Analog Devices Inc. ADA4350 AFE with ADC Driver

Analog Devices ADA4350 Analog Front End (AFE) with ADC driver is designed to interface directly with current mode sensors in voltage input applications that require the designer to select between very precise gain levels to maximize the dynamic range or whose output has a current proportional to the sensed parameter. ADA4350 integrates a FET input amplifier, a gain switching network, and an ADC driver into a single IC. Designers can control all functions via a serial peripheral interface (SPI) or parallel control logic. 

ADA4350's switching network allows the designer to select up to six different externally configurable feedback networks. Using external components for the feedback network, the designer can more easily match the system to the required photodetector or sensor capacitance. The design of the switches minimizes error sources so that they add virtually no error in the signal path. Designers can use the output driver in either single-ended or a differential mode. With its low-noise performance at low frequencies of 90nV/√Hz at 10Hz and broadband noise of 5nV/√Hz at 100kHz, the ADA4350 is an excellent choice for a wide range of photodetectors, high output impedance voltage sensors, and precision data acquisition systems.
