Analog Monitor (MONx/AMONx) Pin Review

The following list provides analog monitor (MONx/AMONx) pin information:

  • Internal or external voltage reference is used by ADC to monitor the external signal. Be sure to have the proper voltage divider to limit the input signal.
  • Table 1. UCD90xxx Voltage References

    UCD90240, UCD90320 and UCD90320U Remaining UCD90xxx Devices
    Internal Voltage Reference V33D 2.5 V
    External Voltage Reference 2.4–3 V N/A
  • When a digital signal is connected to the analog monitor (MONx/AMONx) pin, please check the logic level of the input signal to see whether it is over the voltage reference
  • TI recommends having a 10-nF to 100-nF decoupling capacitor close to the analog monitor (MONx/AMONx) pin to remove rail ripple voltage
  • For UCD90240,UCD90320 and UCD90320U, TI recommends maintaining at least a 200-Ω resistance between a low-impedance analog input and an AMON pin. For example, when monitoring a rail voltage without a resistor divider, place a 200-Ω resistor in series between the rail output and AMON pin, as shown in Figure 2.
  • Ground unused MONx/AMONx pins to save power consumption and decrease EMI.
