FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
The AD673 is a complete 8-bit successive approximation
analog-to-digital converter consisting of a DAC, voltage refer-
ence, clock, comparator, successive approximation register
(SAR) and 3-state output buffers—all fabricated on a single
chip. No external components are required to perform a full ac-
curacy 8-bit conversion in 20 µs.
The AD673 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 sub-surface Zener reference.
Operating on supplies of +5 V and –12 V to –15 V, the AD673
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 comple-
tion of the conversion.
The AD673 is available in two versions. The AD673J as speci-
fied over the 0°C to +70°C temperature range and the AD673S
guarantees ± 1/2 LSB relative accuracy and no missing codes
from –55°C to +125°C.
Two package configurations are offered. All versions are also of-
fered in a 20-pin hermetically sealed ceramic DIP. The AD673J
is also available in a 20-pin plastic DIP.

1. The AD673 is a complete 8-bit A/D converter. No external
components are required to perform a conversion.
2. The AD673 interfaces to many popular microprocessors
without external buffers or peripheral interface adapters.
3. The device offers true 8-bit accuracy and exhibits no missing
codes over its entire operating temperature range.
4. The AD673 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 AD673 is available in a version compliant with MIL-
STD-883. Refer to the Analog Devices Military Products
