The KAD/ADC/115/DT provides independent excitation for up to 16 channels and is intended for Diode Thermometry (DT) type sensors such as the DT-670 sensors from Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.

Each channel has a separate programmable digital filter and A/D converter.

At the heart of the KAD/ADC/115/DT is a hard-wired state-machine that oversamples all channels at a rate between 100 ksps and 200 ksps and digitally filters any noise above the user-programmable cutoff frequency. This is achieved using cascaded, half-band, finite-impulse-response filters followed by an 8th order Butterworth Infinite-Impulse-Response (IIR) filter with a default cutoff point set at one quarter of the sampling frequency (fc = fs / 4).

All signals are sampled simultaneously. Thus, when several channels are sampled at different sampling rates, at the start of an acquisition cycle, all channels are aligned.

The excitation current through the DT sensor is kept constant. As the temperature changes, the voltage across the DT sensor (and hence as seen by the amplifier) changes.

A linearization table for each channel can be used to compensate for nonlinear sensors or to fine-tune gain and offset.


  • 16 ¼-bridge, 2-wire, input channels for DT-type sensors
  • Input range of 0 to 1.95V. This gives a temperature range of -271°C to 225°C for a DT-670 sensor.
  • Programmable constant current excitation
  • Short on any channel does not affect others
  • 16-bit simultaneous sampling on each channel


  • Temperature measurements with Diode Thermometry sensors such as the DT-670 from Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc
