The A8B40G is a low-power, high-speed analog to digital converter (ADC) intellectual property (IP) design block. It is a time-interleaved successive approximation register (SAR) ADC, with 8-bit resolution and a sampling rate of 40 gigasamples per second (GSPS).
It is a unique solution that provides the dual benefit of reaching an extremely high sampling speed, while maintaining an exceptionally low power consumption of approximately 194 mW.
The cost-effective IP block is has been designed and verified for 22FDX FDSOI processes and is undergoing porting for upcoming tapeout. The ADC IP is also available in a radiation-tolerant version, that can function under harsh environmental constraints, and support demanding reliability and survivability needs.
