Features, Applications

o 8-Channel Single-Ended or 4-Channel Differential Inputs o Single-Supply Operation (MAX147) o Internal 2.5V Reference (MAX146) o Low Power (133ksps, 3V supply) (1ksps, 3V supply) 1A (power-down mode) SPI/QSPI/MICROWIRE/TMS320-Compatible 4-Wire Serial Interface o Software-Configurable Unipolar or Bipolar Inputs o 20-Pin DIP/SSOP Packages

The MAX146/MAX147 12-bit data-acquisition systems combine an 8-channel multiplexer, high-bandwidth track/hold, and serial interface with high conversion speed and low power consumption. The MAX146 operates from a single to +3.6V supply; the MAX147 operates from a single to +5.25V supply. Both devices' analog inputs are software configurable for unipolar/bipolar and single-ended/differential operation. The 4-wire serial interface connects directly to SPITM/ QSPITM and MICROWIRETM devices without external logic. A serial strobe output allows direct connection to TMS320-family digital signal processors. The MAX146/MAX147 use either the internal clock or an external serial-interface clock to perform successive-approximation analog-to-digital conversions. The MAX146 has an internal 2.5V reference, while the MAX147 requires an external reference. Both parts have a reference-buffer amplifier with a 1.5% voltageadjustment range. These devices provide a hard-wired SHDN pin and a software-selectable power-down, and can be programmed to automatically shut down at the end of a conversion. Accessing the serial interface automatically powers up the MAX146/MAX147, and the quick turn-on time allows them to be shut down between all conversions. This technique can cut supply current to under 60A at reduced sampling rates. The MAX146/MAX147 are available in 20-pin DIP and SSOP packages. For 4-channel versions of these devices, see the MAX1246/MAX1247 data sheet.
