The AD7606C-18 is an 18-bit, simultaneous sampling, analog-to-digital data acquisition system (DAS) with eight channels. Each channel contains analog input clamp protection, a programmable gain amplifier (PGA), a low-pass filter (LPF), and an 18-bit successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The AD7606C-18 also contains a flexible digital filter, a low drift, 2.5 V precision reference, a reference buffer to drive the ADC, and flexible parallel and serial interfaces.
The AD7606C-18 operates from a single 5 V supply and accommodates the following input ranges when sampling at throughput rates of 1 MSPS for all channels:
- Bipolar single-ended: ±12.5 V, ±10 V, ±6.25 V, ±5 V, and ±2.5 V
- Unipolar single-ended: 0 V to 12.5 V, 0 V to 10 V, and 0 V to 5 V
- Bipolar differential: ±20 V, ±12.5 V, ±10 V, and ±5 V
The input clamp protection tolerates voltages up to ±21 V. The single supply operation, on-chip filtering, and high input impedance eliminate the need for external driver op amps, which require bipolar supplies. For applications with lower throughput rates, the AD7606C-18 flexible digital filter can be used to improve noise performance.
In hardware mode, the AD7606C-18 is fully compatible with the AD7608 and AD7609. In software mode, the following advanced features are available:
- Analog input range selectable per channel with added ranges available
- High bandwidth mode (220 kHz) selectable per channel
- Additional oversampling options with an oversampling ratio up to 256
- System gain, system offset, and system phase calibration, per channel
- Analog input open circuit detector
- Diagnostic multiplexer
- Monitoring functions (serial peripheral interface (SPI) invalid read and write, cyclic redundancy check (CRC), busy stuck monitor, and reset detection)
Note that throughout the data sheet, multifunction pins, such as the RD/SCLK pin, are referred to either by the entire pin name or by a single function of the pin, for example, the SCLK pin, when only that function is relevant.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The EVAL-AD7606CFMCZ is a fully featured evaluation board that allows users to evaluate the features of the AD7606C-18 and AD7606C-16 analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The EVAL-AD7606CFMCZ is controlled by the EVAL-SDP-CH1Z (SDP-H1) system demonstration platform (SDP). The SDP-H1 controls the EVAL-AD7606CFMCZ through the USB port of a PC using the Analysis | Control | Evaluation (ACE) software, which is available to download from the ACE software page or the AD7606C-18 or the AD7606C-16 product page.
The on-board components include the ADP7118 5 V and 3.3 V low noise, low dropout (LDO) linear regulators and an ADR4525 high precision, band gap voltage reference.
Figure 1 in the user guide shows the evaluation board photograph. The printed model number on the evaluation board is EVAL-AD7606CFMCZ.
For full details on the AD7606C-18 and the AD7606C-16, see the AD7606C-18 and AD7606C-16 data sheets, which must be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using the EVAL-AD7606CFMCZ. In addition, full details on the SDP-H1 are available on the SDP-H1 product page.
Throughout this user guide, the EVAL-AD7606CFMCZ refers to either the EVAL-AD7606C18FMCZ or the EVAL-AD7606C16FMCZ.
