With 14 bits and 10 GSPS, ADQ7DC improves the resolution in high-sampling rate applications beyond what was previously possible. This performance-boost has effectively helped our customers overcome performance trade-offs and have led to significant advances in many applications. ADQ7DC can be operated in either single- or dual-channel mode with 10 or 5 GSPS sampling rate respectively.

The DC-coupled front-end supports variable DC-offset and contains a user-programmable digital noise-reduction filter. It also offers 3 GHz analog input bandwidth and therefore supports a wide range of sensors and applications.

Stand-alone firmware packages simplify operation and offer time-savings by providing a rich set of real-time application-specific functions without any need for FPGA firmware development.
