Description

This reference design shows a quad channel, 14-bit, 250-Msps digitizer with wide input range using the LMH6881 programmable differential amplifier and ADS4449 quad-channel, 14-bit, 250-Msps ADC. This combination allows an input voltage range of approximately 1 Vpp to 100 uVpp (4 dBm to -75 dBm) while maintaining a minimum SNR of 6 dB. Performance versus input frequency is shown for both AC and DC coupled applications. Various options for common-mode voltages, power supplies, and interfaces are discussed and measured to meet the requirements of a variety of applications. Anti-aliasing filter examples are shown along with the performance improvements that they provide.

Features
  • Gain range of 6-dB to 26-dB allows wide input voltage range of 100 uVpp to 1 Vpp
  • Allows single-ended or differential input source
  • SFDR > 77 dBFs, SNR > 71 dBFS
  • Examples of both AC and DC coupled interfaces
  • Demonstrates anti-aliasing filter design and performance gains
  • Common mode voltage considerations for best performance are discussed
