Track 2
This work presents some of the latest advances in photonic aided Analog to Digital converter. The most critical photonic components for this application has been evaluated for possible architecture solutions.

As a general-purpose technology approach for Digital Receivers development, this solution is applicable for multiple EW System Architecture solutions.

The latest advances in silicon electronic for ADC technology has increased analog bandwidth and digitization speed for conventional ADCs. This fact is a challenge for photonics technology and also an opportunity to improve possible solutions.

New system architectures need to consider possible advances in booths technologies together and plan flexible solutions able to take advantage of both.
