Data Acquisition Systems
The AD7450 is a 12-bit, high speed, low power, succes-
sive-approximation (SAR) analog-to-digital converter
featuring a fully differential analog input. It operates from
a single 3 V or 5 V power supply and features throughput
rates up to 833kSPS or 1MSPS respectively.
This part contains a low-noise, wide bandwidth, differen-
tial track and hold amplifier (T/H) which can handle
input frequencies in excess of 1MHz with the -3dB point
being 20MHz typically. The reference voltage for the
AD7450 is applied externally to the VREF pin and can be
varied from 100 mV to 2.5 V depending on the power
supply and to suit the application. The value of the refer-
ence voltage determines the common mode voltage range
of the part. With this truly differential input structure and
variable reference input, the user can select a variety of
input ranges and bias points.
The conversion process and data acquisition are controlled
using CS and the serial clock allowing the device to inter-
face with Microprocessors or DSPs. The input signals are
sampled on the falling edge of CS and the conversion is
also initiated at this point.

FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
The SAR architecture of this part ensures that there are
no pipeline delays.
The AD7450 uses advanced design techniques to achieve
very low power dissipation at high throughput rates.
1.Operation with either 3 V or 5 V power supplies.
2.High Throughput with Low Power Consumption.
With a 3V supply, the AD7450 offers 3mW typ power
consumption for 833kSPS throughput.
3.Fully Differential Analog Input.
4.Flexible Power/Serial Clock Speed Management.
The conversion rate is determined by the serial clock,
allowing the power to be reduced as the conversion time
is reduced through the serial clock speed increase. This
part also features a shutdown mode to maximize power
efficiency at lower throughput rates.
5.Variable Voltage Reference Input.
6.No Pipeline Delay.
7.Accurate control of the sampling instant via a CS input
and once off conversion control.
8. ENOB > 8 bits typ with 100mV Reference.
