Next-Generation SAR ADC Addresses Pain Points of Precision Data Acquisition Signal Chain Design

Next-Generation SAR ADC Addresses Pain Points of Precision Data Acquisition Signal Chain DesignThis article discusses the common pain points encountered in designing a precision data acquisition signal chain and how to address them using the next generation of 16-/18-bit, 2 MSPS, precision successive approximation register (SAR) ADCs. Designed using ADI’s advanced technology, the AD4000/ AD4003 (16-/18-bit) ADC incorporates ease of use features that offer a multitude of system-level benefits that help to lower the signal chain power, reduce signal chain complexity, and enable higher channel density while pushing the performance level higher.
