Hi, If the adc will survive, and if the adc will operate correctly is written in the datasheet. Klaus

Did you bias the 1V pk-pk signal around 1.65V? Your signal is well within the +/-1.25V range of the adc input. I also suspect you are interpreting the data wrong and it is the negative side that is missing, I'm not going to check but I would imaging that the adc uses a 2's complement output. Well I checked anyway (...)

by using difference amplifier will there be any adc value loss Applying 5V reference will necessarily result in not fully utilizing the adc range with 5V rail-to-rail OPs. Using higher OP supply voltage brings up a problem of violating the adc input voltage range. Best solution is probably a slightly lower Vref, e.g. 4 or (...)

## calculating ADC voltage divider maximum input voltage

Hi, I'm not getting the right voltage What can we know fro this infirmation? * is the result negative, positive? * is it too higb or too low? * does it differ 100% or 1% or only 0.01% --> the only way is to read the adc's datasheet. It telks you all you need to know. There are so many different adcs with so many different (...)

## dynamic range of an ADC

The maximum output of 5V is made of 2^ 12 steps, so a signal of less then one step will not produce an output. If you are measuring AC, then in the absence of an input signal you have to bias the input to + 2.5 V, so the input can go positive and negative from this value. Also the adc works on the peak (...)

## pic micro with in built differential adc

Do as Klaus suggests but also bear in mind that most PICs allow you to connect the positive and negative adc references to external pins. It might be possible to use the reference as a differential input and keep the actual adc input at a fixed voltage. I've never tried it but it sounds feasible. Brian.

Hello, YES ! Resolution = Vref/ N bits adc more datas ! the specsheet of adc

Your negative voltage has two wires, a negative output and a common output sometimes called "ground". If the circuits are not earthed then if you simply swap the wires then the negative wire can be the common input to the adc and the common wire can be a positive voltage input to the (...)

## Circuits for high voltage to ADC reading. Problem with simple voltage divider

You over complicate it! The output voltage of that circuit can never go negative because there is no negative voltage supplied to it, however, by biasing the + (non-inverting) input at half supply voltage, you have offset the output by 2.5V even when there is no input voltage. I think you are mistaking voltages below 2.5V (...)

Hold the Phone.... "RF devide" you mean RC divider. this adc does not do RF..... 200 kSPS is max

Hi y'all, I have a converter that is designed to output a -100V but now I find it challenging to read that on adc. My first approach was to use an inverting amplifier with a gain of 1, the problem is that i'm not sure if the op-amp will be able to handle 100V because most of the amplifiers are rated at low voltages. Can anyone help me on this. Tha

## Reading from Split core CT

C5/R15 will cause malfunction of the circuit. negative halfwaves are clipped by the input protection diode of the adc input. The most simple solution is to omit the highpass, send the 2.5V centered AC signal to the adc and process it in a suitable way. If you want to convert the AC current to a DC voltage (...)

## Voltage divider for ac

Surely the voltage divider will not treat positive and negative half cycle differently. I rather guess you didn't describe your setup well and have additional components connected to the voltage divider output. If you e.g. connect it to a 0-5 V adc input, the negative half cycle will be cut because it exceeds the (...)

## Plz help me to simulate CMOS Source-degeneration Gm-cell with NIC circuit in Virtuos

## analog high speed input to uc

No pins of 8051 can accept analog voltages. So you need an adc converter. If it is a matter of reading the applied voltage only, then why don't you rectify the supply. This way you can rule out the negative half cycle... Use a rectifier & a good filter, convert it in dc, read through adc, multiply by 44( if step down is 220v - 5v) & divide (...)

You need to reduce input voltage and shift by 1V to avoid negative values. Shift input voltage by adding a DC source of 1V, so new range will be 0 - 4V and then add a divider with factor 2, so new range will be 0 - 2V; with these range value can go to MAX1415; in software code need to take account these operation (shift and scaling). REF+ (...)

## ADC + Low freq input sampled at High freq problem

Hello , I am doing Image acquisition using Analog devices AD9643 Digitizer and HSC EVAL C Data Capture Board. I have 71 Khz low freq input square pulse ( +5 Volts and 0 volts TTL wave ) and clock square running at 100mhz. When I get the waveform using the software I see it looks like it is not pure signal anymore , it has negative parts like

You can see this things from Pico Tech company : I think that you should use RF probe on out of audio amplifier or you can use scope x10 probe just like Pico example, before speakers, and before amplifier on input its lower voltages you can use adc with some simple adapter, to monitor positive and negative values. If you plan to make some (...)

## Feeding negative volatage to AN1 of PIC micro

if you mean a 5K+1K divider then the ratio is 1K/(1K+5K) =1/6 so with 12v in you'll get 2v output. Have you applied the correct calculation for the current in the input from the OPAMP? (adc*3500)/1023 gives you the input voltage in mV but you need further calculations to get the current, you need to divide this with 5 to get the voltage at (...)

## MCP3424 negative input

One way to do it is to use an OP-amp connected as a summing amplifier and add some offset to get the output voltage for the zero point in the middle of the adc range.

## AD8138 Configuration for a negative input

You need to calculate the resistor ratios for correct gain and care for keeping the AD8138 permissible input voltage range. VCOM is solely commanded by the required adc common mode voltage.

## Providing common mode voltage to instrumentation amp

The schematic seems rather to confuse the original problem then clarifying anything. At least, it doesn't manage to generate a positive common mode voltage. As drawn, the negative adc input is connected to zero (virtual ground) and a negative offset given to the positive input. The supply voltage of the (...)

## Blocking Negative voltages to ADC

I don't get your problem clearly. If the input is -3.3V to 0V and you want the adc to read that as 0V to +3.3V, you can use a differential amplifier that has one input connected to ground and the other to the input. This will give you the difference between ground (0V) and the input source which will always (...)

I'm trying to input laptop's 3.5mm audio signal to pic18f452 adc, but I'm not sure what kind of ac voltage that plug outputs... I assume that would be something like -1,0V to 1,0V, also I've heard that negative reference voltage can't be below zero. So I'm planning to use a summing amplifier

## AC coupled input to ADC

Hi, I need to sample an analog AC signal ranging between -0.1V to 0.1V. I will take the digital ouput to an fpga, however Im having diffuculties in choosing the right adc, since nearly all of the ones I looked act as if they accept only positive voltages in single ended operation and choosing a negative input to V- in differential (...)

## Dac-vref connected to ground?

when the input will have the same voltage as the vref value the output will be all 1s (this depends on the adc and if it supports negative values). In general for a 10 bit adc you have 1023 different values so each step will be vref/1023 for example if vref=5v then 5/1023=0.0049v so if the input is (...)

## Is possible to ADC the negative voltage by PIC16F87x?

Hi, can 16F87X use +2.5 to be Vdd and -2.5 to be Vss ? Well, technically no. But......remember, A micro (or any voltage device) only really cares about voltage difference, theoretically you could drive the micro with VSS: -10v and VDD: -5v. So its powered with a difference of 5v. The only reason they are negati
