The World’s first C-band capable ADC

The EV12AD500 offers C-band signal digitization with a -3dB input bandwidth at 5GHz and includes the same chain synchronization feature as found in the EV12AD550 and features two interface options, parallel and serial.

  • Customers that operate the EV12AD500 with the parallel interface will benefit from a latency of 7n/s.
  • Serial interface users will have access to the embedded, highly efficient, open source protocol ESIstream.
