Hi,

what is the ADC saturation signal strength of AD9864 at normal working conditions.?

• Hello,

The minimum signal that ADC can handle depends on the ADC's Noise Figure at Minimum attenuation that sets the noise floor of the ADC (relative to dBm/Hz), the required minimum CNR to demodulate signal, and the BW of the Signal.

For example, if the AD9864 as a NF=7.5 dB at min. attenuation and is demodulating a signal that is 10 KHz in bandwidth with a CNRmin=10 dB than the minimum signal is  -126.5 dBm  (=-174 dBm+10*log(10^3)+7.5+10 dB).

With regard to AGC setting, the AGC is reacting to rms power of the input signal thus the setting should take into consideration the pk-to-rms of the signal (or blocker) and set the threshold of the AGC accordingly.
