+5V, 18-Bit, Low-Power, Multichannel, Oversampling (Sigma-Delta) ADC

Best Linearity for +5V, 18-Bit Sigma Delta

Product Details

The MAX1402 low-power, multichannel, serial-output analog-to-digital converter (ADC) features matched 200µA current sources for sensor excitation. This ADC uses a sigma-delta modulator with a digital decimation filter to achieve 16-bit accuracy. The digital filter’s user-selectable decimation factor allows the conversion resolution to be reduced in exchange for a higher output data rate. True 16-bit performance is achieved at an output data rate of up to 480sps. In addition, the modulator sampling frequency may be optimized for either lowest power dissipation or highest throughput rate. The MAX1402 operates from a +5V supply.

This device offers three fully differential input channels that may be independently programmed with a gain between +1V/V and +128V/V. Furthermore, it can compensate an input-referred DC offset up to 117% of the selected full-scale range. These three differential channels may also be configured to operate as five pseudo-differential input channels. Two additional, fully differential system-calibration channels are provided for gain and offset error correction.

The MAX1402 may be configured to sequentially scan all signal inputs and provide the results via the serial interface with minimum communications overhead. When used with a 2.4576MHz or 1.024MHz master clock, the digital decimation filter can be programmed to produce zeros in its frequency response at the line frequency and associated harmonics, ensuring excellent line rejection without the need for further post-filtering.

The MAX1402 is available in a 28-pin SSOP package.

Description

The MAX1402 evaluation system (EV system) is a complete, multichannel data-acquisition system consisting of a MAX1402 evaluation kit (EV kit), Maxim 68HC16 microcontroller (µC) module, and USBTO232. The MAX1402 is a low-power, multichannel, serial-output analog to digital converter (ADC). Windows® 98/2000/XP-compatible software provides a handy user interface to exercise the MAX1402's features. Source code in C++ and 68HC11 assembly language is provided for the low-level portion of the software.

Order the EV system for comprehensive evaluation of the MAX1402 using a personal computer. Order only the EV kit if the 68HC16 µC module has already been purchased with a previous Maxim EV system, or for custom use in other µC-based systems.

The MAX1402 EV kit and EV system can also be used to evaluate the MAX1400. Simply order a free sample of the MAX1400CAI along with the MAX1402 EV kit.

MAX1402 Stand-Alone EV Kit
The MAX1402 EV kit provides a proven printed-circuit board (PCB) layout to facilitate evaluation of the MAX1402 with user-supplied software and hardware. It must be interfaced to appropriate timing signals for proper operation. Refer to the MAX1402 IC data sheet for timing requirements. See Table 2 in the full data sheet, Jumper Functions.

MAX1402 EV System
The MAX1402 EV system operates from a user-supplied +8V to +12VDC power supply.
