The AD7671 is a 16-bit, 1 MSPS, charge redistribution SAR, analog-to-digital converter that operates from a single 5 V power supply. It contains a high speed 16-bit sampling ADC, a resistor input scaler that allows various input ranges, an internal conversion clock, error correction circuits, and both serial and parallel system interface ports.
The AD7671 is hardware factory-calibrated and is comprehensively tested to ensure such ac parameters as signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and total harmonic distortion (THD), in addition to the more traditional dc parameters of gain, offset, and linearity.
It features a very high sampling rate mode (Warp), a fast mode (Normal) for asynchronous conversion rate applications, and, for low power applications, a reduced power mode (Impulse) where the power is scaled with the throughput.
It is fabricated using Analog Devices’ high performance, 0.6 micron CMOS process and is available in a 48-lead LQFP and a tiny 48-lead LFCSP, with operation specified from –40°C to +85°C.
