Validate Results of Setup

  • Change Switch Matrix so that you measure the 2 kOhm + 6.8 kOhm on ADuCM350 Switch Mux Config Board (AFE 4 to AFE 6).
  • Delay after switch mux not required to be significant as switches only see resistors.

Results for measuring 2K + 6.8K

  • Results on Serial Comms Terminal
  • Code starts at 32768 (DC Level 1 = 0 V = Midscale)
  • Code Settles at 25790 (DC Level 2 = 300mV)


  • From Transmit Side:
    • Current seen by TIA = (Step Voltage)/Z=  300mV/8.8kOhm = 34.09uA
    • 2K + 6.8K are 0.1% accurate.
  • From Receive Side:
    • Input Current Resolution = 3.6V/2^16   1/1.5  1/RTIA = 4.88nA (assumption RTIA=7.5k as on ADuCM350 Switch Mux Board)
    • Code Change in ADC = 32768 – 25790 = 6978 Codes
    • Current seen by TIA = Current Resolution X Code Change in ADC = 4.88nA * 6973 = 34.05uA
    • More accurate series resistors will give better accuracy etc.
