M31 proposes the concept of “Modular ADC” based design in data converters and the AFEs. Every single analog macro is well planned and intentionally designed as module for vast application needs, achieving optimal trade-offs between performance (P), power (P), and area (A). M31 provides ADC that is highly configurable, thus retrieving voltage or current after the transducer or the very first front-end. Meanwhile, inherent filter and programmable gain adjustment relax the design of preceding stages.
Enriched data converter IP portfolios cover wide-range specifications including:
1) Nyquist-Rate ADCs of resolution from 8-bit to 12-bit with sampling rate from several tens of kHz to several hundreds of MHz, targeting for measurement, general purposes wireline, and wireless applications;
2) Oversampling (Continuous-Time or Discrete-Time) Delta-Sigma ADCs of resolution from 12-bit to 16-bit with bandwidth from several hundreds of Hz to hundreds of MHz, targeting for instrumentation, biopotential toward mobile (LTE) applications.
