10-Bit A/D Converter
Complete 10-Bit A/D Converter with Reference, Clock
Full 8- or 16-Bit Microprocessor Bus Interface
Fast Successive Approximation Conversion—20 s typ
No Missing Codes Over Temperature
Operates on +5 V and –12 V to –15 V Supplies
Low Cost Monolithic Construction
The AD573 is a complete 10-bit successive approximation
analog-to-digital converter consisting of a DAC, voltage refer-
ence, clock, comparator, successive approximation register
(SAR) and three state output buffers—all fabricated on a single
chip. No external components are required to perform a full
accuracy 10-bit conversion in 20 µs.
The AD573 incorporates advanced integrated circuit design and
processing technologies. The successive approximation function
is implemented with I2L (integrated injection logic). Laser trim-
ming of the high stability SiCr thin-film resistor ladder network
insures high accuracy, which is maintained with a temperature
compensated subsurface Zener reference.
Operating on supplies of +5 V and –12 V to –15 V, the AD573
will accept analog inputs of 0 V to +10 V or –5 V to +5 V. The
trailing edge of a positive pulse on the CONVERT line initiates
the 20 µs conversion cycle. DATA READY indicates completion
of the conversion. HIGH BYTE ENABLE (HBE) and LOW
BYTE ENABLE (LBE) control the 8-bit and 2-bit three state
The AD573 is available in two versions for the 0°C to +70°C
temperature range, the AD573J and AD573K. The AD573S
guarantees ± 1 LSB relative accuracy and no missing codes from
–55°C to +125°C.
Three package configurations are offered. All versions are offered
in a 20-pin hermetically sealed ceramic DIP. The AD573J and
AD573K are also available in a 20-pin plastic DIP or 20-pin
leaded chip carrier.

l. The AD573 is a complete 10-bit A/D converter. No external
components are required to perform a conversion.
2. The AD573 interfaces to many popular microprocessors
without external buffers or peripheral interface adapters. The
10 bits of output data can be read as a 10-bit word or as 8-
and 2-bit words.
3. The device offers true 10-bit accuracy and exhibits no miss-
ing codes over its entire operating temperature range.
4. The AD573 adapts to either unipolar (0 V to +10 V) or
bipolar (–5 V to +5 V) analog inputs by simply grounding or
opening a single pin.
5. Performance is guaranteed with +5 V and –12 V or –15 V
6. The AD573 is available in a version compliant with MIL-STD-
883. Refer to the Analog Devices Military Products Data-
book or current /883B data sheet for detailed specifications.
