OWADC1 - 1-wire 8-channel ADC board


OWADC1 (w/o) connector J1/J2

OWADC1 is a small, compact board designed by M.Traxler and S.Voltz (GSI/EE) to provide an 8 channel, max. 16bit ADC to be accessed by 1-wire protocol

RC time

The inputs of the ADCs have capacities of 100 nF connected to GND ( C15 ... C22 ).
  • Apparently the input resistance of the ADC seems to be around 1010 Ω, therefore the time constant τ is around 1000s, improving noise resilience, but reacting quite slow to rapid changes.
    • NOTE: we deduced those numbers the other way around: having 100nF, we saw a decay time of a 3V input value (~36000 adc counts) to 0 less than 1000, to take more than 10 minutes. Details on purpose.
    • The datasheet says: 1MOhm.
  • To decrease τ smaller capacities should be used.

Notes and Remarks

  1. Make sure to have (at least) 1 pull-up resistor of about 3.3kΩ on the data line of the 1-wire bus to the power VDD.
    • Recommended to have it at the master, e.g. at HadCon's connector JDINOUT2.

Future/Extensions/Wish list

  • 10 pin 1-wire connector:
    • pin layout compatible to JDINOUT of HadCon and HadCon2
    • but with a switch/dial (?) to connect internal 1-wire bus to one of the available 6 positions
    • switch for allowing/blocking (default) connection to external VDD of HadCon(2)
    • alternative:
      • 2 pin connector (screws/clamps) connecting only data and ground line
  • RJ-45 connectors
    • 90° bending
