Analog Devices introduced a current-to-digital converter module that reduces the cost and complexity of computed tomography (CT) scanner system design. The ADAS1131 is a 256-channel, 24-bit current-to-digital converter module that is available in a 15-mm² BGA package with a 0.8-mm pitch.
The device uses approximately 33 percent less PCB area than alternative devices that offer only half the channel density. The 0.8-mm pitch-packaging feature enables designers to mount the ADAS1131 on a standard PCB substrate, a less costly and higher yield option than high density, specialized PCB substrates requiring laser vias.
