ADS7947 12-Bit 2MSPS ADC

TI's 12-bit 2MSPS, dual-channel, unipolar, pseudo-differential, ultralow-power SAR ADC

Image of Texas Instruments' ADS7947 12-Bit 2MSPS ADCTexas Instruments' ADS7947 is a 12-bit 2MSPS analog-to-digital converter (ADC). This device operates at 2MSPS with a standard 16 clock data frame. In addition, it is possible to operate the ADS7947 at 2.1MSPS with a short data frame optimized for the number of clocks sufficient for conversion with no drop in performance. The device features both outstanding DC precision and excellent dynamic performance. This family of pin-compatible devices includes a two-channel input multiplexer and a low-power successive approximation register (SAR) ADC with an inherent sample-and-hold (S/H) input stage. The ADS7947 supports a wide analog supply range that allows the full-scale input range to extend to 5V. A simple SPI™, with a digital supply that can operate as low as 1.65V, allows for easy interfacing to a wide variety of digital controllers. Automatic power-down can be enabled when operating at slower speeds to dramatically reduce power consumption.
