Input Signal Range: 0 V to VREF
Reference Input Range: 1.2 V to VDD
The AD7811 and AD7812 are high speed, low power, 10-bit
A/D converters that operate from a single 2.7 V to 5.5 V supply.
The devices contain a 2.3 µs successive approximation A/D
converter, an on-chip track/hold amplifier, a 2.5 V on-chip refer-
ence and a high speed serial interface that is compatible with the
serial interfaces of most DSPs (Digital Signal Processors) and
microcontrollers. The user also has the option of using an exter-
nal reference by connecting it to the VREF pin and setting the
EXTREF bit in the control register. The VREF pin may be tied
to VDD. At slower throughput rates the power-down mode may
be used to automatically power down between conversions.
The control registers of the AD7811 and AD7812 allow the
input channels to be configured as single-ended or pseudo
differential. The control register also features a software convert
start and a software power-down. Two of these devices can
share the same serial bus and may be individually addressed in
a multipackage application by hardwiring the device address pin.
The AD7811 is available in a small, 16-lead 0.3" wide, plastic
dual-in-line package (mini-DIP), in a 16-lead 0.15" wide, Small
Outline IC (SOIC) and in a 16-lead, Thin Shrink Small Out-
line Package (TSSOP). The AD7812 is available in a small,
20-lead 0.3" wide, plastic dual-in-line package (mini-DIP), in a
20-lead, Small Outline IC (SOIC) and in a 20-lead, Thin Shrink
Small Outline Package (TSSOP).
1. Low Power, Single Supply Operation
Both the AD7811 and AD7812 operate from a single 2.7 V
to 5.5 V supply and typically consume only 10 mW of power.
The power dissipation can be significantly reduced at
lower throughput rates by using the automatic power-
down mode e.g., 315 µW @ 10 kSPS, VDD = 3 V—see
Power vs. Throughput.
2. 4-/8-Channel, 10-Bit ADC
The AD7811 and AD7812 have four and eight single-ended
input channels respectively. These inputs can be configured
as pseudo differential inputs by using the Control Register.
3. On-chip 2.5 V (± 2.5%) reference circuit that is powered
down when using an external reference.
4. Hardware and Software Control
The AD7811 and AD7812 provide for both hardware and
software control of Convert Start and Power-Down.
