The AD7986 is an 18-bit, 2 MSPS successive approximation, analog-to-digital converter (ADC). It contains a low power, high speed, 18-bit sampling ADC, an internal conversion clock, an internal reference (and buffer), error correction circuits, and a versatile serial interface port. On the rising edge of CNV, the AD7986 samples the voltage difference between the IN+ and IN− pins. The voltages on these pins usually swing in opposite phases between 0 V and VREF. It features a very high sampling rate turbo mode (TURBO = high) and a reduced power normal mode (TURBO = low) for low power applications where the power is scaled with the throughput.
In normal mode (TURBO = low), the SPI-compatible serial interface also features the ability, using the SDI input, to daisychain several ADCs on a single 3-wire bus and provide an optional busy indicator. It is compatible with 1.8 V, 2.5 V, and 2.7 V using the separate VIO supply.
The AD7986 is available in a 20-lead LFCSP with operation specified from −40°C to +85°C.

The EVAL-AD7986FMCZ is a fully featured evaluation kit for the AD7986. This board operates in conjunction with the system development platform board, EVAL-SDP-CH1Z. When operated with the system development platform board, software is provided enabling the user to perform detailed analysis of the performance of the ADC. This software has an accompanying user guide describing the operation and set up of the evaluation board when operated with the system development platform board.
