MTCA Digitizers and RTMs, Downconversion versus Direct Sampling
Enhancements of the SIS8300 10 channel 125 MSPS 16-bit AMC digitzer resulting in the SIS8300-L2 design will be presented. The status of the 250 MSPS 16-bit SIS8325 MTCA.4 digitizer will be addressed. Both the SIS8300 family and the SIS8325 can be used with Downconverter and direct sampling RTMs to cover a range of frequencies and applications. Possible future developments comprise a 1.6/3.2 GSPS 12-bit and a 1 GSPS 14-bit design for high speed direct sampling for current transformer readout and a variety other applications.
