The AD7656A contains six 16-bit, fast, low power, successive approximation analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) all in the one package that is designed on the iCMOS® process (industrial CMOS). iCMOS is a process combining high voltage silicon with submicron CMOS and complementary bipolar technologies. It enables the development of a wide range of high performance analog ICs, capable of 33 V operation in a footprint that no previous generation of high voltage devices could achieve. Unlike analog ICs using conventional CMOS processes, iCMOS components can accept bipolar input signals while providing increased performance, which dramatically reduces power consumption and package size.
The AD7656A features throughput rates of up to 250 kSPS. It contains wide bandwidth (12 MHz), track-and-hold amplifiers that can handle input frequencies up to 12 MHz.
The conversion process and data acquisition are controlled using CONVST x signals and an internal oscillator. Three CONVST x pins (CONVST A, CONVST B, and CONVST C) allow independent, simultaneous sampling of the three ADC pairs. The AD7656A has a high speed parallel and serial interface, allowing the device to interface with microprocessors or digital signal processors (DSPs). In serial interface mode, the AD7656A has a daisy-chain feature that allows multiple ADCs to connect to a single serial interface. The AD7656A can accommodate true bipolar input signals in the ±4 × VREF range and ±2 × VREF range. The AD7656A also contains an on-chip 2.5 V reference.
