2 Fabricated in high-performance, low-power CMOS, the TC7129 ADC is designed specifi-cally for high-resolution, battery-powered digital multi-meter applications. The traditional dual-slope methodof A/D conversion has been enhanced with a succes-sive integration technique to produce readings accu-rate to better than of full-scale and resolutiondown to 10 V per TC7129 includes features important to multimeterapplications. It detects and indicates low battery condi-tion. A continuity output drives an annunciator on thedisplay and can be used with an external driver to soundan audible alarm.
3 Overrange and underrange outputs,along with a range-change input, provide the ability tocreate auto-ranging instruments. For snapshot read-ings, the TC7129 includes a latch-and-hold input tofreeze the present reading. This combination of featuresmakes the TC7129 the ideal choice for full-featuredmultimeter and digital measurement ApplicationPackage CodePin LayoutPackageTemperatureRangeTC7129 CPLN ormal40-Pin PDIP 0 C to +70 CTC7129 CKWF ormed44-Pin PQFP 0 C to +70 CTC7129 CLW 44-Pin PLCC 0 C to +70 CTC7129 1234567891011121314151617181920403938373 635343332313029 28272625242322219V++Low Battery ContinuityV+5 pF120 kHz10 F20 k F100 k 1 F150 k 10 k V+VIN +**Note.
