Low-Power ADC ICs

A "low power" analog-to-digital converter (ADC) consumes less power than most of other similar products on the market for a given application. There isn't a power specification that immediately qualifies an ADC as a low-power product because various applications and architectures have different thresholds for what is considered low power. This page highlights Maxim's lowest power ADCs for many applications.

It is very difficult to select a "low power" product from a parametric table because for most ADCs the power requirements scale with sampling rate. A product that uses very low power at low sampling rates can also consume high power when it is used at high sampling rates.

The links below refer to Maxim's lowest power ADCs and are recommended for use in portable, handheld products, or battery powered designs. Because their power usage is generally scalable with sampling rate, the designer will generally select the lowest sampling rate to meet the design specification in order to conserve power.

Low-Power High-End SAR ADCs 
Low-Power High-End Sigma Delta ADC 
Low-Power Mid-Range ADCs 

Here is a sampling of Maxim's best low-power ADCs:
