Analog-to-Digital Converter

This digital communications company worked on the design of an 80 MSPS analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for two years. Unfortunately, the initial design did not meet specifications, as the device suffered from poor layout, bad device matching, and limited accuracy to 8 bits due to noise issues.

iSine engineers took charge of the project, dedicating four months to improve device matching, reduce crosstalk, optimize device sizing, and add substrate isolation.

This rapid turnaround by iSine stood in stark contrast to the customer’s 48-month effort. The ADC achieved an impressive 13-bit accuracy in the 80 MSPS design, showcasing iSine’s capabilities and expertise in analog design services.
