NEW PRODUCT – ADS1015 12-Bit ADC – 4 Channel with Progrmmable Gain Amplifier
NEW PRODUCT – ADS1015 12-Bit ADC – 4 Channel with Progrmmable Gain Amplifier. For microcontrollers without an analog-to-digital converter or when you want a higher-precision ADC, the ADS1015 provides 12-bit precision at 3300 samples/second over I2C. The chip can be configured as 4 single-ended input channels, or two differential channels. As a nice bonus, it even includes a programmable gain amplifier, to help boost up smaller signals (+-256mV) to the full range. We like this ADC because it can run from 2V to 5V power/logic and can measure all kinds of signals and its super easy to use, its a great general purpose 12 bit converter.
The chip’s fairly small so it comes on a breakout board with ferrites to keep the AVDD and AGND quiet. Interfacing is done via I2C. The address can be changed to one of four options (see the datasheet table 5) so you can have up to 4 ADS1015’s connected on a single 2-wire I2C bus for 16 single ended inputs.
