The ADS1287 device is a low-power, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), with an integrated programmable gain amplifier (PGA) and finite-impulse-response (FIR) digital filter. The ADC is suitable for the demanding needs of seismic equipment requiring precision digitizing with low power consumption.
The ADC features a programmable-gain, high-impedance complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) amplifier, suitable for direct connection of geophone and hydrophone sensors to the ADC over a wide range of input signals (±2.5 V to ±0.156 V).
The ADC incorporates a fourth-order, inherently stable, delta-sigma (ΔΣ) modulator. The modulator digital output is filtered and decimated by the internal FIR digital filter to yield the ADC conversion result.
The FIR digital filter provides data rates up to 1000 samples per second (SPS). The high-pass filter (HPF) removes DC and low frequency components from the conversion result. On-chip gain and offset scaling registers support system calibration.
Together, the amplifier, modulator, and digital filter dissipate 4.5 mW in high-resolution mode (2.4 mW in low-power mode). The ADC is packaged in a compact 5-mm × 4-mm VQFN package. The ADC is fully specified over the –40°C to +85°C temperature range.
