8:1 Sensor Interface AFE


The XR18910 is a unique sensor interface integrated circuit with an on-board 8:1 multiplexer, offset correction DAC, instrumentation amplifier and voltage reference. The XR18910 is designed to integrate multiple bridge sensors with a Microcontroller (MCU) or Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

The integrated offset correction DAC provides digital calibration of the variable and in many cases substantial offset voltage generated by the bridge sensors. The DAC is controlled by an I2C compatible two-wire serial interface. The serial interface also provides the user with easy controls to the XR18910’s many functions such as input and gain selection.

An integrated LDO provides a regulated voltage to power the input bridge sensors and is selectable, between 3V and 2.65V, via the serial interface for lower voltage compatibility. The LDO current can be sensed and a proportional voltage present at the output of the IC for monitoring the LDO current.

The XR18910 offers eight fixed gain settings (from 2V/V to 760V/V), each with an error of only ±0.5%, that are selectable via the I2C interface. 

The XR18910 is designed to operate from 2.7V to 5V supplies and is specified over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. It is offered in a space saving 3.5mm x 3.5mm QFN-24 package. It consumes less than 559μA maximum supply current and offers a sleep mode for added power savings.
