The AD2S1210-EP is a complete 10-bit to 16-bit resolution
tracking resolver-to-digital converter, integrating an on-board
programmable sinusoidal oscillator that provides sine wave
excitation for resolvers.
The converter accepts 3.15 V p-p ± 27% input signals, in the range
of 2 kHz to 20 kHz on the sine and cosine inputs. A Type II
servo loop is employed to track the inputs and convert the input
sine and cosine information into a digital representation of the
input angle and velocity. The maximum tracking rate is 3125 rps.
Full details about this enhanced product, including theory of
operation, registers details, and applications information, are
available in the AD2S1210 data sheet, which should be
concluded in conjunction with this data sheet.

1. Ratiometric tracking conversion. The Type II tracking loop
provides continuous output position data without
conversion delay. It also provides noise immunity and
tolerance of harmonic distortion on the reference and
2. System fault detection. A fault detection circuit can sense
loss of resolver signals, out-of-range input signals, input
signal mismatch, or loss of position tracking. The fault
detection threshold levels can be individually programmed
by the user for optimization within a particular application.
3. signal range. The sine and cosine inputs can accept
differential input voltages of 3.15 V p-p ± 27%.
4. Programmable excitation frequency. Excitation frequency
is easily programmable to a number of standard frequencies
between 2 kHz and 20 kHz.
5. Triple format position data. Absolute 10-bit to 16-bit angular
position data is accessed via either a 16-bit parallel port or a
4-wire serial interface. Incremental encoder emulation is in
standard A-quad-B format with direction output available.
6. Digital velocity output. 10-bit to 16-bit signed digital
velocity accessed via either a 16-bit parallel port or a 4-wire
