NXP has announced that its latest high-speed data converters support the new JEDEC JESD204A serial interface standard.

The JEDEC-based data converters include two ADCsthe 12bit ADC1213Dxx and 14bit ADD1413Dxxand a DAC, the DAC1408D650.

The ADCs operate at sampling speeds of 65-, 80-, 105- and 125MSps. Other ADC specs include SNR: 73dB typical, SFDR: 90dBc typical. For the DAC, the output rate is 650MSps and includes a 32bit numerically controlled oscillator frequency synthesizer.

NXP's JEDEC-based data converters are fully interoperable with cost-effective FPGAs from Lattice, Altera and Xilinx. They are targeted at cellular base stations, medical imaging equipment, high-speed instrumentation, video broadcast equipment, and military data acquisition applications.

The JEDEC JESD204A interface typically uses six interconnect signals for a 14bit dual-channel data converter, nearly an 80 percent reduction compared to a parallel interface that typically consumes 28 interconnect signals. The JEDEC JESD204A interface also provides higher interconnect signal integrity, single-bit error detection, and enables system performance scalability without PCB design changes.

Samples of NXP's JESD204A data converters are now available with lead customers. Commercial samples will be available to the broader market from Q3 09.
