TI says 16-bit ADC is 70 percent smaller than competition

Dallas—Designed for portable industrial and consumer applications, Texas Instruments Inc.'s family of 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) is packaged in a leadless QFN measuring 2.0 x 1.5 x 0.4 mm, which it says is 70 percent smaller than the nearest competition.

In addition to system space savings, the ADS1115 family provides product options for scalable integration to reduce component count and simplify design. This family supports battery monitoring, portable instrumentation, industrial process control, smart transmitters, medical instrumentation and other industrial and consumer systems.

Designed for precision, power efficiency and ease of implementation, the ADS1115 family performs conversions at programmable data rates up to 860 samples per second (SPS), consuming 150 µA (typical) of supply current and operating down to 2 V.

The ADS1115 is the most highly integrated member of the new family, incorporating an oscillator, low-drift reference, programmable gain amplifier, comparator and four-channel input multiplexer into a tiny package. This family also includes 12-bit versions for increased flexibility.

Pricing: The ADS1115 starts at $2.25 in quantities of 1,000 units. The ADS1114 starts at $2.00 and the ADS1113 starts at $1.85.
Availability: Now from TI and its authorized distributors.
