ADI's latest SAR ADCs simplify the often complex process of designing ADCs into instrumentation, industrial and healthcare applications.
Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) has introduced a new portfolio of next-generation 16-to-24-bit, ultra-high precision successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that simplify the often complex process of designing ADCs into instrumentation, industrial and healthcare applications.
The new high-performance SAR ADC family features ADI’s patented Easy Drive technology and versatile Flexi-SPI serial peripheral interface (SPI) that solve system design challenges and broaden the selection of directly compatible companion products.
ADI’s Easy Drive technology maintains device performance while eliminating many traditional system-level design challenges such as strict layout guidelines, rigid digital interface timing requirements, and the complicated selection of companion products. The versatile Flexi-SPI digital interface eases host processor and ADC integration by providing easy-to-meet timing requirements. The combination of high performance with this reimagined digital interface provides a better overall design experience while also accelerating the system design cycle.
First in the pin-compatible SAR ADC family of six, the 24-bit dual-channel, simultaneous sampling, two Megasamples (Msps) per second per channel AD4630-24 features an industry leading accuracy (INL) rating of 0.9 parts per million (ppm), which is a 4x improvement when compared to others. The AD4630-24 integrates a reference buffer and all critical decoupling components into a single chip, providing a 2x improvement in solution density when compared with others.
The dual channel AD4630-24 and single channel AD4030-24 are available now and the additional four SAR ADCs will launch throughout this year.
