Driving High Resolution SAR ADCs

Tyler Hutchison - Signal Conditioning Design Engineer Sep 8th 2015

Driving high resolution SAR ADCs often requires tradeoffs between power consumption, linearity, and noise.  The LTC6363 provides 20 bit accuracy when the system designer pays close attention to the interface filter between the driver and the ADC.  Calculations and empirical data provide additional insight as to how to drive high resolution SAR ADCs with low power amplifiers.

This video explores a number of tradeoffs when driving high resolution ADCs and discusses ways to combat these issues.
