Analog Devices Inc. AD1974 24-Bit ADCs

Analog Devices AD1974 24-Bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) are single-chip, high-performance ADCs offering four ADCs with differential inputs developed using patented multi-bit sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) architecture. AD1974's system and circuit design architectures were developed with EMI in mind. The ADCs are designed using the latest continuous-time architectures from Analog Devices to minimize EMI.

Designers can use the onboard phase-locked loop (PLL) to derive the master clock from the LR clock or from an external crystal. This design eliminates the need for a separate high-frequency master clock and allows the device to be used with a suppressed bit clock.

TheAD1974 ADCs operate from 3.3V digital and analog supplies to minimize power consumption and reduce emissions. AD1974's SPI port allows a microcontroller to enable mutes as well as adjust many other parameters. The AD1974 ADCs are ideal for automotive audio systems, home theater systems, set-top processors, and digital audio effects processors.

Evaluation Tools

EVAL-AD1974AZ Evaluation board for the Analog Devices AD1974 24-Bit ADCs.

EVAL-ADUSB2EBZ USBi “USB Interface” board. Interfaces between the PC's USB port and SigmaDSP hardware's data input pins. The EVAL-ADUSB2EBZ board is capable of both SPI and I²C communication (which is user selectable). The board can also supply IOVDD of either 3.3V or 1.8V. The USBi interface is powered from the computer's USB port.
