EVALUATION KIT AVAILABLE
1Msps, Low-Power, Serial 12-/10-/8-Bit,
The MAX11120–MAX11128 are 12-/10-/8-bit with exter-
nal reference and industry-leading 1.5MHz, full linear
bandwidth, high speed, low-power, serial output suc-
cessive-approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital
converters (ADCs). The MAX11120–MAX11128 include
both internal and external clock modes. These devices
feature scan mode in both internal and external clock
modes. The internal clock mode features internal averag-
ing to increase SNR. The external clock mode features
the SampleSetK technology, a user-programmable ana-
log input channel sequencer. The SampleSet approach
provides greater sequencing flexibility for multichannel
applications while alleviating significant microcontroller
or DSP (controlling unit) communication overhead.
The internal clock mode features an integrated FIFO
allowing data to be sampled at high speeds and then held
for readout at any time or at a lower clock rate. Internal
averaging is also supported in this mode improving SNR
for noisy input signals. The devices feature analog input
channels that can be configured to be single-ended
inputs, fully differential pairs, or pseudo-differential inputs
with respect to one common input. The MAX11120–
MAX11128 operate from a 2.35V to 3.6V supply and con-
sume only 5.4mW at 1Msps.
The MAX11120–MAX11128 include AutoShutdownK,
fast wake-up, and a high-speed 3-wire serial interface.
The devices feature full power-down mode for optimal
The 16MHz, 3-wire serial interface directly connects to
SPI, QSPIK, and MICROWIREM devices without external
Excellent dynamic performance, low voltage, low power,
ease of use, and small package size make these convert-
ers ideal for portable battery-powered data-acquisition
applications, and for other applications that demand low
power consumption and small space.
The MAX11120–MAX11128 are available in 28-pin, 5mm
x 5mm, TQFN packages and operate over the -40NC to
+125NC temperature range.
