October 8, 2012 - Designed for polyphase energy metering applications, ADE7913 sigma-delta ADC incorporates iCouplerŽ and isoPowerŽ technologies to implement isolated signal transfer and DC/DC power conversion across 5 kV-rated insulation barrier. This enables use of shunt resistor sensing elements, providing immunity to magnetic field interference and tampering. Along with one current channel and 2 voltage channels, IC features temperature sensor, voltage reference, voltage regulator, and SPI.

Fully Isolated A/D Converter Ensures Energy Meter Magnetic Immunity


NORWOOD, Mass. -- Analog Devices, Inc., (ADI) a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today introduced the industry’s first fully isolated A/D converter designed for polyphase energy metering applications. The ADE7913 3-channel, sigma-delta A/D converter incorporates Analog Devices’ patented iCouplerŽ and isoPowerŽ technologies to implement isolated signal transfer and dc-to-dc power conversion across a 5kV-rated insulation barrier. This enables the use of shunt resistor sensing elements instead of current transformers (CTs), thereby providing immunity to magnetic field interference and tampering. The use of shunts instead of CTs also reduces system cost and size.

“In the past, polyphase meter manufacturers had to decide between CT-based architectures vulnerable to external magnetic fields, or discrete component shunt-based architectures involving excessive complexity and functionality compromises,” said Ronn Kliger, director for the Energy Group, Analog Devices. “Now, with an integrated component incorporating synchronized A/D conversion and galvanic isolation, our customers can develop feature-rich, cost-effective metrology solutions that are completely immune to magnetic interference.”

ADE7913 Energy Metering IC Key Features
• Three 24-bit isolated A/D converters: one current channel and two voltage channels
• Integrated isoPowerŽ isolated dc-to-dc converter
• Up to four ADE7913 energy metering ICs synchronously clocked from a single crystal or an external clock
• On-chip temperature sensor
• Integrated voltage reference and voltage regulator
• SPI serial interface
