San Diego, CA - Maxwell Technologies, Inc. introduces the 9042 12-Bit monolithic analog-to-digital converter microcircuit, featuring a greater than 100 krad (Si) total dose tolerance. Using Maxwell's radiation-hardened RAD-PAK® packaging technology, the 9042 realizes a higher performance, and low power consumption. All necessary functions including track-and-hold (T/H) and reference are included on chip to provide a complete conversion solution.
"Maxwell's 9042 is the first space qualified converter specifically designed with a wideband front end, addressing the needs of multichannel receivers" said Larry Longden, Director of Product Development for Maxwell. "In addition, the 9042 takes advantage of advanced architecture and processes to provide excellent dynamic linearity performance," he continued.
The 9042 runs off of a single +5V supply and provides CMOS-compatible digital outputs at 41 MSPS. Designed specifically to address the needs of wideband, multichannel receivers, the 9042 maintains 80 dB spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) over a bandwidth of 20 MHz. Noise performance is also exceptional, with typical signal-to-noise ratio of 68 dB.
The 9042 comes in a 28-Pin RAD-PAK® Flat Package, and is available with screening up to Class S. The product utilizes Maxwell Technologies' patented RAD-PAK® packaging technology, which incorporates radiation shielding in the microcircuit package. The process eliminates the need for box shielding while providing the required radiation shielding for a lifetime in orbit.
