Reg:Input Filter for ADC

Dear All,
How to decide R and c values of input filter to ADC. I know that it is depends on the cutoff frequency which is maximum frequency of input signal. But what is maximum value of resistance and capacitance should be used at the input of ADC. Is there any other factors which decides these values like input impedence of ADC, Internal Capacitor of ADC etc.,?

I have used Op-amp for signal condtioning, Before opamp i have low pass filter. Is it necessary to use one more filter or capacitor after op-amp?


Thanks in advance,

Thanks & Regards,
Sakthivel.S

Re: Reg:Input Filter for ADC

Generally, it's a good idea to follow the ADC vendors reference design, at least if you don't have an exact understanding of the requirements.

Is it necessary to use one more filter or capacitor after op-amp?
May be, depending on the (unsaid) ADC type. It can be required to isolate ADC switching input currents from the OP or to reduce the noise bandwidth. Also in this regard, check the reference designs.

Dear Sir,
My ADC is SAR only

A SAR ADC needs a S/H-circuit, but not necessarily an input filter.

Re: Reg:Input Filter for ADC

Dear Sir,
I am using the ADC in the microcontroller.. Does this not require input filter for anti-alising?
