16-channel VGA with ADC

Recommended alternative parts

  • AFE5801  - The device has the SAME FUNCTIONALITY as the compared device, but is not pin-for-pin equivalent and may not be parametrically equivalent.   Same functionality as AFE5851 with 8-channel and 65 MSPS max channel sample rate.

Description

The AFE5851 is an analog front-end targeting applications where the power and level of integration are critical. The device contains 16 variable gain amplifiers (VGA), followed by an octal high speed (up to 65 MSPS) analog to digital converter (ADC).

Each of the 16 single ended inputs is buffered, accepts up to 1VPP maximum input swing and it is followed by a VGA with a gain range from –5dB to 31dB. The VGA gain is digitally controlled and the gain curves versus time can be stored in memory, integrated within the device using the serial interface.

A selectable clamping and anti-alias low pass filter (with 3dB attenuation at 7.5, 10 or 14MHz) is also integrated between the VGA and ADC for every channel. The VGA/anti-alias filter outputs are differential (limited to 2 VPP) and drive the on-board 12-bit 65MSPS ADC that is shared between two VGAs to optimize the power dissipation. Each VGA output is sampled at alternate clock cycles, making the effective sampling frequency half the input clock rate. The ADC also scales down its power consumption should a lower sampling rate be selected.

The ADC outputs are serialized in LVDS streams further minimizing power and board area. The AFE5851 is available in a 64-pin QFN package (9x9mm2) and is specified over the full industrial temperature range (–40°C to 85°C).
