High Speed ADC reference design needed

I am looking for ideas on the choice of High Speed ADC to use for the following application.

Maybe there may be some reference design I could modify.


Development of a Microwave DownConvertor, who's IF is approx 1->8MHz range.

I want to sample the IF output and measure its noise performance.

There are 4 DownConvetors in the system.


Looking at a 16bit ADC with input range of 5v. Plan to Mux the 4 DownConvertors to the ADC.

(Not sure if it is possible to get a 16bit ADC with 4 channel to meet the requirements)


Would also need a low noise clock for the ADC. Recommendations welcomed.

Recommended LDO's for both the Clock and ADC.



System will be controlled using an FPGA.


If you need more details, please let me know.



Kind Regards,
