Block Diagram

The original ADC12QJ1600-Q1 Rev A evaluation module used several SMPS with LDO followers to provide power to the ADC and clock rails. The 3.3 V clock rails require low phase noise and low jitter. The 1.1 V analog rail (VA11) and digital rail (VD11) are supplied through one LDO and each rail is split with a feed through filter capacitor to ensure low noise requirements for both analog and digital rails. The 1.9 V supplies are also supplied through one LDO with each rail having a split that connects to a feed through filter capacitor as shown in Figure 1-4.

In the revised design, the LDOs are removed and the TPS62913 low-ripple, low-noise SMPS is used instead. This design presents a simplified power supply network for the ADC, where all three power domains are supplied from a DC/DC regulator as shown in Figure 1-6. This implementation improves the efficiency and reduces the part count in comparison to a solution using LDOs while maintaining the output voltage ripple and noise requirements of the ADC and clock for good performance.
