LTRIM 10-bit, A-to-D Block Ideal for Low-power, Muxed Input Apps

MONTREAL, QC, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ - LTRIM today announced the LTR9200- T18, a 10-bit, low-power, Successive Approximation Register (SAR) Analog-to- Digital Converter (ADC) Intellectual Property (IP) block. LTRIM designed this new mega- sample converter block specifically to meet the requirements of portable, battery-powered systems. With eight multiplexed inputs and integrated sample- and-hold, the LTR9200-T18 is an ideal, cost-effective IP component for chip designers who need fast sampling of multiple analog sources.

"With one LSB max Differential Nonlinearity (DNL) and Integral Nonlinearity (INL), our new 10-bit A-to-D block is both fast and dependably accurate," said Mike Shamshirian, LTRIM Vice president of Corporate Sales. "Moreover, it draws only a couple milliamps, making it ideal for low-power, muxed input designs like sensor interfaces in a variety of vertical application markets." LTRIM specializes in high-performance power management and other analog IP solutions that integrate into mixed-signal system-on-chips (SoCs) and other analog chips.

    - Fast throughput rate of 1 MSPS

    - Low power consumption: 3.3V for analog and 1.8V for digital; 2mA of
      current in active mode; 100nA in shutdown mode

    - Built-in sample and hold circuitry with offset calibration

    - Configurable multiplexed, analog inputs: eight single-ended inputs or
      four fully differential inputs

    - Industrial temp range: -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C

Typical applications for the new LTR9200-T18 include sensor interface/data acquisition, automotive sensors, multi-sensor wireless networks, building/home control, high-end mobile phones, biomedical devices/industrial automation, and battery powered, and handheld systems.

The IP block is designed in TSMC 0.18-micron CMOS technology and can be retargeted to other foundry process technologies.


LTRIM Technologies is a provider of high-end, high-performance power- management CMOS analog virtual component solutions, which can be easily integrated into CMOS mixed-signal SoCs or offered as stand-alone analog chips. In addition, LTRIM Technologies has developed and patented a new laser fine- tuning technology for standard silicon diffused resistors that further enhances analog block performance.
