High-Voltage SAR ADCs serve multi-channel industrial applications.

October 16, 2014

Operating from -40 to +125°C, 8-channel ADS8688 and 4-channel ADS8684 allow input ranges up to ±10.24 V to be powered by one 5 V supply. Products achieve better than 99.9% accuracy without calibration with DC error specifications that boost system-level performance. With specified gain drift of 4 ppm/°C and offset drift of 3 ppm/°C, each ADC integrates 20 active devices, including PGAs, driver amplifiers, multiplexer, voltage reference, and reference buffer into 38-pin, 9.7 x 4.4 mm TSSOP.
