The ADS1246, ADS1247, and ADS1248 devices are precision, 24-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that include many integrated features to reduce system cost and component count for sensor measurement applications. The devices feature a 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 devices also provide a built-in, low-drift voltage reference, and two matched programmable excitation current sources (IDACs).
An input multiplexer supports four differential inputs for the ADS1248, two for the ADS1247, and one for the ADS1246. In addition, the multiplexer integrates sensor burn-out detection, voltage bias for thermocouples, system monitoring, and general purpose digital I/Os (ADS1247 and ADS1248). The PGA provides selectable gains up to 128 V/V. These features provide a complete front-end solution for temperature sensor measurement applications including thermocouples, thermistors, and resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) and other small signal measurements including resistive bridge sensors. The digital filter settles in a single cycle to support fast channel cycling when using the input multiplexer and provides data rates up to 2 kSPS. For data rates of 20 SPS or less, both 50-Hz and 60-Hz interference are rejected by the filter.
