVDS-compatible sample rate clock for full performance
operation. No external reference or driver components are required for many
