Fast 16-Bit 1.5Msps/Channel Octal Simultaneous Sampling SAR ADC Maintains AC Performance

Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC2320-16, a 16-bit 1.5Msps per channel, no latency successive approximation register (SAR) ADC with eight simultaneously sampling channels supporting a rail-to-rail input common mode range. The LTC2320-16 features a flexible analog front end that accepts fully differential, unipolar or bipolar analog input signals, as well as arbitrary input signals, and maintains an 82dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and high common mode rejection ratio (CMRR) of 102dB, when sampling input signals up to the Nyquist frequency.
