MANSFIELD, Mass., 17 Feb. 2014. The DATEL Business Unit of Murata Power Solutions in Mansfield, Mass., is introducing the ADC-85 series of analog-to-digital (A/D) converters for aerospace, military, and commercial embedded computing applications.

The A/D converters are available in three temperature ranges: 0 to degrees Celsius; -40 to 100 C; and -55 to 125 C. The device is available in commercial as well as military/high-reliability temperature versions.

The ADC-85 series are 12-bit, 8-microsecond-conversion-time A/D converters housed in a hermetically sealed 32-pin side-brazed DDIP or gull-wing SMT ceramic package.

The ADC-85 has five analog input ranges and offers parallel and serial digital outputs. It can be short-cycled to give faster conversions in lower-resolution applications.

Benefits include an internal buffer amplifier for applications in which high input impedance is required. Output coding is complementary binary, complementary offset binary, or complementary two's complement.

With differential and integral non-linearity specifications, the ADC-85 is pin-for-pin compatible with the ADC84, ADC85, MNADC87, HSADC85, and MNADC85 series.
