Analog to Digital Converters


End of Life (EOL) Notice »


Silicon Labs Analog to Digital Converters are designed for low power consumption and ease of use. Each ADC's dynamic performance can easily be evaluated with the TSDA-VB plug and play FFT data acquisition capture kit. The single-supply, 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADC), are successive-approximation ADCs that combines a high-bandwidth track-and-hold (T/H), a high-speed serial digital interface, an internal +2.5 V reference, and low conversion-mode power consumption. ADCs operate from a single +2.7 V to +3.6 V supply and draws less than 1 mA at 300 ksps.

Connecting directly to any SPI™/QSPI™/ MICROWIRE™ microcontrollers and other interface-compatible computing devices, the ADC's 3-wire serial interface is easy to use and doesn’t require separate, external logic. An external serial-interface clock controls the ADC3’s conversion process and its output shift register operation.

In PCB-space-conscious, low-power remote-sensor and data-acquisition applications, Silicon Labs' ADCs are an excellent choice for its low-power, ease-of-use, and small-package-footprint attributes.

As a pin-compatible and higher-speed upgrade to the MAX1286, the ADCs are fully specified over the -40 °C to +85 °C temperature range and are available in a low-profile, 8-pin 3 mm x 3 mm TDFN package with an exposed back-side paddle.
