8-Channel, 24-Bit Simultaneous Sampling ADC
The AD7770 is an 8-channel, simultaneous sampling ADC. Eight full sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) ADCs are on chip. The AD7770 provides a low input current to allow direct sensor connection. Each input channel has a programmable gain stage allowing gains of 1, 2, 4, and 8 to map lower amplitude sensor outputs into the full-scale ADC input range, maximizing the dynamic range of the signal chain. The AD7770 accepts a VREF voltage from 1 V up to 3.6 V.
The analog inputs accept unipolar (0 V to VREF) or true bipolar (±VREF/2) analog input signals with 3.3 V or ±1.65 V analog supply voltages, respectively for PGAGAIN = 1. The analog inputs can be configured to accept true differential, pseudo differential, or single-ended signals to match different sensor output configurations.
Each channel contains a PGA, an ADC modulator and a sinc3, low latency digital filter. An SRC is provided to allow fine resolution control over the AD7770 ODR. This control can be used in applications where the ODR resolution is required to maintain coherency with 0.01 Hz changes in the line frequency. The SRC is programmable through the serial port interface (SPI). The AD7770 implements two different interfaces: a data output interface and SPI control interface. The ADC data output interface is dedicated to transmitting the ADC conversion results from the AD7770 to the processor. The SPI writes to and reads from the AD7770 configuration registers and for the control and reading of data from the SAR ADC. The SPI can also be configured to output the Σ-Δ conversion data.
The AD7770 includes a 12-bit SAR ADC. This ADC can be used for AD7770 diagnostics without having to decommission one of the Σ-Δ ADC channels dedicated to system measurement functions. With the use of an external multiplexer, which can be controlled through the three general-purpose input/output pins (GPIOs), and signal conditioning, the SAR ADC can validate the Σ-Δ ADC measurements in applications where functional safety is required. In addition, the AD7770 SAR ADC includes an internal multiplexer to sense internal nodes.
The AD7770 contains a 2.5 V reference and reference buffer. The reference has a typical temperature coefficient of 10 ppm/°C.
The AD7770 offers two modes of operation: high resolution mode and low power mode. High resolution mode provides a higher dynamic range while consuming 10.75 mW per channel; low power mode consumes just 3.37 mW per channel at a reduced dynamic range specification.
The specified operating temperature range is −40°C to +105°C, although the device is operational up to +125°C.

The EVAL-AD7770FMCZ/EVAL-AD7771FMCZ/ EVAL-AD7779FMCZ evaluation kit features the AD7770, AD7771, and AD7779 24-bit, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The board interfaces with the system demonstration platform SDP-H1 controller board (EVAL-SDP-CH1Z). The SDP-H1 controller board supplies power to the EVAL-AD7770FMCZ/EVAL-AD7771FMCZ/EVAL-AD7779FMCZ evaluation board and also connects to a PC running a Windows® operating system via a USB cable. The AD777x evaluation software fully configures the AD7770, AD7771, and AD7779 device register functionality and provides dc and ac time domain analysis in the form of waveform graphs, histograms, and associated noise analysis for ADC performance evaluation.
The EVAL-AD7770FMCZ/EVAL-AD7771FMCZ/EVAL-AD7779FMCZ evaluation board allows the user to evaluate the features of the ADC. The user PC software executable controls the AD7770, AD7771, and AD7779 over the USB cable through the SDP-H1 controller board.
Full specifications for the AD7770, AD7771, or AD7779 are available in the AD7770, AD7771, or AD7779 data sheets and should be consulted in conjunction with user guide UG-884 when working with the evaluation board.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
