2 /PRNewswire/ -- A new fully differential amplifier family from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) drives the highest accuracy data conversion across single- and multi-channel successive approximation register (SAR) and delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) in a wide range of applications, including industrial, medical and audio.
The analog functions on the IC include differential amplifier, dual sample and hold circuits and a 12-bit A/D converter to sample the low-voltage signal across the DC link shunt.
For example, the ADC16V130 can be teamed with the LMH6517 DVGA or the recently released LMH6554 fully differential amplifier, along with the LMX2531 single-chip phase-locked loop (PLL) and voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) or one of National's LMK04000 family of clock jitter cleaners to form a complete signal path solution.
