MIKROE ISO ADC 5 Click is a compact add-on board that contains quad-channel isolated ADC with field supply. This board features the MAX22530, galvanically isolated, 4-channel, multiplexed, 12-bit, analog-to-digital converter (ADC), providing 5kVRMS isolation from Maxim Integrated. The ADC and all field-side circuits are powered by an integrated, isolated DC-DC converter that can verify field-side functionality even when there is no input signal or other field-side supply. The 12-bit ADC core has a sample rate of typically 20ksps per channel, where ADC data is available through the SPI interface. This Click board™ is ideal for high-density, multi-range, group-isolated, binary-input modules and provides a complete solution to any system requiring monitoring inputs without a separate isolated power supply.
ISO ADC 5 Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development.
ISO ADC 5 Click as its foundation uses the MAX22530, a 12-bit, 4-channel ADC with a 5kVRMS isolated SPI interface from Maxim Integrated. The ADC and all field-side circuits are powered by an integrated, isolated DC-DC converter that can verify field-side functionality even when there is no input signal or other field-side supply. It continually digitizes the input voltage on the field-side of an isolation barrier, and it transmits the data across the isolation barrier to the logic-side of the devices, where the magnitude of the input voltage is compared to programmable thresholds.
The MAX22530 ADC employs a 12-bit SAR architecture with a nominal sampling rate of 20ksps per channel and has an input voltage of up to 1.8V. Placed voltage dividers make the proper ADC input voltage on the input analog channels, which, based on the input in the range from 0 to 48V, gives the required input to the ADC in its range from 0 to 1.8V. After Power-Up, the ADC runs continually at the nominal sampling rate. The MAX22530 also features a precision internal voltage reference of 1.8V with a maximum error of ±2% over the entire operating temperature range.
The MAX22530 communicates with MCU using the standard SPI serial interface with a maximum frequency of 10MHz. Besides, it continuously monitors multiple possible fault conditions such as ADC functionality error, SPI framing error, CRC errors from SPI communications, and internal isolated data stream loss. This hardware alert feature is provided through the interrupt pin, routed on the CS pin of the mikroBUS™ socket, which asserts low when an enabled fault is detected.
This Click board™ can operate with both 3.3V and 5V logic voltage levels selected via the VCC SEL jumper. This way, it is allowed for both 3.3V and 5V capable MCUs to use the SPI communication lines properly. However, the Click board™ comes equipped with a library containing easy-to-use functions and an example code that can be used, as a reference, for further development.
