8:1 Sensor Interface Analog Front End Simplifies Sensor Conditioning
Exar Corp.

Exar Corporation announces the XR18910, the latest addition to its family of analog front end sensor interfaces that integrates high channel count and functionality in a 3.5 mm x 3.5 mm footprint. The XR18910 provides 14-bit signal path linearity and is designed to connect analog sensors to a microcontroller (MCU) or field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with an embedded ADC. The onboard 10-bit DAC offers ±560 mV of offset correction and allows an independent offset value for each of the eight differential inputs. The programmable gain instrumentation amplifier offers eight fixed-gain settings (from 2 V/V to 760 V/V), ensuring the amplified sensor signal falls within the optimum input range of the downstream ADC. The integrated LDO provides a regulated 3V or 2.65V voltage to power the sensors. The XR18910 is controlled via an I2C serial interface and typically consumes 457µA of supply current and offers a sleep mode which reduces the supply current to only 45µA.

The XR18910 is available in a RoHS compliant, green/halogen free, space-saving 3.5mm x 3.5mm QFN package. The XR18910 is priced at $6.10 in 1,000-piece quantities.
