Product Details

The LTC2446/LTC2447 4-terminal switching enables multiplexed ratiometric measurements. Four sets of selectable differential inputs coupled with four sets of differential reference inputs allow multiple RTDs, bridges and other sensors to be digitized by a single converter. A fifth differential reference input can be selected for any input channel not requiring ratiometric measurements (thermocouples, voltages, current sense, etc.). The flexible input multiplexer allows single-ended or differential inputs coupled with a slaved reference input or a universal reference input.

A proprietary delta-sigma architecture results in absolute accuracy (offset, full-scale, linearity) of 15ppm, noise as low as 200nVRMS and speeds as high as 8kHz. Through a simple 4-wire interface, ten speed/resolution combinations can be selected. The first conversion following a speed, resolution, channel change or reference change is valid since there is no settling time between conversions, enabling scan rates of up to 4kHz. Additionally, a 2x mode can be selected for any speed-enabling output rates up to 8kHz with one cycle of latency.
