15Msps, 18-Bit No Latency SAR ADC Provides 20dB SNR Improvement over Pipelined ADCs

Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC2387-18, an ultrafast 15Msps, 18-bit successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with no cycle latency and no pipeline delay. The LTC2387-18 digitizes wideband analog signals up to the Nyquist frequency with very low distortion. Applications ranging from communications, high speed imaging and instrumentation that traditionally utilize fast throughput pipelined ADCs can now achieve 20dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement compared to pipelined ADC architectures.
