Samplify Rolls Production Quantities of Its SAM1600 Analog/Digital Converters with Real-Time Data Compression
Date:3/30/2009

World's lowest-power, highest channel-count 12-bit ADC reduces I/O pin count and power consumption for high-bandwidth applications

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Samplify Systems, a provider of mixed-signal compression solutions for intelligent data conversion, today ramps production of its innovative family of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) integrated with the company's compression technology. Developed to solve high-speed signal-processing bottlenecks, the SAM1600 ADCs have achieved production qualification on UMC's 130 nm bulk CMOS process.

"I am extremely proud of the Samplify team for the smooth transition of the SAM1600 family devices into production," said Tom Sparkman, Samplify CEO. "Qualifying devices for production can trip up even the largest semiconductor companies, yet our team was able to go from sampling to production qualification without any changes to the die, an amazing feat considering having a high level of digital integration and having twice the number of ADC channels of competing devices."

The SAM1600 family delivers industry-leading power consumption in a true 16-channel, 12-bit device, and just 44 mW per channel power consumption. The performance of the SAM1600 family is further enhanced by the integration of Samplify's patented Prism(TM) data compression technology, which reduces the number of LVDS I/O pairs, and thereby the power they consume, by up to 75 percent for high-channel density applications such as ultrasound front-ends, 4G wireless base stations, wireless repeaters, automated test equipment (ATE), and RADAR/SONAR receivers. More information about the SAM1600 family can be found at http://www.samplify.com/sam1600.php.

"The SAM1600 family has already achieved design-ins with five customers," says Horace Lai, VP of Technical Marketing for Cytech Ltd., Hong Kong, distributor for Samplify. "With Samplify's world-class support, our customers were able, for the first time, to measure performance which actually matched the data sheet."

"Though we have only been partnered with Samplify for a short time, we have already been able to achieve design-ins for the SAM1600 with three of our OEM customers," added Samuel Ge, VP of Field Applications for Excelpoint in Shanghai, China. "Achieving production qualification is an important milestone for our customers in the medical imaging and wireless infrastructure markets."

Pricing

Pricing for the SAM1610, SAM1605, and SAM1600 is $79.00, $39.50, and $64.00 in 1K quantities, respectively. Customers using any SAM16xx family devices receive a royalty-free license to Samplify's Prism(TM) decompression FPGA IP or software. A complete ADC evaluation board with data analysis software is also available now for $1,995.00.

Samplify will exhibit its SAM1600 family March 31- April 2 during the Embedded Systems Conference, Booth 2131, at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.
