AD9250 wins Analog Product of the Year: JESD204B Converters Simplify FPGA And ASIC Interfacing @ElectronicDesgn

It isn’t unusual for an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) to be Electronic Design ’s Best Analog product of the year, particularly when its performance characteristics are remarkable. Yet in this case, it’s Analog Devices’ deep involvement with the design community, as much as the product’s performance characteristics, that deserve attention. On October 8, ADI announced sampling of the first four ADCs in its JESD204B-compatible High-Speed Data Converter-to-FPGA Interconnect Design Environment products. The ADCs are representative of a new era in which products evolve within a community that works to solve an over-reaching problem. Today, standards drive semiconductor innovation. For example, ADI has worked with high-performance FPGA suppliers such as Xilinx Inc. that have incorporated on-chip JESD204B serializer-deserializer (SERDES) ports into their latest products to pro...
