CIRCUIT FUNCTION AND BENEFITS
The circuit shown in Figure 1 is a completely isolated 4-channel
temperature measurement circuit optimized for performance,
input flexibility, robustness, and low cost. It supports all types of
thermocouples with cold junction compensation and any type
of RTD (resistance temperature detector) with resistances up to
4 kΩ for 2-, 3-, or 4-wire connection configurations.
The RTD excitation current are is programmable for optimum
noise and linearity performance.
RTD measurements achieve 0.1°C accuracy (typical), and
Type-K thermocouple measurements achieve 0.05°C typical
accuracy because of the 16-bit ADT7310 digital temperature
sensor used for cold-junction compensation. The circuit uses a
four-channel AD7193 24-bit sigma-delta ADC with on-chip
PGA for high accuracy and low noise.
Input transient and overvoltage protection are provided by low
leakage transient voltage supressors (TVS) and Schottky diodes.
The SPI-compatible digital inputs and outputs are isolated
(2500 V rms), and the circuit is operated on a fully isolated
power supply.

CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
Temperature Measurement Introduction
(hundreds of meters) to a remote RTD can be compensated for
with 3- or 4-wire connections.
Thermocouples and RTDs (resistance temperature detectors)
are the most frequently used sensors for temperature
measurement in industrial applications. Thermocouples are
able to measure very high temperatures up to about +2300°C
and also have a fast response time (measured in fractions of a
second). RTDs are capable of higher accuracy and stability than
thermocouples, and the resistance of long wire lengths
A thermocouple consists of two wires of different metals joined
at one end. This end is placed at the temperature which is to be
measured, refered to as the measurement junction. The other
end is connected to a precision voltage measurement unit, and
this connection is referred to as the reference junction or alternately
the cold junction. The temperature difference between the
measurement junction and the cold junction generates a voltage
Rev. A | Page 2 of 9
Circuit Note
CN-0287
For example, K-type thermocouples are capable of measuring
−200°C to +1350°C with an output range of approximately −10
mV to +60 mV. It is important for the signal chain to maintain
as high impedance and low leakage as possible to achieve the
highest accuracy for the voltage measurement. In order to
convert this voltage to an absolute temperature, the cold junction
temperature must be accurately known. Traditionally 1°C to 2°C
has been considered sufficient, although since the cold junction
measurement error contributes directly to the absolute
temperature error, a higher accuracy cold junction temperature
measurement is beneficial
An RTD is made from a pure material, such as platinum, nickel
or copper, that has a predictable change in resistance as the
temperature changes.The most widely used RTD is platinum
(Pt100 and Pt1000).
One method used to accurately measure the resistance is to
measure the voltage across the RTD generated by a constant
current source. Errors in the current source can be cancelled by
referring the measurement to the voltage generated across a
reference resistor that is driven with the same current (i.e. a
ratiometric measurement). Minimizing the leakage current
through the current path is important for achieving high accuracy
because the excitation current is typically only a few hundred
microamps to prevent self heating.
For the industrial field applications both high performance as
well as protection against both high-voltage transient events and
dc over-voltage conditions are important design considerations.
Analog-to-Digital Converter
The AD7193 is a low noise, complete analog front end for high
precision measurement applications. It contains a low noise, 24bit sigma-delta (Σ-Δ) analog-to-digital converter (ADC). This
ADC achieves high resolution, low non-linearity, and low noise
performance as well as very high 50 Hz/60 Hz rejection. The
data output rate can be varied from 4.7 Hz (24 bits effective
resolution, Gain = 1), to 4.8 kHz (18.6 bits effective resolution,
Gain = 1). The on-chip low noise PGA amplifies the small
differential signal from the thermocouple or RTD with a gain
programmable from 1 up to 128, thereby allowing a direct
interface. The gain stage buffer has high input impedance and
limits the input leakage current to ± 3 nA maximum. The gain
of theAD7193 must be configured properly depending on the
temperature range and type of sensors. The on-chip multiplexer
allows four differential input channels to be shared with the
same ADC core, saving both space and cost.
Programmable Current Source for RTDs and Bias
Voltage Generator Circuit for Thermocouples
RTD measurements require a low noise current source that
drives the RTD and a reference resistor. Thermocouple
measurements, on the other hand, need a common-mode bias
voltage that shifts the small thermocouple voltage into the input
range of the AD7193. The circuit shown in Figure 2 meets both
requirements and utilizes the AD8603 a low noise CMOS railto-rail input/output op amp with only 1 pA maximum input
bias current and 50 μV maximum offset voltage, combined with
the ADG702 single channel, CMOS low voltage 2 Ω SPST
switch, and the ADG738 eight-channel matrix switch.

The AD5201, 33-position digital potentiometer, AD8603 op
amp, and ADG702 single channel switch constitute a simple
programmable current source and bias voltage buffer for the RTD
and thermocouple measurements. The ADG738 routes the
current source to the active RTD channel and allows wire
resistance compensation for the 3-W RTD configuration.
The ADT7310 digital SPI temperature sensor has ±0.8°C
maximum accuracy (+5 V supply) from −40°C to +105°C and is
used for cold-junction compensation for the thermocouple
measurement. The ADR3440 is a low noise and high accuracy
4.096 V reference connected to REFIN1(+)/REFIN1(−) of the
AD7193 for the thermocouple measurements.

With S1 of the ADG738 closed and S2 opened, the voltage at
the input of AD7193 is V1. With S1 opened and S2 closed, the
voltage on the input of AD7193 is V2, The voltage across the
RTD sensor is VRTD, the exciting current from the current source is
IEXC. V1 and V2 contain the error generated by the lead resistance
as shown below:
With the ADG738 closed and the ADG702 opened, the
AD8603 generates the RTD excitation current, IEXC = VW/RREF.
Temperature measurement is a high precision and low speed
application, therefore there is adequate settling time available to
switch the single current source between all 4 channels,
providing excellent channel-to-channel matching, low cost, and
small PCB footprint.

Equation 5 shows that the 3-wire configuration requires two
separate measurements (V1 and V2) in order to calculate RRTD,
thereby decreasing the output data rate. In most applications
this is not a problem.
In many applications, the RTD may be located remotely from
the measurement circuit. The resistance from the long lead
wires can generate large errors, especially for low resistance
RTDs. In order to minimize the effect of the lead resistance, a 3wire RTD configuration is supported as shown in Figure 3.

Protection Circuits
Thermocouple Configuration Test Results
Transient and overvoltage conditions are possible both during
manufacturing and in the field. To achieve a high level of
protection, additional external protection circuitry is necessary
to compliment the IC’s internal integrated protection circuitry.
The external protection adds additional capacitance, resistance,
and leakage. These effects should be carefully considered to
achieve a high level of accuracy. The additional protection
circuitry is shown in Figure 5.
The performance of the circuit is highly dependent on the
sensor and the configuration of the AD7193. The Type-K
thermocouple output varies from −10 mV to +60 mV,
corresponding to −200°C to +1350°C. The AD7193 PGA is
configured for G = 32. The voltage swing out of the PGA is
−320 mV to +1.92 V, or 2.24 V p-p. With chop enabled,
50 Hz/60Hz noise reduction enabled, and filter word FS[9:0] =
96, the noise distribution histogram for 1024 samples is shown

In this circuit, the PTVS30VP1UP transient voltage suppressor
(TVS) quickly clamps any transient voltages to 30 V with only
1 nA typical leakage current at 25°C. A 30 V TVS was chosen to
allow for a 30 V dc overvoltage. A 1.69 kΩ resistor followed by
low leakage BAV199LT1G Schottky diodes are used to clamp the
voltage to the 5 V power rail during transient and dc overvoltage
events. The 1.69 kΩ resistor limits the current through the
external diodes to about 15 mA during a 30 V dc overvoltage
condition. In order to ensure the power rail is able to sink this
current, a Zener diode is used to clamp the power rail to ensure
it does not exceed the absolute maximum rating of any of the
IC’s connected to the supply. The 5.6 V Zener diode (NZH5V6B) is
selected for this purpose. A 300 Ω resistor limits any further
current that could flow into the AD7193 or the ADG738.

Thermocouple Measurement Linearity
RTD Configuration Test Results
Figure 7 shows the approximate linearity of the type K
thermocouple system. The “cold junction” temperature is
0°C in this plot.
For a Pt100 RTD, the default ADC gain setting is G = 8, and for
a Pt1000 RTD the default gain setting is G = 1. The reference
voltage to the ADC is equal to the voltage across the 4.02 kΩ
reference resistor. The temperature coefficient of a Pt100 RTD is
approximately 0.385 Ω/°C, and at +850°C the resistance can be
as high as 400 Ω. With a 400 µA default excitation current, the
maximum RTD voltage is therefore about 160 mV. The reference
voltage to the ADC is 4.02 kΩ × 400 µA = 1.608 V. For G = 8,
the maximum RTD voltage is 160 mV × 8 = 1.28 V which is
approximately 80% of the available range.

For a Pt1000 RTD, the maximum resistance at +850°C is

to the ADC is 4.02 kΩ × 380 µA = 1.53 V. A default gain setting
of G = 1 is used, and the maximum RTD voltage utilizes nearly
all of the available range.

The precision voltage for calibration as well as testing is
provided by the Fluke 5700A Calibrator high precision dc
voltage source with a resolution of 10 nV. The voltage error in
Figure 8 is within 0.2 µV of ideal, corresponding to about
0.004°C. This result is the short time accuracy result just after a
system calibration at 25°C without the effects of temperature
drift.The dominant error for this circuit is from the coldjunction compensation measurement. In this circuit the
ADT7310 is used for cold-junction compensation and has a
typical error of −0.05°C, and a worst case error of ±0.8°C over
the −40°C to +105°C temperature range for a 5 V supply. The
device has a ±0.4°C maximum error over this temperature
range if a 3 V supply is used.

the ADC code (Code), resolution (N), reference resistor (RREF),

The total leakage current for each of the inputs is 9 nA (3 nA from
AD7193, buffer on), 5 nA from clamping diode and 1 nA from
the TVS diode). All four channels will thus generate 36 nA
maximum leakage current. The feedback loop in Figure 2 maintains
a constant current through the reference resistor. This means
that leakage currents affect the RTD excitation current, thereby
producing an error. The default exciting current is 400 µA for
Pt100 and 380 µA for Pt1000. The approximate worst case system
error due to the leakage currents for Pt100 RTDs is:

The amount of the error depends on the configuration of the

The ADC code changed from approximately 437,800 to 437,600
corresponding to a measurement change of 104.9015 Ω to
104.8627, or 0.0388 Ω. This represents a measurement error of
approximately 0.1°C; however it can be removed by calibrating
at room temperature with a fixed input configuration.

CIRCUIT EVALUATION AND TEST
This circuit uses the EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ circuit board and the
SDP-B (EVAL-SDP-CB1Z) system demonstration platform
controller board. The two boards have 120-pin mating
connectors, allowing for the quick setup and evaluation of the
performance of the circuit. The EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ board
contains the circuit to be evaluated, as described in this note,
and the SDP-B controller board is used with the CN0287
Evaluation Software to capture the data from the EVALCN0287-SDPZ circuit board.

COMMON VARIATIONS
The AD779x low noise, low power, 16-/24-bit sigma-delta
ADC family is more suitable for signal channel or low power
applications. The ADT7311, ±0.5°C accurate, 16-bit digital SPI
temperature sensor is qualified for automotive applications. The
cold junction compensation circuit accuracy can be improved
by using a digital temperature sensor, such as ADT7320, with
±0.25°C accuracy.

Setup
Connect the 120-pin connector on the EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ
circuit board to the CON A connector on the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z
controller board (SDP-B). Use nylon hardware to firmly secure
the two boards, using the holes provided at the ends of the 120-pin
connectors. With power to the supply off, connect a 6 V power
supply to the +6 V and GND pins on the board. If available, a 6 V
wall wart can be connected to the barrel connector J2 on the
board and used in place of the 6 V power supply. Connect the
USB cable supplied with the SDP-B board to the USB port on
the PC. Do not connect the USB cable to the Mini-USB connector
on the SDP-B board at this time.
Turn on the 6 V power supply to power up the evaluation board
and SDP board, then plug in the Mini-USB cable into the MiniUSB port on the SDP board.

Connectivity for Prototype Development
Launch the evaluation software. After USB communications are
established, the SDP-B board can be used to send, receive, and
capture data from the EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ board.
The EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ evaluation board is designed to use
the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP-B board; however, any
microprocessor can be used to interface to the SPI interface
through the PMOD connector J6. The pin definition of PMOD
connector can be found in the schematics of CN0287 evaluation
board in CN0287 Design Support Package. In order for another
controller to be used with the EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ evaluation
board, software must be developed by a third party.
Figure 11 shows a photo of the EVAL-CN0287-SDPZ evaluation
board connected to the SDP board. Information regarding the
SDP-B board can be found in the SDP-B User Guide.

Information and details regarding test setup and calibration,
and how to use the evaluation software for data capture can be
found in the CN-0287 Software User Guide.
