Complete Monolithic 8-Bit, 10-µs A/D Converter

AD670 is Fully μP-Compatible, Accepts Low-Level Differential Analog Signals; Completely Self-Contained, It Operates from +5-Volt Computer Supplies

The AD670 "ADCPORT", the near-ideal 8-bit ADC, is a complete, microprocessor-compatible easy-to-use a/d converter on a single monolithic chip. A successive-approximation device, it contains its own buffer amplifier, voltage reference, d/a converter, latching comparator, successive-approximation register, 3-state output latches, and control logic.
