THEORY OF OPERATION
Refer to the functional block diagram. The AD10242 employs
three monolithic ADI components per channel (AD9632, OP279,
and AD9042), along with multiple passive resistor networks
and decoupling capacitors to fully integrate a complete 12-bit
The input signal is first passed through a precision laser trimmed
resistor divider, allowing the user to externally select operation
with a full-scale signal of
±0.5 V, ±1.0 V, or ±2.0 V by choosing
the proper input terminal for the application. The result of
the resistor divider is to apply a full-scale input of approximately
0.4 V to the noninverting input of the internal AD9632 amplifier.
The AD9632 provides the dc-coupled level shift circuit required
for operation with the AD9042 ADC. Configuring the amplifier
in a noninverting mode, the ac signal gain can be trimmed to
provide a constant input to the ADC centered around the inter-
nal reference voltage of the AD9042. This allows the converter
to be used in multiple system applications without the need for
external gain and level shift circuitry normally requiring trim.
The AD9632 was chosen for its superior ac performance and
input drive capabilities. These two specifications have limited
the ability of many amplifiers to drive high performance ADCs.
As new amplifiers are developed, pin compatible improve-
ments are planned to incorporate the latest operational ampli-
The OP279 provides the buffer and inversion of the internal
reference of the AD9042 in order to supply the summing node
of the AD9632 input amplifier. This dc voltage is then summed
with the input voltage and applied to the input of the AD9042
ADC. The reference voltage of the AD9042 is designed to track
internal offsets and drifts of the ADC and is used to ensure
matching over an extended temperature range of operation.
APPLYING THE AD10242
Encoding the AD10242
The AD10242 is designed to interface with TTL and CMOS
logic families. The source used to drive the ENCODE pin(s)
must be clean and free from jitter. Sources with excessive jitter
will limit SNR and overall performance.
TTL OR CMOS
Figure 6. Single-Ended TTL/CMOS Encode
The AD10242 encode inputs are connected to a differential
input stage (see Figure 4). With no input connected to either
the ENCODE or
ENCODE input, the voltage dividers bias the
inputs to 1.6 V. For TTL or CMOS usage, the encode source
should be connected to ENCODE (Pins 29 and/or 51).
(Pins 28 and/or 52) should be decoupled using a low inductance
or microwave chip capacitor to ground. Devices such as AVX
05085C103MA15, a 0.01
µF capacitor, work well.
It is possible to improve the performance of the AD10242
slightly by taking advantage of the internal characteristics of the
amplifier and converter combination. By increasing the 5 V
supply slightly, the user may be able to gain up to a 5 dB improve-
ment in SFDR over the entire frequency range of the converter.
It is not recommended to exceed 5.5 V on the analog supplies
since there are no performance benefits beyond that range and
care should be taken to avoid the absolute maximum ratings.
