The ever-present need for higher bandwidth and lower size, weight, and power (SWaP) in electronic warfare (EW) receivers has EW system designers continually looking for new developments and improvements in high speed analog-to-digital converter (ADC) technology. While 65 nm ADCs approach their inherent, process-related performance and bandwidth limitations, new 28 nm RF ADCs surpass these boundaries and form a new foundation for next-generation wideband receiver systems. Download the full white paper to learn more on how 28 nm ADC enable faster sample rates, wider analog input bandwidth, integrated digital functionality, and new receiver architectures, all while reducing power consumption and overall size.
