The AD5410/AD5420 are low cost, precision, fully integrated 12-/16-bit converters offering a programmable current source output designed to meet the requirements of industrial process control applications. The output current range is programmable at 4 mA to 20 mA, 0 mA to 20 mA, or an overrange function of 0 mA to 24 mA. The output is open-circuit protected. The device operates with a power supply (AVDD) range from 10.8 V to 60 V. Output loop compliance is 0 V to AVDD − 2.5 V.
The flexible serial interface is SPI, MICROWIRE™, QSPI™, and DSP compatible and can be operated in 3-wire mode to minimize the digital isolation required in isolated applications.
The device also includes a power-on reset function, ensuring that the device powers up in a known state, and an asynchronous CLEAR pin that sets the output to the low end of the selected current range.
The total unadjusted error is typically ±0.01% FSR.
- Process control
- Actuator control
- HART network connectivity
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
The evaluation board can be used as a standalone board, with control coming from an external DSP or microcontroller, or it can be connected to a PC via USB interface. Software is provided that can be used to program the registers of the AD5420 via the USB interface to the PC.
Please note: This Evaluation software does not run on Windows 8 or Windows 10 (USB driver is non-compliant with OS >Windows 7).
Recommended Digital Isolators
- For cost sensitive designs , we recommend the ADUM7440, ADUM7441 or the ADUM7442 .
