The AD9221, AD9223, and AD9220 are a generation of high
performance, single supply 12-bit analog-to-digital converters.
Each device exhibits true 12-bit linearity and temperature drift
performance1 as well as 11.5-bit or better ac performance.2 The
AD9221/AD9223/AD9220 share the same interface options,
package, and pinout. Thus, the product family provides an upward
or downward component selection path based on performance,
sample rate and power. The devices differ with respect to their
specified sampling rate, and power consumption, which is reflected
in their dynamic performance over frequency.
The AD9221/AD9223/AD9220 combine a low cost, high speed
CMOS process and a novel architecture to achieve the resolution
and speed of existing hybrid and monolithic implementations at
a fraction of the power consumption and cost. Each device is a
complete, monolithic ADC with an on-chip, high performance,
low noise sample-and-hold amplifier and programmable voltage
reference. An external reference can also be chosen to suit the
dc accuracy and temperature drift requirements of the application.
The devices use a multistage differential pipelined architecture
with digital output error correction logic to provide 12-bit accu-
racy at the specified data rates and to guarantee no missing
codes over the full operating temperature range.
The input of the AD9221/AD9223/AD9220 is highly flexible,
allowing for easy interfacing to imaging, communications, medi-
cal, and data-acquisition systems. A truly differential input
structure allows for both single-ended and differential input
interfaces of varying input spans. The sample-and-hold

amplifier (SHA) is equally suited for both multiplexed sys-
tems that switch full-scale voltage levels in successive channels
as well as sampling single-channel inputs at frequencies up to
and beyond the Nyquist rate. Also, the AD9221/AD9223/AD9220
is well suited for communication systems employing Direct-
IF down conversion since the SHA in the differential input
mode can achieve excellent dynamic performance far beyond its
specified Nyquist frequency.2
A single clock input is used to control all internal conversion
cycles. The digital output data is presented in straight binary
output format. An out-of-range (OTR) signal indicates an over-
flow condition that can be used with the most significant bit to
determine low or high overflow.
The AD9221/AD9223/AD9220 family offers a complete single-
chip sampling 12-bit, analog-to-digital conversion function in
pin compatible 28-lead SOIC and SSOP packages.
Flexible Sampling Rates—The AD9221, AD9223, and AD9220
offer sampling rates of 1.5 MSPS, 3.0 MSPS, and 10.0 MSPS,
Low Power and Single Supply—The AD9221, AD9223, and
AD9220 consume only 59 mW, 100 mW, and 250 mW, respec-
tively, on a single 5 V power supply.
Excellent DC Performance Over Temperature—The AD9221/
AD9223/AD9220 provide 12-bit linearity and temperature drift
Excellent AC Performance and Low Noise—The AD9221/
AD9223/AD9220 provide better than 11.3 ENOB performance
and have an input referred noise of 0.09 LSB rms.2
Flexible Analog Input Range—The versatile on-board sample-
and-hold (SHA) can be configured for either single-ended or
differential inputs of varying input spans.
