Product Details

Fast settling, highly accurate, low power, 8-/16-channel, multiplexed ADC for low bandwidth input signals with integrated input buffers.

Integrated precision, 2.5 V, low drift (3.5 ppm/°C), band gap reference and integrated oscillator.

Eight flexible setups with configurability for output data rate, digital filter mode, offset/gain error correction, reference selection, buffer enables and more. This per channel configurability extends to the output data rate used for each channel when using sinc5 + sinc1 filter.

Sinc5 + sinc1 filter maximizes channel scan rate, and sinc3 filter maximizes resolution and enhanced 50 Hz/60 Hz rejection, with four selectable options to maximize rejection.

Integrated diagnostic features, including CRC, register checksum, temperature sensor, crosspoint multiplexer, burnout currents, and GPIOs/GPOs.


  • Process control: PLC/DCS modules
    • Voltage, current, temperature, and pressure measurement
    • Flow meters
  • Medical and scientific multichannel instrumentation
  • Seismic instrumentation
  • Chemical analysis instrumentation: chromatography

    Tools & Simulations

    Virtual Eval - BETA

    Virtual Eval is a web application to assist designers in product evaluation of ADCs, DACs, and other ADI products. Using detailed models on Analog’s servers, Virtual Eval simulates crucial part performance characteristics within seconds. Configure operating conditions such as input tones and external jitter, as well as device features like gain or digital down-conversion. Performance characteristics include noise, distortion, and resolution, FFTs, timing diagrams, response plots, and more.
