Maxim Integrated MAX1393 and MAX1396 12-bit SAR analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) operate with a single power supply from +1.5V to +3.6V. Maxim Integrated MAX1393 and MAX1396 ADCs feature automatic shutdown, fast wake-up, and a highspeed 3-wire interface. Power consumption is only 0.734mW (VDD = +1.5V) at the maximum conversion rate of 312.5ksps, and AutoShutdown™ between conversions reduces power consumption at slower throughput rates. The MAX1393 features a single true-differential analog input channel with unipolar/bipolar select input. The MAX1396 provides a dual single-ended input channel with channel-select input. Excellent dynamic performance, low voltage, low power, ease of use, and small package sizes make these ADCs ideal for portable battery-powered data-acquisition applications and other applications demanding low power consumption and minimal space.
