The AD7685 is a 16-bit, charge redistribution successive approximation, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) that operates from a single power supply, VDD, between 2.3 V to 5.5 V. It contains a low power, high speed, 16- bit sampling ADC with no missing codes, an internal conversion clock, and a versatile serial interface port. The part also contains a low noise, wide bandwidth, short aperture delay, track-and-hold circuit. On the CNV rising edge, it samples an analog input IN+ between 0 V to REF with respect to a ground sense IN−. The reference voltage, REF, is applied externally and can be set up to the supply voltage. Power dissipation scales linearly with throughput.
The SPI-compatible serial interface also features the ability, using the SDI input, to daisy chain several ADCs on a single 3-wire bus or provides an optional BUSY indicator. It is compatible with 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 3 V, or 5 V logic using the separate supply VIO.
The AD7685 is housed in a 10-lead MSOP or a 10-lead QFN (LFCSP) with operation specified from −40°C to +85°C.

EVAL-AD76XXCB 8/10-Pin Evaluation Board
The EVAL-AD76XXCB 8/10-Pin is an evaluation board for the AD768x/AD769x/AD794x/AD798x 8 and 10-pin PulSAR high resolution ADCs (see the Ordering Guide at the end of this document for a product list).
The evaluation board is designed to demonstrate the ADC’s performance and to provide an easy to understand interface for a variety of system applications.
The evaluation board is ideal for use with either Analog Devices EVAL-CONTROL BRD2/BRD3 (EVAL-CONTROL BRDx), DSP based controller board, to run the Analog devices evaluation software and to develop a specific application using LabVIEW, or as a stand- alone evaluation board.
The EVAL-CONTROL BRDx is sold separately from the evaluation board, is required to run the evaluation software, is not required in stand alone mode and can be reused with many Analog Devices ADCs.
EVAL-AD76XXCB 8/10-Pin Evaluation Board Key Features:
Versatile analog signal conditioning circuitry
On-board reference, crystal oscillator and buffers
16-bit Parallel Buffered Outputs
Ideal for DSP and data acquisition card interfaces
Analog and digital prototyping area for breadbording the
Stand-alone operation or Eval control board compatibility
PC software for control and data analysis

High speed and high CMRR precision analog front end for complete process control
Complete High Speed, High CMRR Precision Analog Front End for Process Control
Signal levels in industrial process control systems generally fall into one of the following categories: single-ended current (4 mA-to-20 mA), single-ended, differential voltage (0 V to 5V, 0 V to 10 V, ±5 V, ±10 V), or small signal inputs from sensors such as thermocouples or load cells. Large common-mode voltage swings are also typical, especially for small signal differential inputs; therefore good common-mode rejection is an important specification in the analog signal processing system.
The analog front-end circuit shown in Figure 1 is optimized for high precision and high common-mode rejection ratio (CMRR) when processing these types of industrial-level signals.
