Analog Engineer Circuit Cookbook: ADCs

The Analog Engineer’s Circuit Cookbook: ADCs provides analog-to-digital converter (ADC) sub-circuit ideas that can be quickly adapted to meet your specific system needs. Each circuit is presented as a “definition-by-example.” They include step-by-step instructions, like a recipe, with formulas enabling you to adapt the circuit to meet your design goals. Additionally, all circuits are verified with SPICE simulations and include links to the corresponding TINA-TITM SPICE circuits.
We’ve provided at least one recommended ADC for each circuit, but you can swap it with another device if you’ve found one that’s a better fit for your design. You can search our large portfolio of ADCs at
Our circuits require a basic understanding of amplifier and data converter concepts. If you’re new to data converter design, we highly recommend completing our TI Precision Labs (TIPL) training series. TIPL includes courses on introductory topics, such as device architecture, as well as advanced, application-specific problem-solving, using both theory and practical knowledge.
