The ADC resolution also affects how closely the digital number resembles the analogue value. One part in 4,096, where 212 = 4,096, is the resolution of the ADC. A 12-bit ADC can therefore resolve the measurement into 10 VDC/4096 = 0.00244 VDC = 2.44 mV with a maximum input of 10 VDC.
An analog-to-digital converter in electronics is a device that transforms analogue signals into digital signals, such as sound captured by a microphone or light entering a digital camera. An electrical device that transforms an analogue input voltage or current into a digital number reflecting the magnitude of the voltage or current is an example of an ADC that can offer an isolated measurement.
Although there are alternative options, the typical digital output is a two’s complement binary value that is proportionate to the input. ADC architectures come in different forms. All but the most specialised ADCs are constructed as integrated circuits because to the complexity and requirement for perfectly matched components.
They often take the shape of mixed-signal integrated circuit chips made of metal-oxide-semiconductors, which merge analogue and digital circuits.
The Global programmable 12-bit ADC market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
National Semiconductor Inc. launched the fastest 12-bit analog-to-digital converter in the market. The ADC12D1800 is 3.6 Giga-samples per second quicker than any other 12-bit device on the market.
A new generation of software-defined radio architectures and applications are made possible by the ADC’s dynamic performance of -147 dBm/Hz noise floor, 52 dB noise power ratio, and -61 dBFS intermodulation distortion.
In addition to the ADC12D1800, National also unveiled the ADC12D1600 and ADC12D1000, two further members of their ultra high-speed ADC family with performance up to 3.2 GSPS and 2.0 GSPS, respectively.
Wideband SDR applications such as radar, telecommunication, multi-channel set-top boxes, signal intelligence, and light detecting and ranging are all targeted by the three PowerWise® ADCs. The ADC12D1x00 series from National has the capacity to precisely receive modulated, band-limited signals within a wide bandwidth, enabling the realisation of completely new SDR architectures.
A single ADC12D1X00 and a digital down-converter, for instance, can replace numerous mixers, filters, amplifiers, and local oscillator stages used in conventional heterodyne double- or triple-conversion radio implementations in military radar systems.
