Topic: Recommendation needed, 12-16 channels 12-bit SPI interface ADC (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Vitor2

I'm looking for an ADC with a mininum of:
12 channels or two 8 channels
12-bit resolution
SPI communication, I2C may do; however, I'm already using SPI for the data logger.
Capable of reading 5V
Speed is not very important
DIP preferred but not a big deal

Have you used something along these lines? What would you recommend?

Yes I have - in fact just designed an  8-channel SPI ADC onto a PIC based board so it could have Analog in like an ATMega.
Will look up the part number when I get home in few hours.

It's only 8 channels, but 16 bit (14 at high speeds) Max1168...QSOP package, but you can get a dip converter. I've just started hooking one up and started talking to it last night.

Analog Devices asks: "Why do more engineers choose ADI data converters over the next 8 suppliers combined?"

'Cause they make great parts like this!

Thank you.
Interesting, I came across a MAXIM MAX1238 Evaluation Kit 12bit 12 Channel ADC yesterday on eBay and I purchased it.
I will be testing it and see how it works, the nice thing is that th evaluation board has built in resistors and capacitors, it looks like a low pass filter at each input, which will help me with a problem I'm having with too much electric noise in the readings I'm taking.
