3 V/5 V, ±10 V Input Range, 1 mW 3-Channel 16-Bit, Sigma-Delta ADC
The AD7707 is a complete analog front end for low frequency measurement applications. This 3-channel device can accept either low level input signals directly from a transducer or high level (±10 V) signals and produce a serial digital output. It employs a Σ-Δ conversion technique to realize up to 16 bits of no missing codes performance. The selected input signal is applied to a proprietary programmable gain front end based around an analog modulator. The modulator output is processed by an on-chip digital filter. The first notch of this digital filter can be programmed via an on-chip control register allowing adjustment of the filter cutoff and output update rate.
The AD7707 operates from a single 2.7 V to 3.3 V or 4.75 V to 5.25 V supply. The AD7707 features two low level pseudo differential analog input channels, one high level input channel and a differential reference input. Input signal ranges of 0 mV to 20 mV through 0 V to 2.5 V can be accommodated on both low level input channels when operating with a VDD of 5 V and a reference of 2.5 V. They can also handle bipolar input signal ranges of ±20 mV through ±2.5 V, which are referenced to the LCOM input. The AD7707, with a 3 V supply and a 1.225 V reference, can handle unipolar input signal ranges of 0 mV to 10 mV through 0 V to 1.225 V. Its bipolar input signal ranges are ±10 mV through ±1.225 V. The high level input channel can accept input signal ranges of ±10 V, ±5 V, 0 V to 10 V and 0 V to 5 V. The AD7707 thus performs all signal conditioning and conversion for a 3-channel system.
The AD7707 is ideal for use in smart, microcontroller or DSP- based systems. It features a serial interface that can be configured for 3-wire operation. Gain settings, signal polarity and update rate selection can be configured in software using the input serial port. The part contains self-calibration and system calibration options to eliminate gain and offset errors on the part itself or in the system.
CMOS construction ensures very low power dissipation, and the power-down mode reduces the standby power consumption to 20 μW typical. This part is available in a 20-lead wide body (0.3 inch) small outline (SOIC) package and a low profile 20-lead TSSOP.
- The AD7707 consumes less than 1 mW at 3 V supplies and 1 MHz master clock, making it ideal for use in low power systems. Standby current is less than 8 μA.
- On-chip thin-film resistors allow ±10 V, ±5 V, 0 V to 10 V, and 0 V to 5 V high level input signals to be directly accom- modated on the analog inputs without requiring split supplies or charge-pumps.
- The low level input channels allow the AD7707 to accept input signals directly from a strain gage or transducer removing a considerable amount of signal conditioning.
- The part features excellent static performance specifications with 16 bits, no missing codes, ±0.003% accuracy, and low rms noise. Endpoint errors and the effects of temperature drift are eliminated by on-chip calibration options, which remove zero-scale and full-scale errors.
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
