June 17, 2021 by Mouser Electronics

This Featured Product Spotlight is part of a video series exploring the specifications, applications, and market context of new products.


Analog Devices Inc. AD9081 MxFE® Quad ADCs are highly integrated mixed-signal front-end devices with four 16-bit RF digital-to-analog converter (DAC) cores with a 12GSPS maximum sample rate as well as four 12-bit RF analog-to-digital converter (ADC) cores with a  4GSPS rate.

With the  AD9081, embedded digital-signal-processing (DSP) functions are on-chip so that the user can configure the programmable filters and digital up- and down-conversion blocks to meet specific radio-signal bandwidth requirements. 

This device has flexible interpolation and decimation configurations that enable direct-to-RF multiband radio applications. A bypassable interpolator and decimator allow the user to achieve ultrawideband capability with low-latency digital loopback and fast frequency hopping modes for phased array radar systems and electronic warfare jammer applications. 

Finally, the AD9081 includes power amplifier downstream protection circuitry, an on-chip temperature sensor, programmable GPIO pins, an ADC clock driver, a TDD power savings option and comes in a small 15 mm × 15 mm BGA package with 0.8 mm pitch.
