Data acquisition systems
The AD7440/AD7450A1 are 10-bit and 12-bit high speed, low
power, successive approximation (SAR) analog-to-digital
converters with a fully differential analog input. These parts
operate from a single 3 V or 5 V power supply and use
advanced design techniques to achieve very low power
dissipation at throughput rates up to 1 MSPS. The SAR
architecture of these parts ensures that there are no pipeline
The parts contain a low noise, wide bandwidth, differential
track-and-hold amplifier (T/H) that can handle input
frequencies up to 3.5 MHz. The reference voltage is applied
externally to the VREF pin and can be varied from 100 mV to
3.5 V depending on the power supply and what suits the
application. The value of the reference voltage determines the
common-mode voltage range of the part. With this truly
differential input structure and variable reference input, the
user can select a variety of input ranges and bias points.
The conversion process and data acquisition are controlled
using CS and the serial clock, allowing the device to interface
with microprocessors or DSPs. The input signals are sampled

on the falling edge of CS; the conversion is also initiated at this
point. The SAR architecture of these parts ensures that there are
no pipeline delays. The AD7440 and the AD7450A use advanced

1. Operation with either 3 V or 5 V power supplies.
2. High throughput with low power consumption.
With a 3 V supply, the AD7440/AD7450A offer 4 mW
max power consumption for 1 MSPS throughput.
3. Fully differential analog input.
4. Flexible power/serial clock speed management.
The conversion rate is determined by the serial clock,
allowing the power to be reduced as the conversion time
is reduced through the serial clock speed increase. These
parts also feature a shutdown mode to maximize power
efficiency at lower throughput rates.
5. Variable voltage reference input.
6. No pipeline delay.
7. Accurate control of the sampling instant via a CS input and
once-off conversion control.
8. ENOB > eight bits typically with 100 mV reference.
