Use ADI’s full suite of precision tools to design, analyze, and simulate your precision signal chain. Use the Precision ADC Driver Tool to select and customize the driver for your ADC; use the tools in Precision Studio to select components, design filters, optimize and analyze amplifier circuits, and design sensor interfaces. Export your design to LTspice® to create your own circuit schematic and perform full signal chain simulation.

ADC Driver tool user interface

ADC Driver Tool

Use the Precision ADC Driver Tool to simulate the performance of precision ADC and driver combinations. Potential issues with driver selection, kickback settling, and distortion are flagged, and design trade-offs can be quickly evaluated. Simulations and calculations include system noise, distortion, and settling of the ADC input.

Precision Studio user interface

Precision Studio

This suite of web tools helps you design signal conditioning circuits faster. Included tools: Analog Filter Wizard, Precision ADC Driver Tool, Photodiode Wizard, In-Amp Diamond Plot, Direct Digital Synthesis Simulator, and Virtual Eval ADC simulator.
