Differential Input, 1 MSPS, 12- (AD7450A) & 10-Bit (AD7440) ADCs
Manufactured by:

Product Details

The AD7450A/AD7440 are respectively 12- and 10-bit, high speed, low power, successive-approximation (SAR) analog-to-digital converters that feature a fully differential analog input. These parts operate from a single 3 V or 5 V power supply and feature throughput rates up to 1 MSPS.

The parts contains a low-noise, wide bandwidth, differential track and hold amplifier (T/H), which can handle input frequencies in excess of 1 MHz with the –3 dB point being 20 MHz typically. The reference voltage is applied externally to the VREF pin and can be varied from 100 mV to 3.5 V depending on the power supply and what suits the application. The value of the reference voltage determines the common mode voltage range of the part. With this truly differential input structure and variable reference input, the user can select a variety of input ranges and bias points.

Product Details

The EVAL-AD7450ASDZ is a fully featured evaluation kit for the AD7450. This board operates in standalone mode or in conjunction with the System Development Platform, EVAL-SDP-CB1Z . When operated with the System Development Platform software is provided enabling the user to perform detailed analysis of the ADC's performance. This software includes the technical note describing the operation and set up of the evaluation board in standalone operation or when operated with the System Development Platform . When operated in standalone mode the ADZS-BRKOUT-EX3 break out board is recommended for access to various control pins.

This board can also be used to text the AD7440 generic

The SDP Controller board is a separate list item in the ordering guide below (EVAL-SDP-CB1Z). If you have not previously purchased an SDP Controller board, please do so to ensure a full evaluation setup.
