Product Details

The EVAL-AD7172-2SDZ evaluation kit features the AD7172-2, a low power, 24-bit, 31.25 kSPS, Σ-Δ analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with true rail-to-rail buffers, on-board power supply regulation, and an external amplifier section for amplifier evaluation. A 7 V to 9 V ac-to-dc adapter is regulated to 5 V and 3.3 V; this supplies the AD7172-2 and support components. The EVAL-AD7172-2SDZ connects to a USB port via the SDP on the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z controller board.

The EVAL-AD7172-2SDZ evaluation software fully configures the AD7172-2 device functionality via a user accessible register interface and provides dc time domain analysis in the form of waveform graphs, histograms, and associated noise analysis for ADC performance evaluation.

Full details about the device are available in the AD7172-2 data sheet, which should be consulted when using the EVAL-AD7172-2SDZ.


Evaluation Software

AD717x Eval+ Software (Rev. V3.3.2.3)
Eval+ is single piece of software to aid in product selection, evaluation and debug of the AD717x. Eval+ enables customers to understand all performance trade-offs that a user or application should care about in an easy to use and understand way even without hardware. Eval+ does this by integrating a functional model of the AD717x. Customers don’t need to read pages of register information to understand and program the device as the interactive block diagram simplifies configuration and the integrated documentation pane contains all the same register information as that found in the data sheet. The Eval+ modelling functionality includes waveform and histogram plots with noise performance results, filter frequency response plots and information about the filter latency and delay. It also includes power consumption figures for the selected mode and timing information to show the impact of multiplexing channels on the AD717x.
