WOBURN, MA (PRWEB) June 6, 2006
Kenet Inc., a developer of revolutionary low-power analog mixed-signal products, today formally introduced a best-in-class family of 8- and 10-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) products that combine ultra-high performance with extremely low power. The flagship product the KAD2710 sets a new industry standard by operating at sampling rates of 275 million samples per second (MSPS) while saving more than 45% of the power required by currently shipping competitive products. The KAD2710 provides electronic designers and manufacturers the ideal product for meeting the power and portability needs that continue to drive the industry.
Kenet’s KAD2710 ADCs will have a profound impact on the electronics industry, said Phillip LoPresti, Kenets CEO. Data acquisition, portable oscilloscopes, medical imaging, broadband communications and configurable radio systems are just a few of the applications for which this product is tailor-made. The lower power requirements will no doubt help manufacturers develop these cutting-edge products at a significantly lower cost, while maintaining top performance.
Kenet has demonstrated the KAD2710 for several OEMs, one of whom is Link Instruments of Fairfield, NJ, which designs and manufactures PC-based test instruments. We are getting the high performance we need at a power level much lower than the industry has been able to deliver, until now, said John Yeh, president, Link Instruments. We are very excited to be leveraging this new power/performance point that Kenet is launching for the industry.
Kenet developed the KAD2710 using the companys FemtoCharge
