MCP3912 ADC Evaluation Board

Part Number: ADM00499

Summary:

The MCP3912 ADC Evaluation Board system provides the opportunity to evaluate the performance of the MCP3912 four-channel Analog Front End (AFE). It also provides a development platform for 16-bit microcontroller-based applications, using the existing 100-pin PIC ® microcontroller Plug-in Module (PIM) systems that are compatible with Explorer 16 Evaluation Board (DM240001) and other high pin

Product Features

    • Four-channel ADC MCP3912 output display using serial communication to the PC software interface.
    • Simultaneous 57 ksps at OSR32 address loop ALL or 95 dB SINAD at OSR512 performance on MCP3912.
    • System and ADC performance analysis through graphical PC tools showing noise histogram, frequency domain (FFT), time domain scope plot, and statistical numerical analysis.
    • Robust hardware design with analog grounding and analog/digital separation, allowing low noise evaluation of the MCP3912 device; includes separate power supplies and power planes on a four-layer board.
    • PICtail™ Plus connectors for Explorer 16 daughter board compatibility.

Summary

The MCP3912 ADC Evaluation Board system provides the opportunity to evaluate the performance of the MCP3912 four-channel Analog Front End (AFE). It also provides a development platform for 16-bit microcontroller-based applications, using the existing 100-pin PIC ® microcontroller Plug-in Module (PIM) systems that are compatible with Explorer 16 Evaluation Board (DM240001) and other high pin count PIC-based demo boards. The system comes with a programmed PIC24FJ256GA110 PIM module that communicates with the Energy Management Utility software for data exchange and ADC setup. This software communicates via a USB connection to the board. A download link for this software can be found below. For instructions on the use of this software, refer to the supporting documentation included within the application installation package.
