The ADE7903 is a nonisolated, 3-channel, Σ-Δ analog-to-digital
converter (ADC) for the neutral line of polyphase energy
metering applications using shunt current sensors. The
ADE7903 can also be used for single-phase energy metering
and other standalone ADC applications. The ADE7903 features
three 24-bit ADCs. The current ADC provides a 67 dBFS
signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) over a 3.3 kHz signal bandwidth,
whereas the voltage ADCs provide an SNR of 72 dBFS over the
same bandwidth. One channel is dedicated to measuring the
voltage across a shunt when the shunt is used for current sensing.
Up to two additional channels are dedicated to measuring
voltages, which are usually sensed using resistor dividers.
One voltage channel can be used to measure the temperature
of the die via an internal sensor. The ADE7903 includes three
channels: one current channel and two voltage channels.
Together with the ADE7912/ADE7913, the ADE7903 provides
a small form factor, 3-phase isolated solution with a neutral

The ADE7903 configuration and status registers are accessed
via a bidirectional SPI serial port for easy interfacing with
The ADE7903 can be clocked from a crystal or an external
clock signal. To minimize the system bill of materials, the
master ADE7912/ADE7913 can drive the clocks of up to three
additional ADE7912/ADE7913 or ADE7903 devices.
Multiple ADE7912/ADE7913 and ADE7903 devices can be
synchronized to sample at the same moment and provide
coherent outputs. The ADE7903 can also be used individually
as a standalone ADC.
The ADE7903 is available in a 20-lead, Pb-free, wide body SOIC
