DC1490A - Demo Manual

DEMO MANUAL DC1490B
LTC2460: 16-Bit,
Differential, D∑ ADC with
SPI Interface
DESCRIPTION
Demonstration circuit 1490B features the LTC2460, a 16‑bit
high performance Δ∑ analog-to-digital converter (ADC)
with an SPI interface. The input is unipolar with a range
of 0-REF. The modulator’s proprietary sampling technique
reduces the average input current to less than 50nA – or‑
ders of magnitude lower than typical delta sigma ADCs.
DC590 USB Serial Controller board and supplied software
to measure performance. The exposed ground planes allow
proper grounding to prototype circuitry. After evaluating
with Linear Technology’s software, the digital signals can
be connected to the end application’s processor/controller
for development of the serial interface.
DC1490B is a member of Linear Technology’s QuikEval™
family of demonstration boards. It is designed to allow easy
evaluation of the LTC2460 and may be connected directly
to the target application’s analog signals while using the

QUICK START PROCEDURE
Connect DC1490B to a DC590 USB Serial Controller using
the supplied 14 conductor ribbon cable. Connect DC590
to host PC with a standard USB A/B cable. Run the evalu‑
ation software supplied with DC590 or downloaded from
http://www.linear.com/software. The correct program will
be loaded automatically. Click the COLLECT button to start
reading the input voltage. Details on software features are
documented in the control panel’s help menu.
Tools are available for logging data, changing reference
voltage, changing the number of points in the strip chart
and histogram, and changing the number of points aver‑
aged for the DVM display.

HARDWARE SET-UP
Connection to DC590 Serial Controller
J1 is the power and digital interface connector. Connect
to DC590 serial controller with supplied 14 conductor
ribbon cable.
GND: This turret is connected directly to the internal
ground planes.
VCC: This is the supply and reference voltage for the ADC.
Do not draw any power from this point.
IN: This is the input to the ADC
Analog Connections
Analog signal connections are made via the row of turret
posts along the edge of the board. Also, when connecting
the board to an existing circuit the exposed ground planes
along the edges of the board may be used to form a solid
connection between grounds.
REFOUT: This turret is connected to the LTC2460 REFOUT
pin. This pin may be used to provide a reference voltage
to an external circuit and can source up to 100µA. Do
NOT drive this pin.
