Intersil introduces new 24-bit ADCs with programmable gain amplifiers

Intersil Corporation, a manufacturer of analog, mixed signal and power management semiconductors, has introduced new integrated, low noise 24-bit ADCs, the ISL26102 and the ISL26104, with programmable gain amplifiers.

The ADCs' wide PGA gain range facilitates direct connection to load cells, thermocouples and other popular sensors with a wide variety of sensitivities.

The ISL26102 and ISL26104 provide two-channel and four-channel input multiplexers, respectively, and are designed for instrumentation such as weighing systems and temperature monitoring and control.

The ISL26102 and ISL26104 features low noise - less than 8nV/square root of Hertz at 128x gain; low Power - 50mW power dissipation during conversions and 1microampere shutdown mode; low side power switch lets users shut off load cell current to reduce consumption; ESD rating exceeds 8kV HBM; bidirectional SPI-compatible serial digital interfaces enables easy connection to an MCU or FPGA; and integration with Intersil's low-noise precision products.
