Stand alone ADC?

Is there an ADC which is microcontroller independant? i.e. it does not require a UC for its operation.

ICL7106/7 is used in most digital multimeters.

p.s. Please be more specific. What are you going to do with digital data without MCU or PC?

Re: Stand alone ADC?

The digital Audio processor I am working on uses digital data. I can connect SPDIF out of a DVD player through a stand alone SPDIF Receiver. I also want to have the option of analog input. To avoid complecated circuitry, I was wondering if there was a stand alonr ADC.

The one you mentioned would be very slow. (But you did not know my application, so not your fault)

Any other choices.....

Re: Stand alone ADC?

How about the PCM1801 from TI? 2-channel delta-sigma, 16-bit, up to 48kHz, PCM output, SO-14 package.

https://focus.ti.com/docs/prod/folders/print/pcm1801.html

There are a multitude of choices, depending on exactly what you want (resolution, sampling rates, nice filtering, data output format etc). TI have quite a few...

Cheers,
FoxyRick.

Re: Stand alone ADC?

I will check the entire list of A--->D Converters. You have given me a good place to start.

Does any one else have an SPDIF receiver (better or more simple) than Cirrus Logic? Do we have a better choice than CS8414?

Those two are specialy make for LED/LCD output.

I used ICL7109.
