6-Channel 16-bit 500kSPS A/D & D/A

The D.Module2.ADDA500K16 is an A/D, D/A converter daughter card for the D.Module2 family of DSP Computer Modules. Main application areas are fast control loops, servo positioning, power-line monitoring, and automatic test equippment.

The design uitlizes a 6-channel ADS8556 A/D converter and a DAC8822 D/A converter. The ADC frontend simultaneously samples up to 6 single-ended inputs or three differential inputs

The full-scale input range is programmable from ±1V to ±3V. (15V OEM option: ±1 to ±12.5V). The inputs are protected against over-voltages up to 40V. Internal and external calibration options are provided.

Conversion start can be generated internally (programmable sampling frequency) or driven by an external input. The D/A converters operate either synchronized to the A/D converters or independently. The outputs are ±2.5V single-ended.
