The 16-bit device delivers a sampling rate to 1 Msamples/s, consuming 7.5 mW at the maximum rate. It specifies a 2-LSB maximum INL and 91.5-dB SNR at 20 kHz and is available in LFCSP/QFN and MSOP packages that, respectively, are five and three times smaller than similar a/d converter packages. In addition, the AD7980 is pin-compatible with the AD768x MSOP family of 16-bit PulSAR converters. Price is $19.50 each/1,000. ANALOG DEVICES INC., Norwood, MA. (800) 262-5643.
