The AD74011 is a second-order, sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) modulator
that converts an analog input signal into a high speed, 1-bit data
stream with on-chip digital isolation based on Analog Devices,
Inc., iCoupler® technology. The AD7401 operates from a 5 V
power supply and accepts a differential input signal of ±200 mV
(±320 mV full scale). The analog input is continuously sampled
by the analog modulator, eliminating the need for external sample-
and-hold circuitry. The input information is contained in the
output stream as a density of ones with a data rate up to 20 MHz.
The original information can be reconstructed with an appropriate
digital filter. The serial input/output can use a 5 V or a 3 V
The serial interface is digitally isolated. High speed CMOS,
combined with monolithic air core transformer technology,
means the on-chip isolation provides outstanding performance
characteristics, superior to alternatives such as optocoupler devices.
The device contains an on-chip reference. The AD7401 is offered
in a 16-lead SOIC and has an operating temperature range of
−40°C to +105°C.
An internal clock version, AD7400, is also available.
