Digital Multiplexing: Three-State Outputs
18-Pin Ceramic DIP
Low Cost Monolithic Construction
The AD571 is an 10-bit successive approximation A/D con-
verter consisting of a DAC, voltage reference, clock, compara-
tor, successive approximation register and output buffers—all
fabricated on a single chip. No external components are re-
quired to perform a full accuracy 10-bit conversion in 40 µs.
Operating on supplies of +5 V to +15 V and –15 V, the
AD571 will accepts analog inputs of 0 V to +10 V unipolar of
± 5 V bipolar, externally selectable. When the BLANK and
CONVERT input is driven low, the three-state outputs will be
open and a conversion will commence. Upon completion of the
conversion, the DATA READY line goes low and the data ap-
pears at the output. Pulling the BLANK and CONVERT input
high blanks the outputs and readies the device for the next con-
version. The AD571 executes a true 10-bit conversion with no
missing codes in 40 µs maximum.
The AD571 is available in two version for the 0°C to +70°C
temperature range, the AD571J and K. The AD571S guarantees
10-bit accuracy and no missing codes from –55°C to +125°C.

1. The AD571 is a complete 10-bit A/D converter. No external
components are required to perform a conversion. Full-scale
calibration accuracy of ± 0.3% is achieved without external
2. The AD571 is a single chip device employing the most ad-
vanced IC processing techniques. Thus, the user has at his
disposal a truly precision component with the reliability and
low cost inherent in monolithic construction,
3. The AD571 accepts either unipolar (0 V to +10 V) or bipolar
(–5 V to +5 V) analog inputs by grounding or opening a
4. The device offers true 10-bit accuracy and exhibits no miss-
ing codes over its entire operating temperature range.
5. Operation is guaranteed with –15 V and +5 V or +15 V sup-
plies. The device will also operate with a –12 V supply.
