Analog Devices Inc. ADE7932/ADE7933 Isolated, Sigma Delta ADCs

Analog Devices Inc. ADE7932/ADE7933 Isolated Sigma-Delta Analog-to-Digital Converters (Σ-Δ ADCs) for polyphase energy metering applications that use shunt current sensors. ADE7932 features two 24-bit ADCs, while the ADE7933 features three 24-bit ADCs. One channel is dedicated to measuring the voltage across the shunt when a shunt is used for current sensing. This channel has a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 67dB over a 3.3kHz signal bandwidth. Up to two additional channels are dedicated to measuring voltages, which are usually sensed using resistor dividers. These channels provide an SNR of 75dB over a 3.3kHz signal bandwidth. One voltage channel can be used to measure the temperature of the die via an internal sensor. 

Based on proprietary iCoupler® technology, this DC-to-DC converter provides the regulated power required by the first stage of the ADCs at a 3.3V input supply. The ADE7933/ADE7932 eliminate the need for an external DC-to-DC isolation block. The iCoupler chip scale transformer technology is used to isolate the logic signals between the first and second stages of the ADC. The result is a small form factor, total isolation solution.
