Quad ADC with Diagnostics (10V Input)

Manufactured by:

Product Details

The ADAU1977 incorporates four high performance analog-todigital converters (ADCs) with direct-coupled inputs capable of 10 V rms. The ADC uses multibit sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) architecture with continuous time front end for low EMI. The ADCs can be connected to the electret microphone (ECM) directly and provide the bias for powering the microphone. Built-in diagnostic circuitry detects faults on input lines and includes comprehensive diagnostics for faults on microphone inputs. The faults reported are short to battery, short to microphone bias, short to ground, short between positive and negative input pins, and open input terminals. In addition, each diagnostic fault is available as an IRQ flag for ease in system design. An I2C/SPI control port is also included. The ADAU1977 uses only a single 3.3 V supply. The part internally generates the microphone bias voltage. The microphone bias is programmable in a few steps from 5 V to 9 V. The low power architecture reduces the power consumption. An on-chip PLL can derive the master clock from an external clock input or frame clock (sample rate clock). When fed with a frame clock, the PLL eliminates the need for a separate high frequency master clock in the system. The ADAU1977 is available in a 40-lead LFCSP package.

EVAL-ADAU1977 Circuit Diagram

Product Details

The EVAL-ADAU1977 is used for quick evaluation of the ADAU1977/78/79 Quad ADC. The board can output up to 4 channels of digital output. The board requires power supply of 5V and +/-18V.


Product Details

The Analog Devices USBi “USB Interface” (EVAL-ADUSB2EBZ) board is the interface between your PC's USB port and SigmaDSP hardware's data input pins. This interface can be used with any evaluation board which includes an External SPI/I²C header (Aardvark Header). The EVAL-ADUSB2EBZ board is capable of both SPI and I²C communication (which is user selectable) and can supply IOVDD of either 3.3V or 1.8V.The USBi interface is powered from the computer's USB port.

To Install the USBi Board:
  • Connect the USB cable to the USBi Board a spare USB port on your PC.
  • The Windows “Found New Hardware Wizard” will launch.
  • Choose “Install from a list or a specific location” and click “Next”.
  • Select “Search for the best driver in these locations” and Check the box for “Include this location in the search.”
  • Press the “Browse” button and locate the appropriate driver file in the SigmaStudio application folder (default folder is C:\Program Files\Analog Devices Inc\Sigma Studio\USB drivers): Select the CyUSB.inf file.
  • Click “Continue Anyway” if you're prompted with “This software has not passed Windows Logo testing.”
Using USBi in SigmaStudio:
To communication between SigmaStudio and the USBi board, a communication channel block must be added to the Schematic design. To locate the block, select the Hardware Configuration Tab, int the ToolBox or Tree ToolBox window choose the “Communication Channels” category, and select the USBi block.


This block provides connections for multiple processors (ICs / DSPs), allowing you to use multiple processors in a single design. This block allows you to explicitly specify both the communication protocol (SPI or I²C) and the part's address, I²C address or SPI clatch line. The DSP hardware's address must match the block's selected address for communication to function properly. See the parts data sheet for more information about addressing (e.g. ADR_SEL, ADDR0, or ADDR1 pins). The default USBi protocol is I²C, to enable SPI, you must first select an SPI address in the block's drop down menu and then perform three write operations (e.g. press the write button the Register Read/Write Window 3 times). The USBi hardware has LEDs which indicate the current mode, I²C or SPI.


EVAL-SC584-EZLITE Circuit Diagram


Product Details

The ADSP-SC584 EZ-KIT Lite and EZ-Board® are evaluation systems for the ADSP-SC58x family of SHARC® processors.  The ADSP-SC584 processor is based on the SHARC+™ core dual processor with the ARM® Cortex-A5™ processor core and is designed for a wide array of markets, from automotive and pro-audio to industrial-based applications that require high floating-point performance. The EZ-Board is shipped with all of the necessary hardware—you can start the evaluation immediately. The package contains the standalone evaluation board, CE-approved power supply, and USB cable. The EZ-KIT Lite® version ships with two 180 day licenses for CrossCore® Embedded Studio (CCES) and the ICE-1000 emulator, while the EZ-Board version requires the customer to provide an ICE-1000 or ICE-2000 emulator.

Expansion Interface III connectors are provided for interfacing with additional extender boards to provide LCD, camera, video, and audio. Traditional mechanical switches for changing the board's factory setup have been removed in favor of I2C controlled software switches. The only remaining mechanical switches are the boot mode switch, JTAG configuration switches, and push buttons.

The evaluation board is designed to be used in conjunction with the -CrossCore® Embedded Studio (CCES) development tools to test capabilities of the ADSP-SC58x processors. The development environment aids advanced application code development and debug, such as:

  • Create, compile, assemble, and link application programs written in C++, C, and assembly
  • Load, run, step, halt, and set breakpoints in application programs
  • Read and write data and program memory
  • Read and write core and peripheral registers
