PCI104 Bus

PCI-104 is the newest variation of the standard. PCI-104 removes the old PC XT / AT bus from the specification leaving only the PCI bus. The PCI bus connector is a 4×30, 2mm stack-through connector. PCI-104 cards may still reside in a stack with either PC/104 cards or PC/104-Plus cards.

ADS7816 – 12-Bit High Speed Sampling AD

The ADS7816 is a 12-bit, 200kHz sampling analog to- digital converter. It features low power operation with automatic power down, a synchronous serial interface, and a differential input. The reference voltage can be varied from 100mV to 5V, with a corresponding resolution from 24mV to 1.22mV. – From TI Applications

ADS7816  – 12-Bit High Speed A/D Converter

Low power, automatic power down, and small size make the ADS7816 ideal for battery operated systems or for systems where a large number of signals must be acquired simultaneously. It is also ideal for remote and/or isolated data acquisition.

ADS7816 - 12-Bit High Speed Sampling AD

12-Bit High Speed Micro Power Sampling Analog-to-Digital converter

The ADS7816 is a classic successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital (A/D) converter. The architecture is based on capacitive redistribution which inherently includes a sample/hold function.

The converter is fabricated on a 0.6µ CMOS process. The architecture and process allow the ADS7816 to acquire and convert an analog signal at up to 200,000 conversions per second while consuming very little power
