This 99-page handbook provides information on A-to-D markets and technology, sampling and filtering techniques, FPGA technology, optical resources, complementary products and applications. Markets for high-speed A/D converters are significant in size and many are growing rapidly. New markets emerge regularly based on A/D technology advances, lower costs, and the general trend of replacing older mechanical and analog systems with DSP systems. DSP offers significant advantages for handling signal complexity, communications security, improved accuracy and reliability, reduced size, weight and power. Commercial users of high-speed A/Ds include wireless mobile communication systems, airline radar systems, air traffic control towers, ship communications, and wireless networks for home, office and public facilities.
