Reference Filter Increases 32-Bit ADC SNR by 6dB

Guy Hoover - Applications Engineer Sep 26th 2017
Design Note DN568: Introduction Attaining optimal SNR performance from an ADC isn’t just a matter of providing a low noise signal to the ADC’s input. Providing a low noise reference voltage is just as important. While reference noise has no effect at zero-scale, at full-scale any noise on the reference will be visible ...

Wireless Current Sense Circuit Floats with Sense Resistor

Kris Lokere - Strategic Applications Manager Apr 25th 2017
Introduction Measuring the current that flows through a sense resistor seems easy. Amplify the voltage, read it with an ADC, and now you know what the current is. But it gets more difficult if the sense resistor itself sits at a voltage that is very different from system ground. Typical solutions bridge that voltage difference ...

Digital Gain Compression (DGC) for SAR ADCs

Mar 11th 2014
The LTC2378-20 offers a digital gain compression (DGC) feature which defines the full-scale input swing to be between 10% and 90% of the ±VREF analog input range. This feature allows the SAR ADC driver to be powered off of a single positive supply since each input swings between 0.5V and 4.5V as shown in the figure below. Needing ...

Can You Use the Voltage Reference to Power Your ADC Driver?

Kris Lokere - Strategic Applications Manager Jul 11th 2013
Linear Technology’s family of 16-, 18-, and 20-Bit SAR ADCs (LTC2378-20 family) operates with an external reference voltage of up to 5V. The largest input voltage that you are then supposed to put on each ADC input pin is equal to that 5V reference voltage. It seems logical to use an opamp on a 5V supply with rail-to-rail ...
