Rugged, rad-hard 10-bit A/D converter introduced by DATEL for aerospace and defense uses
MANSFIELD, Mass., 7 April 2014. The DATEL Business Unit of Murata Power Solutions in Mansfield, Mass., is introducing the ADS-1011 series analog-to-digital (A/D) converters in hermetically sealed ceramic packages for aerospace and defense applications.
The A/D converters offer 10-bit resolution, serial output, low power, and the ability not only to withstand as much as 30 kilorads of total-dose radiation, but also operate in military temperature ranges.
Each unit features guaranteed no missing codes and is 100 percent tested for performance across one of three standard temperature ranges: 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, -40 to 100 C, and -55 to 125 C.
The ADS-1011 can run from power supplies ranging from 2.7 volts to 5.5 volts. The power electronics device has a sample-hold, successive approximation A/D converter, and high speed microprocessor-compatible serial data transfer, while consuming less than 10 milliwatts of power at 250 kHz throughput.
The ADS-1011 features 60 dB of SNR and -65 dB of total harmonic distortion, and is manufactured in DATEL's U.S. facility, which is certified to MIL-PRF-38534 standards.
The device is available in commercial as well as military/high-reliability versions. RoHS and non-RoHS versions are available. For more information contact DATEL online at www.datel.com.
