Texas Instruments announced the ADS5263 quad-channel, 16-bit analog-to-digital converter. The ADS5263 ADC features a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 84.6 dBFS with 10-MHz input and a sampling frequency of up to 100 MSPS. The TI ADS5263 is available now in two 9-mm x 9-mm QFN package options. The regular package for applications without a magnetic field is priced at $236.50 (quantities of 1,000). The non-magnetic package option for applications with a magnetic field is priced at $385.50 (quantities of 1,000). The ADC is ideal for medical imaging applications.
Microchip Technology introduced the 8-bit PIC18F87J72 microcontroller (MCU) family. The PIC18F87J72 microcontrollers feature a dual-channel 16-/24-bit Analog Front End (AFE), 64 or 128 KB Flash program memory, 4 KB RAM, LCD driver, hardware Real-Time Clock/Calendar (RTCC), and a Charge-Time Measurement Unit (CTMU). The new Microchip MCU devices are ideal for single-phase, multi-function smart-metering and energy-monitoring applications. The PIC18F87J72 is available now for $3.93 each in 10,000-unit quantities for 64 KB Flash program memory.
Texas Instruments announced the ADS4149 high-speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The ADS4149 features ultra-low power consumption and excellent dynamic performance across wide signal bandwidths from DC up to 550 MHz. The ADS4149 and companion single configuration parts are available today in a 48-pin QFN package. The ADS4149 is priced at $89 in 1,000-unit quantities. Multi-channel options will be available in 1H2010.
