Current input module enables PCB space savings
A complete, high performance, current input module from Analog Devices is available at distributor Anglia Components.
The ADA4355 offers a significant PCB space savings vs. discrete solutions.
It includes all the required active and passive components to realise a complete current to bits data acquisition solution, supporting a small form factor, optical modules as well as multichannel systems.
The device is supported by the EVAL-ADA4355 evaluation system that allows designers to evaluate the features and performance of the ADA4355 high performance, current input uModule.
The system couples the Analog Devices ADA4355 evaluation board to a Xilinx KC705 FPGA evaluation platform and provides ample memory, GPIOs and processing power to perform all control and data manipulation functions.
All evaluation system control and data processing is easily accomplished via a MATLAB-based, highly intuitive graphical user interface
The ADA4355 is suitable for a range of applications where monitoring or measurement of small and high speed currents is required, such as those from photodetectors.
These include current to voltage conversion, chemical analysers, mass spectroscopy, time of flight, fibre optic sensing and optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDR).
