# AD7768 : 8 CHANNEL ADC CAN SUPPORT SINGLE END - BIPOLAR INPUT.

Hi All ,

I have an requirement to convert the 8 channel analog input (Single ended - bipolar) signal with the range of 10Vpp, The waveform will be sin, ramp, square,and Sweep.

Hence I am planing to use AD7768. In this I need a clarification of following points:

1. I have 8 channel single ended bipolar signal inputs (10Vpp, +/- 5 ), So I will connect this signal to the correspoding port of (AIN0+ to AIN7). My question is, May I Ground it the remaining ports of AIN-0 to Ain7- ?

2. My input signal should support (+5V to -5V , 10Vpp), so in REF1- and REF2- may I connect to Ground or -2.5V should give ?

3. If I ground the REF1- and REF2- , The AD7786 support the input signal swing 10Vpp?

4. Even though My Signal is single ended bipolar , Is there I want to make this signal to converted into differential bipolar (True Biploar signal)?

Please clarify the points as soon we are going to finalise the design stage.
