Dual 24-Bit, Low-Power, High-SNR, 4ksps Delta-Sigma ADCs with Integrated PGAs

Industry's Only Dual 24-bit Sigma-Delta ADC for Seismic Applications

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX11284 is a dual 24-bit delta sigma ADC that achieves excellent SNR while dissipating a low 3.6mW per ADC. Precision DC and AC measurements can be made at sample rates up to 4ksps. Integral nonlinearity is guaranteed to 4ppm maximum and the THD is -120dB. The MAX11284 communicates through an SPI-compatible serial interface and is available in a small, 40-pin TQFN package.

The PGAs can operate in either low-noise (9.1nV/√Hz) or low-power (13.6nV/√Hz) mode, and have selectable gain values ranging from 1x to 128x. Optional buffers are also included to provide isolation of the signal inputs from the switched capacitor sampling network. This allows the ADCs to be used with high-impedance sources without compromising available dynamic range.

The MAX11284 operates from a single 2.7V to 3.6V analog supply, or split ±1.8V analog supplies, allowing the analog input to be sampled below ground. The digital supply range is 2.0V to 3.6V, allowing communication with 2.5V, 3V, or 3.3V logic.
