High-Performance GSPS Data Converters Improve RADAR and EW Architectures

July 30, 2014, 12:00 noon EDT -- In recent years gigasample per second ADCs have been pushing the data conversion stage closer and closer to the antenna. But when analog bandwidths reach 1-2 GHz, in many cases the dynamic AC performance of current GSPS ADCs is severely limited by the linearity and noise spectral density of the converter. In this webinar, we'll discuss the advantages of going to new improved GSPS converters and the impact on Radar and Electronic Warfare systems.
