16-Bit, 2 MSPS Precision Pseudo Differential SAR ADC
The AD4000 is a low noise, low power, high speed, 16-bit, 2 MSPS precision successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC). It incorporates ease of use features that lower the signal chain power, reduce signal chain complexity, and enable higher channel density. The high-Z mode, coupled with a long acquisition phase, eliminates the need for a dedicated high power, high speed ADC driver, thus broadening the range of low power precision amplifiers that can drive this ADC directly while still achieving optimum performance. The input span compression feature enables the ADC driver amplifier and the ADC to operate off common supply rails without the need for a negative supply while preserving the full ADC code range. The low serial peripheral interface (SPI) clock rate requirement reduces the digital input/output power consumption, broadens processor options, and simplifies the task of sending data across digital isolation.
Operating from a 1.8 V supply, the AD4000 samples an analog input (IN+) between 0 V to VREF with respect to a ground sense (IN−) with VREF ranging from 2.4 V to 5.1 V. The AD4000 consumes only 14 mW at 2 MSPS with a minimum of 70 MHz SCK rate in turbo mode and achieves ±1.0 LSB INL maximum, no missing codes at 16 bits with 93 dB SNR. The reference voltage is applied externally and can be set independently of the supply voltage.
The SPI-compatible versatile serial interface features seven different modes including the ability, using the SDI input, to daisy-chain several ADCs on a single 3-wire bus and provides an optional busy indicator. The AD4000 is compatible with 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 3 V, and 5 V logic, using the separate VIO supply.
The AD4000 is available in a 10-lead MSOP or a 10-lead LFCSP with operation specified from −40°C to +125°C. The device is pin compatible with the 18-bit, 2 MSPS AD4003.

This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
The EVAL-AD4000FMCZ / EVAL-AD4001FMCZ / EVAL-AD4003FMCZ / EVAL-AD4020FMCZ evaluation boards are ideal for use with the Analog Devices, Inc., high speed system demonstration platform (EVAL-SDP-CH1Z). These evaluation boards interface to the SDP-H1 board via a 120-pin connector. SMA connectors, JP2 and JP3, are provided for the low noise analog signal source.
On-board components include a high precision buffered band gap 5.0 V reference (the ADR4550), a reference buffer (the ADA4807-1), a common-mode buffer (the ADA4807-1), a signal conditioning circuit with two op amps (the ADA4807-1), and a power supply to derive the necessary voltage levels to supply all voltage needs.
The EVAL-AD4000FMCZ, EVAL-AD4001FMCZ, and EVAL-AD4003FMCZ are populated with the AD4000, AD4001, and AD4003, respectively. However, these boards can be used to evaluate the performance of the AD4004, AD4005, AD4007, AD4008, and AD4011 by limiting the sample rate in the evaluation software to the maximum sample rate of the specific ADC. For example, the AD4000 on the EVAL-AD4000FMCZ can be used to evaluate the performance of the AD4004 if the sample rate is limited to 1 MSPS. See the data sheet of each product for its corresponding evaluation board.
