Save up to 91% Power and up to 50% Space with Industry's Fastest 20-Bit SAR ADC

 Save up to 91% Power and up to 50% Space with Industry's Fastest 20-Bit SAR                                      ADC  Maxim Integrated's versatile SAR ADC integrates internal reference buffers and designers now get a wider dynamic range with no trade-off in precision, speed, or power  PR Newswire  SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2014  SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Engineers can achieve the industry's highest resolution and fastest sampling rate at the lowest power with the MAX11905, a  20-bit, 1.6Msps successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM).  Logo for Maxim Integrated Products Inc.  Typically, when engineers require high-precision data conversion, they turn to a delta-sigma ADC. However, to produce high precision and wide dynamic range, those ADCs must consume at least 100mW of power. In contrast, the MAX11905 SAR ADC consumes only 9mW—a 91% power savings. With this power savings comes very high (20-bit) precision and the fastest sampling (1.6Msps) rate available. The MAX11905 also integrates internal reference buffers, which reduces cost and time to market, and saves up to 50% space compared to competitive discrete solutions. With this versatility, the MAX11905 is ideal for a wide range of applications, including process control, automatic test equipment, medical instrumentation, and battery-powered devices.  Key Advantages    oHigh speed: the MAX11905 enables 1.6Msps throughout with no latency and     settling time limitation.   oHigh performance: the ADC achieves 98.3dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and     -123dB THD; improves static and dynamic performance; guarantees monotonic     function; and provides best-in-class power consumption.   oVersatility: the SAR ADC delivers high 20-bit resolution with no missing     codes, at 1.6Msps of speed, at 9mW of power, enabling flexibility in     designs without compromises.   oSimplified designs: the MAX11905 integrates internal reference buffers,     reducing design time and cost.  Commentary    o"In the past, engineers used 24-bit delta-sigma ADCs to achieve fast     acquisition with low noise and distortion," said Carmelo Morello, Senior     Business Manager at Maxim Integrated. "With the MAX11905 SAR ADC, you can     reach ultra-low-noise, ultra-low THD with low offset and gain drift, but     now at less than 1/10 the power consumption and no settling time     limitations."   o"We need very high precision and ultra-low power in portable applications,     especially in the industrial and medical markets," said Susie Inouye,     Research Director at Databeans. "Products that merge these benefits will     propel the next generation of portable devices."  Availability and Pricing    oAvailable in a 20-pin, 4mm x 4mm TQFN package.   oSpecified over the -40-degree Celsius to +85-degree Celsius temperature     range.   oPricing starts at $33.95 (1000-up, FOB USA).  Hi-res images for the MAX11905 end application and MAX11905 block diagram are available.  About Maxim Integrated At Maxim Integrated, our designs make the world more integrated.
