Analog Devices` AD9675 octal ultrasound analog front end (AFE) eases system
processing burden while reducing I/O data routing and simplifying design
NORWOOD, Mass.--(Business Wire)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today the AD9675 8-channel
Ultrasound Analog Front End (AFE) with on-chip RF decimator and JESD204B serial
interface, designed for mid- to high-end portable and cart-based medical and
industrial ultrasound systems. The device integrates eight channels of low-noise
amplifier, variable-gain amplifier, anti-aliasing filter, and 14-bit A/D
converter with the industry`s highest sample rate (125 MSPS) and best SNR
(signal-to-noise ratio) performance (75 dB) for enhanced ultrasound image
quality. The on-chip RF decimator enables the ADC to be oversampled providing
increased SNR for improved image quality while maintaining lower data I/O rates.
The 5-Gbps JESD204B serial interface reduces ultrasound system I/O data routing
compared to other data interface standards by as much as 80%. These features
simplify ultrasound board design, while better addressing industry demand for
higher data rates, larger channel counts and greater image resolution. A second
model, the AD9674, offers the same basic functionality but is available with
standard LVDS interface. The AD9675 and AD9674 are the latest additions to
Analog Devices` award-winning octal ultrasound receiver portfolio.

The AD9675 and AD9674 are available in a space-saving 144-ball, 10 mm x 10 mm
BGA package and are pin compatible with the AD9670/AD9671, providing easy
migration for those designs that require a reduced cost and limited digital
