Streamline the signal chain in factory automation

MicroCrystal RV-8803 – A Really Accurate RTC June 17, 2019- RTC chips traditionally were the domain of Maxim and NXP. Switzerland-based MicroCrystal recently made quite a buzz with its RV-8803, which offers simple integration, an I2C interface and extreme accuracy. Let us start out by looking at a system overview. Figure one shows how this I2C RTC is made up internally – interested observers note […]
Analog Devices’ LTM2887 – If a Digital Bus Needs Galvanic Isolation June 15, 2019- In theory, digital buses are intended to connect things to one another. Sadly, one sometimes wants but a logical connection – in many cases, galvanic isolation helps out. Should you ever feel like isolating very fast buses, definitely give the LTM2887 a chance. From a technical point of view, Linear Technologies attempt at entering the […]
AVAGO APDS-9008 or APDS-9005-020 – Keeping an Eye on Ambient Light June 14, 2019- Recent times saw quite a bit of interest for part numbers such as the APDS-9008 or APDS-9005-020 – they are a very interesting type of ambient light sensor. One of the oldest questions in regards to light sensors involves their spectral sensitivity. If a part is to output but one voltage level, the conversion between […]

Simplify precision measurements of ±20 mV to ±20 V FSR with the ADS125H02 – the first high-input impedance delta-sigma ADC

The ADS125H02 is a ±20-V input, 24-bit, delta-sigma (ΔΣ) analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The ADC features a low-noise programmable gain amplifier (PGA), an internal reference, clock oscillator, and signal or reference out-of-range monitors.

The integration of a wide input range, ±18-V PGA and an ADC into a single package reduces board area up to 50% compared to discrete solutions.

Programmable gain of 0.125 to 128 (corresponding to an equivalent input range from ±20 V to ±20 mV) eliminates the need for an external attenuator or external gain stages. 1-GΩ minimum input impedance reduces error caused by sensor loading. Additionally, the low noise and low drift performance allow direct connections to bridge, resistance temperature detector (RTD), and thermocouple sensors.

The digital filter attenuates 50-Hz and 60-Hz line cycle noise for data rates ≤ 50 SPS or 60 SPS to reduce measurement error. The filter also provides no-latency conversion data for high data throughput during channel sequencing.

The ADS125H02 is housed in a 5-mm × 5-mm VQFN package and is fully specified over the –40°C to +125°C temperature range.
