The AD4001 is a low noise, low power, high speed, 16-bit, precision successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The AD4001 offers a 2 MSPS throughput. It incorporates ease of use features that reduce signal chain power consumption, reduce signal chain complexity, and enable higher channel density. The high-Z mode, coupled with a long acquisition phase, eliminates the need for a dedicated high power, high speed ADC driver, thus broadening the range of low power precision amplifiers that can drive these ADCs directly, while still achieving optimum performance. The input span compression feature enables the ADC driver amplifier and the ADC to operate off common supply rails without the need for a negative supply while preserving the full ADC code range. The low serial peripheral interface (SPI) clock rate requirement reduces the digital input/output power consumption, broadens processor options, and simplifies the task of sending data across digital isolation.
Operating from a 1.8 V supply, the AD4001 has a ±VREF fully differential input range with VREF ranging from 2.4 V to 5.1 V. The AD4001 consumes only 16 mW at 2 MSPS with a minimum SCK rate of 70 MHz in turbo mode. The AD4001 achieves ±0.4 LSB integral nonlinearity error (INL) maximum, guaranteed no missing codes at 16 bits with 96.2 dB typical signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for 1 kHz inputs. The reference voltage is applied externally and can be set independently of the supply voltage.
The SPI-compatible, versatile serial interface features seven different modes including the ability, using the SDI input, to daisy-chain several ADCs on a single 3-wire bus, and provides an optional busy indicator. The AD4001 is compatible with 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 3 V, and 5 V logic, using the separate VIO supply.
The AD4001 is available in a 10-lead MSOP or LFCSP with operation specified from −40°C to +125°C. The device is pin compatible with the 18-bit, 2 MSPS AD4003.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The AD4000 / AD4001 / AD4002 / AD4003 / AD4020 family of evaluation boards enable quick, simplified evaluation of the AD4000 family of 16-/18-/20-bit, precision successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The AD4000/AD4001/AD4002/AD4003/AD4020 are low power, 16-bit/18-bit/20-bit, precision SAR ADCs that offer high performance with throughputs up to 2 MSPS (1.8 MSPS for the AD4020). The evaluation board demonstrates the performance of the AD4000/AD4001/AD4002/AD4003/AD4020 family of ADCs and provides a simplified interface for a variety of system applications.
The EVAL-AD4000FMCZ / EVAL-AD4001FMCZ / EVAL-AD4002FMCZ / EVAL-AD4003FMCZ / EVAL-AD4020FMCZ evaluation boards (see Figure 1) are ideal for use with the Analog Devices, Inc., high speed system demonstration platform (EVAL-SDP-CH1Z). These evaluation boards interface to the SDP-H1 board via a 120-pin connector. SMA connectors, JP2 and JP3, are provided for the low noise analog signal source.
On-board components include a high precision buffered band gap 5.0 V reference (the ADR4550), a reference buffer (the ADA4807-1), a common-mode buffer (the ADA4807-1), a signal conditioning circuit with two op amps (the ADA4807-1), and a power supply to derive the necessary voltage levels to supply all voltage needs.
The EVAL-AD4000FMCZ, EVAL-AD4001FMCZ, EVAL-AD4002FMCZ and EVAL-AD4003FMCZ are populated with the AD4000, AD4001, AD4002 and AD4003, respectively. However, these boards can be used to evaluate the performance of the AD4004, AD4005, AD4006, AD4007, AD4008, AD4010, and AD4011 by limiting the sample rate in the evaluation software to the maximum sample rate of the specific ADC. For example, the AD4000 on the EVAL-AD4000FMCZ can be used to evaluate the performance of the AD4004 if the sample rate is limited to 1 MSPS. See the data sheet of each product for its corresponding evaluation board.
Full descriptions of these products are available in their respective data sheets, which must be consulted when using the corresponding evaluation board. Table 7 shows the models of the AD4000/AD4001/AD4002/AD4003/AD4020 evaluation boards.
