Based on a 28 nm CMOS process, the AD9208 dual 14 bit ADC from Analog Devices enables IF sampling of signals at up to 9 GHz (-3 dB point). The AD9208 meets the increased spectral efficiency demands of 4G/5G multiband wireless communication base stations. It provides low-noise spectral density for diversity radio and I/Q modulation systems, while consuming half the power of alternative devices, according to the manufacturer.

With sampling speeds of up to 3 Gsamples/s, the converter facilitates direct RF signal-processing architectures and delivers high oversampling.
