Low-Power, 4-/8-/12-Channel, I2C,10-Bit ADCs in Ultra-Small Packages

Lowest Power, Smallest Area, I2C, 4-/8-/12-Channel ADCs with Internal Reference

Product Details

The MAX11606–MAX11611 low-power, 10-bit, multichannel analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) feature internal track/hold (T/H), voltage reference, clock, and an I2C-compatible 2-wire serial interface. These devices operate from a single supply of 2.7V to 3.6V (MAX11607/MAX11609/MAX11611) or 4.5V to 5.5V (MAX11606/MAX11608/MAX11610) and require only 670µA at the maximum sampling rate of 94.4ksps. Supply current falls below 230µA for sampling rates under 46ksps. AutoShutdown™ powers down the devices between conversions, reducing supply current to less than 1µA at low throughput rates. The MAX11606/MAX11607 have 4 analog input channels each, the MAX11608/MAX11609 have 8 analog input channels each, while the MAX11610/MAX11611 have 12 analog input channels each. The fully differential analog inputs are software configurable for unipolar or bipolar, and single ended or differential operation.

The full-scale analog input range is determined by the internal reference or by an externally applied reference voltage ranging from 1V to VDD. The MAX11607/MAX11609/MAX11611 feature a 2.048V internal reference and the MAX11606/MAX11608/MAX11610 feature a 4.096V internal reference.

The MAX11606/MAX11607 are available in an 8-pin µMAX® package. The MAX11607 is also available in an ultra-small 1.9mm x 2.2mm WLP package. The MAX11608–MAX11611 are available in a 16-pin QSOP package. The MAX11606–MAX11611 are guaranteed over the extended temperature range (-40°C to +85°C). For pin-compatible 12-bit parts, refer to the MAX11612–MAX11617 data sheet. For pin-compatible 8-bit parts, refer to the MAX11600–MAX11605 data sheet.

Description

The MAX11600–MAX11617 evaluation system (EV system) includes one master board and one of six EV kit daughter boards. The EV system also includes Windows® 2000-, Windows XP®-, and Windows Vista®-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the MAX11600–MAX11617. The MAX116XXI2CMB+ master board connects to a PC USB port and allows the transfer of I²C commands to the corresponding EV kit daughter board.

The EV kit daughter boards are fully assembled and tested PCBs that demonstrate the capabilities of the MAX11600–MAX11617 4-/8-/12-channel, 8-/10-/12-bit, 3V/5V, low-power, high-speed I²C ADCs with internal reference.

Each EV kit daughter board evaluates three different ADCs, but only the ADC referenced in the EV kit daughter board part name is installed on the board. Contact the factory for free samples of the other pin-compatible ADCs to evaluate these devices or to order individual boards.
