PIXI, 20-Port Programmable Mixed-Signal I/O with
12-Bit ADC, 12-Bit DAC, Analog Switches, and GPIO
The MAX11300 integrates a PIXI™, 12-bit, multichannel,
analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and a 12-bit, multichannel,
buffered digital-to-analog converter (DAC) in a single
integrated circuit. This device offers 20 mixed-signal high-
voltage, bipolar ports, which are configurable as an ADC
analog input, a DAC analog output, a general-purpose
input (GPI), a general-purpose output (GPO), or an analog
switch terminal. One internal and two external temperature
sensors track junction and environmental temperature.
Adjacent pairs of ports are configurable as a logic-level
translator for open-drain devices or an analog switch.
PIXI ports provide highly flexible hardware configuration
for 12-bit mixed-signal applications. The MAX11300 is best
suited for applications that demand a mixture of analog and
digital functions. Each port is individually configurable with
up to four selectable voltage ranges within -10V to +10V.
The MAX11300 allows for the averaging of 2, 4, 8, 16, 32,
64, or 128 ADC samples from each ADC-configured port
to improve noise performance. A DAC-configured output
port can drive up to 25mA. The GPIO ports can be
programmed to user-defined logic levels, and a GPI
coupled with a GPO forms a logic-level translator.
Internal and external temperature measurements monitor
programmable conditions of minimum and maximum
temperature limits, using the interrupt to notify the host if one
or more conditions occur. The temperature measurement
results are made available through the serial interface.
The device features an internal, low-noise 2.5V voltage
reference and provides the option to use external voltage
references with separate inputs for the DAC and ADC.
The device uses a 4-wire, 20MHz, SPI-compatible serial
interface, operating from a 5V analog supply and a 1.8V
to 5.0V digital supply. The PIXI port supply voltages operate
from a wide range of -12.0V to +12.0V.
The MAX11300 is available in a 40-pin TQFN, 6mm x 6mm
package or a 48-pin TQFP, 7mm x 7mm package specified
over the -40°C to +105°C temperature range.
