The ADS7841 four-channel, 12-bit sampling analog-to-digital converter features a synchronous serial interface. In applications where low power is critical, the ADS7841's power-down mode reduces supply current. This, in combination with high speed and an on-board multiplexer, targets it for use in industrial process control, remote data acquisition, test and measurement, and medical instrumentation.
