E2V - ADC Wins Prestigious Industry ACE award

E2V Technologies : 30 May, 2007  (Company News)
e2v has won a prestigious industry ACE award (Annual Creativity in Electronics) at the EE Times gala celebration held in San Jose, California for its 12-bit 500 Msps (million samples per second) analogue-to-digital converter (ADC).
The EE Times ACE Awards were created to recognise the people, companies and products that show leadership in the electronics industry, honoring those who are leading the way and making positive contributions, the real innovators of technology. Finalists were evaluated by a prestigious panel of judges, comprised of the leading voices of academia, industry and Wall Street executives.

The AT84AS001TP is a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) that can provide 500 Msps data conversion from a single monolithic chip. This breakthrough in ADC design allows system designers to accurately digitise intermediate frequency (IF) signals with frequencies up to 500 MHz at twice the sampling rate of conventional 12-bit ADCs. Thanks to the high-speed silicon technology and proprietary chip architecture used in the AT84AS001TPY Series ADC, a new 12-bit ADC standard has been set without any compromise on power consumption, dynamic range or linearity.

The range of applications for the AT84AS001TP ADC covers telecommunication infrastructure, high IF broadband digital receivers, test and measurement equipment, high-speed data acquisition and defence radar and communications systems.

'e2v received the ACE Award because they kicked off the new high-resolution family with a monolithic, 12-bit, analog-to-digital (A/D) converter boasting a clock frequency of 500 Msamples/s making it a great leap forward in high speed A/D,' commented Brian Fuller, editor in chief of EE Times.

'e2v's is happy to bring this unique solution to leading designers in the world working on products and applications commanding very high analogue to digital throughput and resolution levels' said Christian Olivier, General Manager of the Advanced Imaging and Semiconductors division of e2v.

From San Jose where he received the award, Thierry Gouvernel, General Manager of e2v's Broadband Data Converter & Microprocessors Business Unit, commented: 'this award is a great recognition for our experienced design team's achievements in very fast ADCs. They are already working on the next performance challenges in order to keep offering leading-edge specifications to our customers'.
