14-Bit Pin Compatible Upgrade (AD7894)
The AD7895 is a fast 12-bit ADC that operates from a single
+5 V supply and is housed in a small 8-pin mini-DIP and 8-pin
SOIC. The part contains a 3.8 µs successive approximation A/D
converter, an on-chip track/hold amplifier, an on-chip clock and
a high speed serial interface.
Output data from the AD7895 is provided via a high speed,
serial interface port. This two-wire serial interface has a serial
clock input and a serial data output with the external serial clock
accessing the serial data from the part.
In addition to the traditional dc accuracy specifications such as
linearity and full-scale and offset errors, the AD7895 is specified
for dynamic performance parameters, including harmonic
distortion and signal-to-noise ratio.
The part accepts an analog input range of ±10 V (AD7895-10),
±2.5 V (AD7895-3), 0 V to 2.5 V (AD7895-2) and operates
from a single +5 V supply, consuming only 20 mW max.
The AD7895 features a high sampling rate mode and, for low
power applications, a proprietary automatic power-down mode
where the part automatically goes into power down once
conversion is complete and “wakes up” before the next conver-
The part is available in a small, 8-pin, 0.3" wide, plastic dual-in-
line package (mini-DIP) and in an 8-pin, small outline IC (SOIC).
1. Fast, 12-Bit ADC in 8-Pin Package
The AD7895 contains a 3.8 µs ADC, a track/hold amplifier,
control logic and a high speed serial interface, all in an 8-pin
package. This offers considerable space saving over alterna-
2. Low Power, Single Supply Operation
The AD7895 operates from a single +5 V supply and
consumes only 20 mW. The automatic power-down mode,
where the part goes into power-down once conversion is
complete and “wakes up” before the next conversion cycle,
makes the AD7895 ideal for battery-powered or portable
3. High Speed Serial Interface
The part provides high speed serial data and serial clock lines
allowing for an easy, two-wire serial interface arrangement.
