12-bit quad-channel ADC aims for space applications
Teledyne e2v has released its most advanced ADC to date, the 12-bit EV12AQ600 which features a Cross Point Switch (CPS), allowing the device to operate its four cores simultaneously, independently or paired, to assign its 6 GSps sampling speed across the user’s desired channel count.

Available in a radiation-tolerant version, the device's channels can be operated independently or synchronized, in quad-channel at 1.5 Giga Sample per second (GSps), dual-channel at 3 GSps or single-channel at 6 GSps mode. This makes the EV12AQ600 customizable and suitable for ultra-wideband microwave backhaul systems, data acquisition systems and test and measurement applications. In addition to the multi-channel CPS functionality, the EV12AQ600 contains the proven chain synchronization feature as seen in some of Teledyne e2v’s most recent data converters. This feature allows it to meet the growing trend of increasing channel counts in large phased-array and Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems.

The EV12AQ600 has been designed as part of the INTERSTELLAR project, a consortium led by Teledyne e2v and supported by Thales Alenia Space, Airbus Defence and Space and the Fraunhofer Institute. The project is helping to bridge the gap between the analog RF world and the digital world, by developing the most advanced data converters.
