16-bit ADC boasts 4MSPS throughput rate
The AD7386 successive-approximation register (SAR) analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) from Analog Devices is in stock at Mouser Electronics. Single-ended and function-compatible with AD7380 and AD7381 ADCs, the 16-bit AD7386 features a throughput rate of 4 megasamples per second (MSPS) and a tiny 3 × 3mm LFCSP package.
The dual simultaneous-sampling, high-speed ADC is ideal for motor control, sonar, power quality, and data acquisition applications.
The AD7386 contains two SAR ADCs, a multiplexer, a sequencer, and a serial interface with two separate data output pins.
Engineers can access data on the device via the serial interface, which can operate with one or two serial outputs.
The ADC features single-ended analogue inputs and operates from a 3.0V - 3.6V power supply, with a buffered internal 2.5V reference (optional external reference up to 3.3V) and typical drift of just ±1 ppm/°C.
