The ADuCM360 is a fully integrated, 4 kSPS, 24-bit data acquisition system incorporating dual, high performance multi-channel sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), 32-bit ARM Cortex M3® MCU, and Flash/EE memory on a single chip. The part is designed for direct interfacing to external precision sensors in both wired and battery powered applications.
The ADuCM361 contains all the features of the ADuCM360 except the primary ADC, ADC0 is not available – only the auxiliary ADC, ADC1 is available.
The device contains an on-chip 32 KHz oscillator and an internal 16MHz high-frequency oscillator. This clock is routed through a programmable clock divider from which the MCU core clock operating frequency is generated. The maximum core clock speed is 16MHz and this is not limited by operating voltage or temperature.
The microcontroller core is a low power Cortex-M3 core from ARM. It is a 32-bit RISC machine, offering up to 20 MIPS peak performance. The Cortex-M3 MCU incorporates a flexible 11-channel DMA controller supporting all wired (SPI, UART, I2C) communication peripherals. 128k Bytes of non-volatile Flash/EE and 8k Bytes of SRAM are also integrated on-chip.
The Analog sub-system consists of dual ADCs each connected to a flexible input MUX. Both ADCs can operate in fully differential and single ended modes. Other on-chip ADC features include dual programmable excitation current sources, burn-out current sources and a bias voltage generator of AVDD_REG/2 (900mV) to set the common-mode voltage of an input channel. A low-side internal ground switch is provided to allow powering down of a bridge between conversions. The ADCs contain two parallel filters – a Sinc3 or Sinc4 in parallel with a Sinc2. The Sinc3 or Sinc4 filter is for precision measurements. The Sinc2 filter is for fast measurements and for detection of step changes in the input signal The device also contains a low noise, low drift internal band-gap reference or can be configured to accept up to 2 external reference sources in ratiometric measurement configurations. An option to buffer the external reference inputs is also provided on-chip. A single-channel buffered voltage output DAC is also provided on chip. The ADuCM360/ADuCM361 also integrates a range of on-chip peripherals which can be configured under microcontroller software control as required in the application. These peripherals include UART, I2C and dual SPI Serial I/O communication controllers, 19-Pin GPIO Ports, 2 General Purpose Timers, Wake-up Timer and System Watchdog Timer. A 16-bit PWM with six output channels is also provided.
The ADuCM360/ADuCM361 is specifically designed to operate in battery powered applications where low power operation is critical. The microcontroller core can be configured in a normal operating mode consuming 290μA/MHz (including Flash/SRAM Idd) resulting in an overall system current consumption of 1mA when all peripherals are active.
The part can also be configured in a number of low power operating modes under direct program control, including hibernate mode (internal wake-up timer active) consuming only 4μA. In hibernate mode, peripherals such as external interrupts or the internal wake up timer can wake up the device. This allows the part to operate in an ultra-low power operating mode and still respond to asynchronous external or periodic events.
On-chip factory firmware supports in-circuit serial download via a serial wire interface (2-pin JTAG system) and UART while non-intrusive emulation is also supported via the serial wire interface. These features are incorporated into a low-cost QuickStart Development System supporting this Precision Analog Microcontroller family.
