Analog Devices have introduced the ADAQ4003 μModule® precision data acquisition (DAQ), signal chain solution that reduces the development cycle of precision measurement systems by transferring the signal chain design challenge of component selection, optimization, and layout from the designer to the device.
System and circuit-level hardware designers can spend significant research and development (R&D) resources and time to develop high performance, discrete linear, and precision signal chain blocks for their end applications, however the electronic industry’s dynamics are rapidly evolving meaning there is now less time to build and prototype analog circuits to verify their functionality and on top of this tight control of R&D budgets and the need to reduce time to market mean meeting these constraints is getting ever more challenging. Today’s hardware designers are now demanding advanced precision data conversion performance and increased robustness for complex designs in an ever-shrinking form factor amid thermal and PCB density limitations. The ADAQ4003 precision data acquisition module from Analog Devices has been developed to address all of these tough challenges with a solution that combines their signal chain know-how and years of experience into a compact integrated device.
Using system-in-package (SIP) technology, the ADAQ4003 reduces end system component count and complexity by combining multiple common signal processing and conditioning blocks into a single device. These blocks include a high resolution 18-bit, 2 MSPS successive approximation register (SAR), analog-to-digital converter (ADC), a low noise, fully differential ADC driver amplifier (FDA), and a stable reference buffer.

The ADAQ4003 leverages Analog Devices iPassives® technology, allowing integration of the crucial passive components with superior matching and drift characteristics to minimize temperature dependent error sources and to offer optimized performance. The module features an SPI compatible interface that is suitable for use with 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 3 V, or 5 V logic, using a separate VIO supply.
The ADAQ4003 greatly simplifies the design of precision measurement systems for a diverse range of applications including Automatic test equipment, Machine automation, Process controls, Medical instrumentation and Digital control loops.

The ADAQ4003 signal chain solution is housed in a small, 7 mm × 7 mm, 0.80 mm pitch, 49-ball CSP_BGA enabling compact form factor designs without sacrificing performance and at the same time simplifying end system bill of materials management. This level of system integration makes the ADAQ4003 much less sensitive to printed circuit board layout while still providing flexibility to adapt to a wide range of signal levels. The specified temperature range for the ADAQ4003 is from −40°C to +125°C.
The ADAQ4003 µModule® data acquisition system is supported by the EVAL-ADAQ4003FMCZ evaluation kit which contains the EV-ADAQ4003PMDZ peripheral module (Pmod) board and the EVAL-PMD-IB1Z Pmod to field programmable grid array (FPGA) mezzanine card (FMC) interposer board that interfaces with the system demonstration controller board (EVAL-SDP-CH1Z) via a 160-pin FMC connector.
The EVAL-ADAQ4003FMCZ evaluation kit allows designers to explore the full capability of the ADAQ4003 device helping to further speed up time to market, the evaluation kit includes the following features:
