The ADS1246, ADS1247, and ADS1248 are highly-integrated, precision, 24-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The ADS1246/7/8 feature an onboard, low-noise, programmable gain amplifier (PGA), a precision delta-sigma (ΔΣ) ADC with a single-cycle settling digital filter, and an internal oscillator. The ADS1247 and ADS1248 also provide a built-in, very low drift voltage reference with 10mA output capacity, and two matched programmable current digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The ADS1246/7/8 provide a complete front-end solution for temperature sensor applications including thermal couples, thermistors, and RTDs.
An input multiplexer supports four differential inputs for the ADS1248, two for the ADS1247, and one for the ADS1246. In addition, the multiplexer has a sensor burnout detect, voltage bias for thermocouples, system monitoring, and general-purpose digital I/Os (ADS1247 and ADS1248). The onboard, low-noise PGA provides selectable gains of 1 to 128. The ΔΣ modulator and adjustable digital filter settle in only one cycle, for fast channel cycling when using the input multiplexer, and support data rates up to 2kSPS. For data rates of 20SPS or less, both 50Hz and 60Hz interference are rejected by the filter.
The ADS1246 is offered in a small TSSOP-16 package, the ADS1247 is available in a TSSOP-20 package, and the ADS1248 in a TSSOP-28 package. All three devices are rated over the extended specified temperature range of –40°C to +105°C.
