Maximum cycle time

Dear Forum,


I have a question regarding the maximum cycle time allowed for a conversion.


The Datasheet of AD7606 sais that during a normal performance the MAXIMUM conversion time is equal to 5 us, which looks to be the maximum time between CONVST rising edges. My question is simple: it means that the maximum time between CONVST rising edges is equal to tcycle or that the MINIMUM time between CONVST is time cycle?


If the ADC needs 5 us to do a conversion I would say the datasheet tells us the minimum time between CONVST rising edges (i.e. I should wait 5 us to send the next CONVST rising edge pulse). However, I feel a little bit confusing how it is stated in the datasheet as maximum time.


Thanks for your attention,

Best regards,
