December 13, 2011 -- e2v and SP Devices today announced their collaboration in the provision of high-performance Analogue-to-Digital (ADC) solutions. With the unique combination of the market’s fastest 12-bit ADC core speed from e2v, and cutting-edge digital post-processing technology from SP Devices, system designers now have access to never before seen ADC solutions.
This new resource is offered following market demand for more complete joined-up services to design teams. This solution from e2v and SP Devices provides an all-European ADC capability to deliver against designers’ exacting requirements across a number of industries including test & measurement, military, and communications.
As an example, with their recently released EV12AS200, a 1.5 GSPS 12-bit ADC, e2v is introducing a true single-core device that, when combined with SP Devices ADX4 time-interleaving technology, enables 12-bit resolution at an unprecedented 6 GSPS.
“We are very excited about this collaboration with e2v”, said Ulrik Lindblad, co-founder of SP Devices. “The combination of SP Devices’ time-interleaving and linearization technology with e2v’s impressive high-performance ADCs offers customers the ability to grow their business, stay ahead of competition, and enter new exciting markets.”
“SP Devices’ performance enhancing technologies and digitizers are well recognized in the industry,” said Nicolas Chantier, Product Marketing Manager for e2v’s broadband data converter group, adding “The key to achieving genuine performance breakthroughs in terms of resolution and sampling rate is precisely this unique combination of technology from e2v and SP Devices. Customers can now benefit from the coordinated support of both companies to reach the highest possible performance levels.”
