ADI AD7768: 24-bit, 8-Channel Simultaneous-sampling 256 kSPS Σ-Δ ADC

The AD7768/AD7768-4 are 8-channel and 4-channel, simultaneous sampling sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), respectively, with a Σ-Δ modulator and digital filter per channel, enabling synchronized sampling of ac and dc signals. The AD7768/AD7768-4 achieve 108 dB dynamic range at a maximum input bandwidth of 110.8 kHz, combined with typical performance of ±2 ppm INL, ±50 µV offset error, and ±30 ppm gain error. The AD7768/AD7768-4 user can trade off input bandwidth, output data rate, and power dissipation, and select one of three power modes to optimize for noise targets and power consumption. The flexibility of the AD7768/AD7768-4 allows them to become reusable platforms for low power dc and high performance ac measurement modules. 

The AD7768/AD7768-4 have three modes: fast mode (256 kSPS maximum, 110.8 kHz input bandwidth, 51.5 mW per channel), median mode (128 kSPS maximum, 55.4 kHz input bandwidth, 27.5 mW per channel) and eco mode (32 kSPS maximum, 13.8 kHz input bandwidth, 9.375 mW per channel). The AD7768/AD7768-4 offer extensive digital filtering capabilities, such as a wideband, low ±0.005 dB pass-band ripple, antialiasing low-pass filter with sharp roll-off, and 105 dB stop band attenuation at the Nyquist frequency. Frequency domain measurements can use the wideband linear phase filter. This filter has a flat pass band (±0.005 dB ripple) from dc to 102.4 kHz at 256 kSPS, from dc to 51.2 kHz at 128 kSPS, or from dc to 12.8 kHz at 32 kSPS. The AD7768/AD7768-4 also offer sinc response via a sinc5 filter, a low latency path for low bandwidth, and low noise measurements. The wideband and sinc5 filters can be selected and run on a per channel basis.
