The ADE9153A is a highly accurate, single-phase, energy metering IC with autocalibration. The mSure® autocalibration feature allows a meter to automatically calibrate the current and voltage channels without using an accurate source or an accurate reference meter when a shunt resistor is used as a current sensor. Class 1 and Class 2 meters are supported by mSure autocalibration.
The ADE9153A incorporates three high performance analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), providing an 88 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The ADE9153A offers an advanced metrology feature set of measurements like line voltage and current, active energy, fundamental reactive energy, and apparent energy calculations, and current and voltage rms calculations. ADE9153A includes power quality measurements such as zero crossing detection, line period calculation, angle measurement, dip and swell, peak and overcurrent detection, and power factor measurements. Each input channel supports independent and flexible gain stages. Current Channel A is ideal for shunts, having a flexible gain stage and providing full-scale input ranges from 62.5 mV peak down to 26.04 mV peak. Current Channel B has gain stages of 1×, 2×, and 4× for use with current transformers (CTs). A high speed, 10 MHz, serial peripheral interface (SPI) port allows access to the ADE9153A registers.
The ADE9153A operates from a 3.3 V supply and is available in a 32-lead LFCSP package.

The ADE9000 is a highly accurate, fully integrated, multiphase energy and power quality monitoring device. Superior analog performance and a digital signal processing (DSP) core enable accurate energy monitoring over a wide dynamic range. An integrated high end reference ensures low drift over temperature with a combined drift of less than ±25 ppm/°C maximum for the entire channel including a programmable gain amplifier (PGA) and an analog-to-digital converter (ADC).
The ADE9000 offers complete power monitoring capability by providing total as well as fundamental measurements on rms, active, reactive, and apparent powers and energies. Advanced features such as dip and swell monitoring, frequency, phase angle, voltage total harmonic distortion (VTHD), current total harmonic distortion (ITHD), and power factor measurements enable implementation of power quality measurements. The ½ cycle rms and 10 cycle rms/12 cycle rms, calculated according to IEC 61000-4-30 Class S, provide instantaneous rms measurements for real-time monitoring.
The ADE9000 offers an integrated flexible waveform buffer that stores samples at a fixed data rate of 32 kSPS or 8 kSPS, or a sampling rate that varies based on line frequency to ensure 128 points per line cycle. Resampling simplifies fast Fourier transform (FFT) calculation of at least 50 harmonics in an external processor.
The ADE9000 simplifies the implementation of energy and power quality monitoring systems by providing tight integration of acquisition and calculation engines. The integrated ADCs and DSP engine calculate various parameters and provide data through user accessible registers or indicate events through interrupt pins. With seven dedicated ADC channels, the ADE9000 can be used on a 3-phase system or up to three single-phase systems. It supports current transformers (CTs) or Rogowski coils for current measurements. A digital integrator eliminates a discrete integrator required for Rogowski coils.
The ADE9000 absorbs most complexity in calculations for a power monitoring system. With a simple host microcontroller, the ADE9000 enables the design of standalone monitoring or protection systems, or low cost nodes uploading data into the cloud.
Note that throughout this data sheet, multifunction pins, such as CF4/EVENT/DREADY, are referred to either by the entire pin name or by a single function of the pin, for example, EVENT, when only that function is relevant.

The AD7779 is an 8-channel, simultaneous sampling ADC. There are eight full Σ-Δ ADCs on chip. The AD7779 provides an ultralow 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 AD7779 accepts VREF from 1 V up to 3.6 V. The analog inputs accept unipolar (0 V to VREF/GAIN) or true bipolar (±VREF/GAIN/2 V) analog input signals with 3.3 V or ±1.65 V analog supply voltages. The analog inputs can be configured to accept true differential, pseudo differential, or singleended signals to match different sensor output configurations.
Each channel contains an ADC modulator and a sinc3, low latency digital filter. An SRC is provided to allow fine resolution control over the AD7779 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 AD7779 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 AD7779 to the processor. The SPI interface is used to write to and read from the AD7779 configuration registers and for the control and reading of data from the SAR ADC. The SPI interface can also be configured to output the Σ-Δ conversion data.
The AD7779 includes a 12-bit SAR ADC. This ADC can be used for AD7779 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 inputs/outputs pins (GPIOs), and signal conditioning, the SAR ADC can be used to validate the Σ-Δ ADC measurements in applications where functional safety is required. In addition, the AD7779 SAR ADC includes an internal multiplexer to sense internal nodes.
The AD7779 contains a 2.5 V reference and reference buffer. The reference has a typical temperature coefficient of 10 ppm/°C. The AD7779 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.
