Joined-up thinking on ADCs

Market demand for joined-up services has prompted e2v and SP Devices to collaborate in providing analogue-to-digital (ADC) solutions. The partnership combines 12-bit ADC core speeds from e2v and digital post-processing technology from SP Devices. This provides an all-European ADC capability across industries including test and measurement, military and communications.

As an example, e2v’s single-core EV12AS200 1.5GSPS 12-bit ADC can be combined with SP Devices ADX4 time-interleaving technology, to provide 12-bit resolution at 6.0GSPS.

Co-founder of SP Devices, Ulrik Lindblad, said: “The combination of SP Devices’ time-interleaving and linearisation technology with e2v’s high-performance ADCs helps customers stay ahead of competition and enter new markets.”
