Product Details

The 10-lead PulSAR® evaluation board covers the following 10-lead PulSAR analog-to-digital converters (ADCs): AD7685 (16-bit), AD7686 (16-bit), AD7687 (16-bit), AD7688 (16-bit), AD7690 (18-bit), AD7691 (18-bit), AD7693 (16-bit), AD7942 (14-bit), AD7946 (14-bit), AD7980 (16-bit), AD7982 (18-bit), AD7983 (16-bit), AD7984 (18-bit), AD7988-5 (16-bit), AD7989-5 (18-bit), AD7915 (16-bit) and AD7916 (16-bit).

The 8-lead PulSAR evaluation board covers the following 8-lead PulSAR ADCs: AD7683 (16-bit), AD7684 (16-bit), and AD7694 (16-bit).

These low power ADCs offer very high performance of up to 18 bits with throughputs ranging from 100 kSPS to 1.33 MSPS. The evaluation board is designed to demonstrate the performance of the ADCs and to provide an easy to understand interface for a variety of system applications. A full description of these products is available in their respective data sheets, which should be consulted when using this evaluation board. The evaluation board is ideal for use with Analog Devices, Inc., system demonstration platform (SDP). This evaluation board interfaces to the SDP board via a 120-pin connector. SMA connectors, J6 and J10, are provided for the low noise analog signal source.

On-board components include a high precision buffered band gap 5.0 V reference (ADR435), a signal conditioning circuit with two op amps (ADA4841-1), and a power supply to derive the necessary voltage levels to supply all voltage needs. The 8-lead board also includes a level shifter (ADG3304) to interface the ADC with the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z.
