ADC Silicon IP

A/D Converter Silicon IP

ShortLink has developed several A/D Converters in various topoligies for different applications. The main two series are SAR ADCs for monitoring purposes, and Sigma Delta for higher performance applications. Our high-performance ADCs are typically used for Sensor/MEMS applications and Radio Transceivers.

This page contains information on one of our SAR ADCs with integrated temperature sensor, and some of our latest Sigma Delta ADCs. All our designs are configurable, and can be tailored for different applications.
