The Intersil is a CMOS parallel (FLASH) analog-todigital converter designed for applications demanding both low-power consumption and high speed digitization. Digitizing at 25MHz, for example, requires only about 35mW. The CA3304 operates over a wide, full-scale signal input voltage range up to the supply voltage. Power consumption is as low as 10mW, depending upon the clock frequency selected. The intrinsic high conversion rate makes the CA3304 types ideally suited for digitizing high speed signals. The overflow bit makes possible the connection of two or more CA3304s in series to increase the resolution of the conversion system. A series connection of two CA3304s may be used to produce 5-bit, 25MHz converter. Operation of two CA3304s in parallel doubles the conversion speed (i.e., increases the sampling rate from 50MHz). A data change pin indicates when the present output differs from the previous, thus allowing compaction of data storage. Sixteen paralleled auto-balanced voltage comparators measure the input voltage with respect to a known reference to produce the parallel-bit outputs in the CA3304. Fifteen comparators are required to quantize all input voltage levels in this 4-bit converter, and the additional comparator is required for the overflow bit.

1. Full scale input range, VREF + - VREF may be in the range 0.5V to VAA+ -VAA- volts. Linearity errors increase at lower full scale ranges, however. 2. Input current is due to energy transferred to the input at the start of the sample period. The average value is dependent on input and VDD voltage. 3. The CLK input is a CMOS inverter with a 50k feedback resistor. It operates from the VAA+ and VAA- supplies. It may be AC-coupled with a 1VP-P minimum source. 4. Parameter not tested, but guaranteed by design or characterization.
