AMC7836 High-Density, 12-Bit Analog Monitor and Control Solution With Multichannel
ADC, Bipolar DACs, Temperature Sensor, and GPIO Ports
1 Features
3 Description
•
The AMC7836 is a highly-integrated, low-power,
analog monitoring and control solution. The device
includes a 21-channel, 12-bit analog-to-digital
converter (ADC), sixteen 12-bit digital-to-analog
converters (DACs) with programmable output ranges,
eight GPIOs, an internal reference, and a local
temperature-sensor channel. The high level of
integration significantly reduces component count and
simplifies closed-loop system designs making it ideal
for multichannel applications where board space,
size, and low-power are critical.

Package
The low-power, very high-integration and wide
operating-temperature range of the device make it
suitable as an all-in-one, low-cost, bias-control circuit
for the power amplifiers (PA) found in multichannel
RF communication systems. The flexible DAC output
ranges allow the device to be used as a biasing
solution for a large variety of transistor technologies,
such as LDMOS, GaAs, and GaN. The AMC7836
feature set is similarly beneficial in general-purpose
monitor and control systems.
For applications that require a different channelcount, additional features, or converter resolutions,
Texas Instruments offers a complete family of analog
monitor and control (AMC) products. For more

I/O
General-purpose digital I/O 0 (default). This pin is a bidirectional digital input/output (I/O) with
an internal 48-kΩ pullup resistor to the IOVDD pin. Alternatively the pin can be set to operate
as the digital input ALARMIN which is an active-low alarm-control signal. If unused this pin can
be left floating.
I/O
General purpose digital I/O 1 (default). This pin is a bidirectional digital I/O with an internal 48kΩ pullup resistor to the IOVDD pin. Alternatively the pin can be set to operate as ALARMOUT
which is an open drain global alarm output. This pin goes low (active) when an alarm event is
detected. If unused this pin can be left floating.
I/O
General purpose digital I/O 2 (default). This pin is a bidirectional digital I/O with internal 48-kΩ
pullup resistor to the IOVDD pin. Alternatively the pin can be set to operate as ADCTRIG which
is an active-low external conversion trigger. The falling edge of this pin begins the sampling
and conversion of the ADC. If unused this pin can be left floating.
General purpose digital I/O 3 (default). This pin is a bidirectional digital I/O with internal 48-kΩ
pullup resistor to the IOVDD pin. Alternatively the pin can be set to operate as DAV which is an
active-low data-available indicator output. In direct mode, the DAV pin goes low (active) when
the conversion ends. In auto mode, a 1-µs pulse (active low) appears on this pin when a
conversion cycle finishes. The DAV pin remains high when deactivated. If unused this pin can
be left floating.

7 Detailed Description
7.1 Overview
The AMC7836 device is a highly-integrated analog-monitoring and control solution capable of voltage and
temperature supervision. The AMC7836 device includes the following features:
• Sixteen 12-bit digital-to-analog converters (DACs) with adjustable output ranges
– Output ranges: –10 to 0 V, –5 to 0 V, 0 to 5 V, and 0 to 10 V
– Auto-range detector on device power-up and reset events
– The DACs power-on and clamp voltages can be pin-selected between AGND and a negative voltage
– The DACs can be configured to clamp automatically upon detection of an alarm event
• A multi-channel, 12-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) for voltage and temperature sensing
– Sixteen bipolar inputs: –12.5 to 12.5 V input range
– Five precision inputs with programmable threshold detectors: 0 to 5 V input range
– Internal temperature sensor
• Internal 2.5 V precision reference
• Eight general purpose I/O (GPIO) ports
• Communication with the device occurs through a 4-wire SPI-compatible interface supporting 1.8 to 5.5 V
operation
The AMC7836 device is characterized for operation over the temperature range of –40ºC to 125ºC which makes
the device suitable for harsh-condition applications. The device is available in a 10-mm × 10-mm 64-pin HTQFP
PowerPAD IC package.
The very high-integration of the AMC7836 device makes it an ideal all-in-one, low-cost, bias-control circuit for the
power amplifiers (PAs) found in multi-channel RF-communication systems. The flexible DAC output ranges allow
the device to be used as a biasing solution for a large variety of transistor technologies such as LDMOS, GaAs,
and GaN. The AMC7836 feature set is similarly beneficial in general-purpose monitor and control systems.

7.3 Feature Description
7.3.1 Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs)
The AMC7836 device features an analog-control system centered on sixteen 12-bit DACs that operate from the
internal reference of the device. Each DAC core consists of a string DAC and output-voltage buffer.
The resistor-string structure consists of a series of resistors, each with a value of R. The code loaded to the DAC
determines at which node on the string the voltage is tapped off to be fed into the output amplifier. The voltage is
tapped off by closing one of the switches connecting the string to the amplifier (see Figure 48). This architecture
has inherent monotonicity, voltage output, and low glitch. This architecture is also linear because all the resistors
are of equal value.

7.3.1.1 DAC Output Range and Clamp Configuration
The 16 DACs are split into four groups, each with four DACs. All of the DACs in a given group share the same
output range and clamp voltage value, however, these settings can be set independently for each DAC group.
After power-on or a reset event the following actions take place: the DAC outputs are directed automatically to
the corresponding clamp value; the DAC groups output ranges are set by the auto-range detector and; all DAC
data registers and data latches are set to the default values. Figure 49 shows a high level block diagram of each
DAC in the AMC7836 device.

7.3.1.1.1 Auto-Range Detection
After power-on or a reset event the output range for each DAC group is set automatically by the voltage present
in the corresponding AVSS pin (AVEE, AVSSB, AVSSC or AVSSD). When the AVSS voltage of a DAC group is lower
than the threshold value, AVSSTH, the output for that DAC group is automatically configured to the –10 to 0 V
range. Conversely, if the DAC group AVSS voltage is higher than AVSSTH, the DAC-group output is automatically
set to the 0 to 5 V range. The auto-range detector results for each DAC group are stored in the general status
register (address 0x72).
In addition to a power-on or reset event, the auto-range detector is also enabled by a register write to the DAC
power down registers (address 0xB2 through 0xB3) or the device configuration register (address 0x02).
Although the initial output-range setting is determined by the auto-range detector, the output range for each
DAC-group can be afterwards configured to any of the available output ranges (–10 to 0 V, –5 to 0 V, 0 to 5 V, or
0 to 10 V) through the DAC range registers (address 0x1E through 0x1F).
NOTE
The power-on-reset and clamp-voltage value of each DAC group is set by the
corresponding AVSS pin and is independent of the DAC output range. In some
applications, matching the clamp-voltage setting to the operating voltage range is
imperative. For those applications, the recommended connections for the AVSS pin are:
AGND for the positive output ranges, in which case the clamp voltage is 0 V; a negative
supply voltage with a lower value than the minimum DAC output voltage (–5 V or –10 V)
for the selected negative output range, in which case the unloaded clamp voltage is
determined by the value of the negative supply voltage (see Figure 50).
Although not a recommended operating condition, the device allows a DAC group to
operate in a positive output range even if its clamp voltage is negative (AVSS connected to
a negative supply voltage).

Figure 50. DAC Clamp Output vs AVSS
A special distinction must be made for DAC group A as the AVSS pin of this group is the dual-function AVEE pin.
Aside from setting the clamp voltage and default output range for the DAC group A, the AVEE pin is also the
lowest potential in the device. As a consequence the AVEE voltage is dependent on the other AVSS pin
connections. The AVEE pin can only be connected to the analog ground if all the other AVSS pins are also
connected to the analog ground. If any of the AVSS pins is connected to a negative voltage, the AVEE pin must
also be connected to that voltage (see Table 1).
The full-scale output range for each DAC group is limited by the corresponding AVCC and AVSS values. The
maximum and minimum outputs cannot exceed the AVCC voltage or be lower than the AVSS voltage, respectively.

7.3.1.2 DAC Register Structure
The input data of the DACs is written to the individual DAC data registers (address 0x50 through 0x6F) in straight
binary format for all output ranges (see Table 2).

Data written to the DAC data registers is initially stored in the DAC buffer registers. The transfer of data from the
DAC buffer registers to the active registers is initiated by an update command in the register update register
(address 0x0F). When the active registers are updated, the DAC outputs change to the new values.
The host has the option to read from either the buffer registers or the active registers when accessing the DAC
data registers. The DAC read back option is configured by the READBACK bit in the interface configuration 1
register (address 0x01).
7.3.1.3 DAC Clear Operation
Each DAC can be set to a CLEAR state using either hardware or software. When a DAC goes to CLEAR state, it
is loaded with a zero-code input and the output voltage is set according to the auto-range detector output range.
The DAC buffer or active registers do not change when the DACs enter the CLEAR state which makes it
possible to return to the same voltage output before the clear event was issued. Even though the contents of the
active register do not change while a DAC is in CLEAR state, a data-register read operation from the active
registers while in this state returns zero-code. This functionality enables the ability to determine the DAC output
voltage regardless of the operating state (CLEAR or NORMAL).
NOTE
The DAC buffer and active registers can be updated while the DACs are in CLEAR state
allowing the DACs to output new values upon return to normal operation. When the DACs
exit the CLEAR state, the DACs are immediately loaded with the data in the DAC active
registers and the output is set back to the corresponding level to restore operation.
The DAC clear registers (address 0xB0 through 0xB1) enable independent control of each DAC CLEAR state
through software. The DACs can also be forced to enter a CLEAR state through hardware using the ALARMIN
pin. See the Programmable Out-of-Range Alarms section for a detailed description of this method.
The ALARMIN-controlled clear mechanism is just a special case of the device capability to force the DACs into
the CLEAR state as a response to an alarm event. To enable this function, the alarm events must first be
enabled as DAC-clear alarm sources in the DAC clear source registers (address 0x1A through 0x1B). The DAC
outputs to be cleared by the selected alarm events must also be specified in the DAC clear enable registers
(address 0x18 through 0x19).
An alarm event sets the corresponding alarm bit in the alarm status registers. In addition all the DACs set to
clear in response to the alarm event in the DAC clear enable registers enter a CLEAR state. Once the alarm bit
is cleared, as long as no other CLEAR-state controlling alarm events have been triggered, the DACs are
reloaded with the contents of the DAC active registers and the outputs update accordingly.

7.3.2 Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC)
The AMC7836 features a monitoring system centered on a 12-bit SAR (successive approximation register) ADC
fronted by a 22-channel multiplexer and an on-chip track-and-hold circuit. The monitoring systems is capable of
sensing up to 16 external bipolar inputs (–12.5 to 12.5 V range), five external unipolar inputs (0 to 5 V range),
and an internal analog temperature sensor.
The ADC operates from an internal 2.5 V reference (Vref, measured at the REF_CMP pin) and the input range is
0 V to 2 × Vref. The external bipolar inputs to the ADC are internally mapped to this range. The ADC timing
signals are derived from an on-chip temperature-compensated oscillator. The conversion results can be
accessed through the device serial interface.
7.3.2.1 Analog Inputs
The AMC7836 has 21 analog inputs for external voltage sensing. Sixteen of these inputs (ADC_0 through
ADC_15) are bipolar and the other five (LV_ADC16 through LV_ADC20) are unipolar. Figure 51 shows the
equivalent circuit for the external analog-input pins. All switches are open while the ADC is in the IDLE state.

7.3.2.1.1 Bipolar Analog Inputs
The AMC7836 can support up to 16 bipolar analog inputs. The analog input range for these channels is –12.5 to
12.5 V. The bipolar signal is scaled internally through a resistor divider so that it maps to the native input range
of the ADC (0 V to 2 × Vref). The input resistance of the scaling network is 175 kΩ.
The bipolar analog input conversion values are stored in straight binary format in the ADC data registers
(address 0x20 through 0x49). The LSB (least-significant bit) size for these channels is 25 × Vref / 4096. With the
internal reference equal to 2.5 V, the input voltage is calculated by Equation 1.

A typical application for the bipolar channels is monitoring of the 16 DAC outputs in the device. In this application
the bipolar inputs can be driven directly. However, in applications where the signal source has high impedance,
buffering the analog input is recommended. When driven from a low impedance source such as the AMC7836
DAC outputs, the network is designed to settle before the start of conversion. Additional impedance can affect
the settling and divider accuracy of this network.
7.3.2.1.2 Unipolar Analog Inputs
In addition to the bipolar input channels, the AMC7836 device includes five unipolar analog inputs. The analog
input range for these channels is 0 V to 2 × Vref and the LSB size for these channels is 2 × Vref / 4096.
The unipolar analog input conversion values are stored in straight binary format in the ADC-Data registers
(address 0x40 through 0x49). With the internal reference equal to 2.5 V, the input voltage is calculated by
Equation 2.

In applications where the signal source has high impedance, externally buffering the unipolar analog input is
recommended.
7.3.2.2 ADC Sequencing
The AMC7836 ADC conversion sequence is shown in Figure 52. The ADC supports direct mode and auto mode
conversion. The conversion method is selected in the ADC configuration register (address 0x10). The default
conversion method is direct mode.
In both methods, the single channel or sequence of channels to be converted by the ADC must be first
configured in the ADC MUX configuration registers (address 0x13 through 0x15). The input channels to the ADC
include 16 external bipolar inputs, five external unipolar inputs, and the internal temperature sensor.
In direct-mode conversion, the selected ADC input channels are converted on demand by issuing an ADC trigger
signal. After the last enabled channel is converted, the ADC enters IDLE state and waits for a new trigger.
In auto-mode conversion, the selected ADC input channels are converted continuously. The conversion cycle is
initiated by issuing an ADC trigger. Upon completion of the first conversion sequence another sequence is
automatically started. Conversion of the selected channels occurs repeatedly until the auto-mode conversion is
stopped by issuing a second trigger signal.

7.3.2.3 ADC Synchronization
A trigger signal must occur for the ADC to enter and exit the IDLE state. The ADC trigger can be generated
either through software (ICONV bit in the ADC trigger register, 0xC0) or hardware (GPIO2/ADCTRIG, pin 9). To
use the GPIO2/ADCTRIG pin as an ADC trigger, the pin must be configured accordingly in the GPIO
configuration register (address 0x12). When the pin is configured as a trigger, a falling edge on it begins the
sampling and conversion of the ADC.
In auto mode the ADC and temperature data registers (0x20 through 0x4B) are accessed by first issuing an ADC
UPDATE command in the register update register (address 0x0F). The ADC UPDATE command ensures the
latest available data for each input channel can be accessed without the need for complex synchronization
schemes between the AMC7836 device and the host controller. A single ADC UPDATE command updates all
ADC and temperature data registers. Therefore issuing multiple UPDATE commands is not necessary when
reading more than one ADC data register.
NOTE
The ADC UPDATE command and accessing of the ADC and Temperature data registers
does not interfere with the conversion process which ensures continuous ADC operation.
In direct mode the ADC and temperature data registers (0x20 through 0x4B) should only be accessed while the
ADC is in the IDLE state (see Figure 53). Although the total update time can be easily calculated, the device
provides a data-available indicator signal to track the ADC status. Failure to satisfy the synchronization
requirements could lead to erroneous data reads.
The data-available indicator signal is output through the GPIO3/DAV pin and as a data-available flag that is
accessible through the serial interface (DAVF bit in the general status register, 0x72). The GPIO3/DAV pin must
be configured in the GPIO configuration register (address 0x12) as an interrupt. After a direct-mode conversion is
complete and the ADC returns to the IDLE state, the DAVF bit is immediately set to 1 and the DAV pin is active
(low) which indicates that new data is available. The pin and flag are cleared automatically when a new
conversion begins or one of the ADC data or temperature data registers is accessed.

7.3.2.4 Programmable Out-of-Range Alarms
The AMC7836 device is capable of continuously analyzing the five external unipolar inputs and internal
temperature sensor conversion results for normal operation.
Normal operation is established through the lower and upper threshold registers (address 0x80 through 0x97).
When any of the monitored inputs is out of the specified range, an alarm event is issued and the global alarm bit,
GALR in the general status register (0x72), is set (see Figure 54). Use the alarm status registers (0x70 through
0x71) to determine the source of the alarm event.

Figure 54. Alarm Status Register
The ALARM-LATCH-DIS bit in the ALARMOUT source 1 register (address 0x1D) sets the latching behavior for
all alarms (except for the ALARMIN alarm which is always unlatched). When the ALARM-LATCH-DIS bit is
cleared to 0 the alarm bits in the alarm status registers are latched. The alarm bits are referred to as being
latched because they remain set until read by software. This design ensures that out-of-limit events cannot be
missed if the software is polling the device periodically. All bits are cleared when reading the alarm status
registers, and all bits are reasserted if the out-of limit condition still exists on the next monitoring cycle, unless
otherwise noted. When the ALARM-LATCH-DIS bit is set to 1, the alarm bits are not latched. The alarm bits in
the alarm status registers are set to 0 when the error condition subsides, regardless of whether the bit is read or
not.
All of the alarms can be set to activate the ALARMOUT pin. To enable this functionality, the GPIO1/ALARMOUT
pin must be configured accordingly in the GPIO configuration register (address 0x12). The ALARMOUT pin
works as an interrupt to the host so that it can query the alarm status registers to determine the alarm source.
Any alarm event can activate the pin as long as the alarm is not masked in the ALARMOUT source registers
(address 0x1C through 0x1D). When an alarm event is masked, the occurrence of the event sets the
corresponding status bit in the alarm status registers, but does not activate the ALARMOUT pin.

to flag the out-of-range condition. The values in the ADC upper and lower Threshold registers (address 0x80

The AMC7836 includes high-limit and low-limit detection for the internal temperature sensor. Figure 56 shows the
temperature detection block. The values in the LT upper and lower threshold registers (address 0x94 through
0x97) set the limits for the temperature sensor. The temperature sensor detector can issue either a high-alarm
(LT-HIGH-ALR bit) or a low-alarm (LT-LOW-ALR bit) in the alarm status 1 register (address 0x71) depending on
whether the high or low thresholds were exceeded. To implement single, upper-bound threshold detection for the
temperature sensor, the host processor can set the upper-bound threshold to the desired value and the lowerbound threshold to the default value. For lower-bound threshold detection, the host processor can set the lowerbound threshold to the desired value and the upper-bound threshold to the default value.
In addition to the programmable threshold alarms the temperature sensor detection circuit also includes a die
thermal-alarm flag which continuously monitors the die temperature. When the die temperatures exceeds 150˚C
the die thermal alarm flag (THERM-ALR bit) in the alarm status 1 register (address 0x71) is set. The internal
temperature sensor must be enabled for this alarm to be functional.

7.3.2.4.3 ALARMIN Alarm
The AMC7836 device offers the option of using an external interrupt signal, such as the output of a comparator
as an alarm event. The GPIO0/ALARMIN pin is used as the alarm input and must be configured accordingly in
the GPIO configuration register (address 0x12). The pin is active low when configured as an alarm input.
A typical application for ALARMIN pin is to use it as a hardware interrupt that is responsible for forcing one or
more DACs to a CLEAR state. The DAC is loaded with a zero-code input and the output voltage is set according
to the operating output range, however the DAC buffer or active registers do not change (see the Digital-toAnalog Converters (DACs) section for more details). To enable this functionality the ALARMIN pin must be
enabled as a DAC clear-alarm source in the DAC clear source 1 register (address 0x1B). Additionally the DAC
outputs to be cleared by the ALARMIN pin must be specified in the DAC clear enable registers (address 0x18
through 0x19).
In this application when the ALARMIN pin goes low, all the DACs that are set to clear in response to the
ALARMIN alarm in the DAC-clear enable registers enter a CLEAR state. When the ALARMIN pin goes back high
the DACs are reloaded with the contents of the DAC active registers which allows the DAC outputs to return to
the previous operating point without any additional commands.
7.3.2.4.4 Hysteresis
If a monitored signal is out of range and the alarm is enabled, the corresponding alarm bit is set to 1. However,
the alarm condition is cleared only when the conversion result returns either a value lower than the high
threshold register setting or higher than the low threshold register setting by the number of codes specified in the
hysteresis setting (see Figure 57). The ADC and LT hysteresis registers (address 0xA0 through 0xA4) store the
hysteresis value for the external unipolar inputs and internal temperature sensor programmable alarms. The
hysteresis is a programmable value between 0 LSB to 127 LSB for the unipolar inputs alarms and 0°C to 31°C
for the internal temperature-sensor alarms. The die thermal alarm hysteresis is fixed at 8°C.

7.3.2.4.5 False-Alarm Protection
To prevent false alarms, an alarm event is only registered when the monitored signal is out of range for an N
number of consecutive conversions. If the monitored signal returns to the normal range before N consecutive
conversions, an alarm event is not issued. The false alarm factor, N, for the unipolar input and local temperature
sensor out-of-range alarms can be configured in the false alarm configuration register (address 0x11).

7.3.3 Internal Temperature Sensor
The AMC7836 device has an on-chip temperature sensor that measures the device die temperature. The normal
operating temperature range for the internal temperature sensor is limited by the operating temperature range of
the device (–40°C to 125°C).
The temperature sensor results are converted by the device ADC at a lower speed than the analog input
channels. The temperature can be monitored either continuously or as a single-time conversion depending on
whether the ADC is configured in auto mode or direct mode (see the Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) section
for more details). If the temperature sensor is not needed, it can be disabled in the ADC MUX configuration 2
register (address 0x15). When disabled, the temperature sensor output is not converted by the ADC.
The temperature sensor provides 0.25°C resolution over the operating temperature range. The temperature
value is stored in 12-bit two’s complement format in the temperature data registers (address 0x78 through 0x79).

7.3.5 General Purpose I/Os
The AMC7836 device includes eight GPIO pins, each with an internal 48-kΩ pullup resistor to the IOVDD pin. The
GPIO[0:3] pins have dual functionality and can be programmed as either bidirectional digital I/O pins or interrupt
signals in the GPIO configuration register (address 0x12). The GPIO[4:7] pins are dedicated GPIOs. Table 4 lists
the dual function of the GPIO[0:3] pins.

The GPIOs can receive an input or produce an output. When the GPIOn pin acts as an output, the status of the
pin is determined by the corresponding GPIO bit in the GPIO register (address 0x7A).
To use a GPIOn pin as an input, the corresponding GPIO bit in the GPIO register must be set to 1. When a
GPIOn pin acts as input, the digital value on the pin is acquired by reading the corresponding GPIO bit. After a
power-on reset (POR) or any forced reset, all GPIO bits are set to 1, and the GPIOn pins have a 48-kΩ input
impedance to the IOVDD pin (see Figure 60). The unused GPIO pins can be left floating.

7.4 Device Functional Modes
The sixteen DACs in the AMC7836 device are split into four groups, each with four DACs. The output range and
clamp voltage for each DAC group is set independently which enables the device to operate in one of the
following modes:
• All-positive DAC range mode
• All-negative DAC range mode
• Mixed DAC range mode
7.4.1 All-Positive DAC Range Mode
In the AMC7836 all-positive DAC range mode, each of the four DAC groups is set to a positive voltage output
range (0 to 5 V or 0 to 10 V).
Because the maximum DAC output for each group cannot exceed the common AVCC voltage for the device
(AVCC = AVCC_AB = AVCC_CD), a DAC group in the 0 to 10 V output range forces the AVCC voltage to a value
greater or equal to 10 V even if the remaining DAC groups are set in the 0 to 5 V range. If all DAC groups are
set in the 0 to 5 V range the AVCC voltage can be set to a value as low as 5 V.
The minimum DAC output for each group cannot be lower than the AVSS voltage but because the minimum DAC
output is 0 V in the all-positive DAC range mode, all of the AVSS pins (AVEE, AVSSB, AVSSC, and AVSSD) as well
as the device thermal pad can be tied to AGND thus simplifying the board design. Table 5 lists the typical
configurations for this mode.

After power-on or a reset event the output range for each DAC group is set automatically by the voltage present
on the corresponding AVSS pin. In the all-positive DAC range mode all AVSS pins are connected to AGND and
consequently all four DAC groups will initialize by default to the 0 to 5 V range. The output for any of the DAC
groups can be modified to the 0 to 10 V range after initialization by setting the corresponding DAC range register
(address 0x1E to 0x1F) to 110b.
In addition to setting the default output range, the AVSS pins also set the clamp voltage for each DAC group.
Because the clamp voltage is only dependent on the voltage in the AVSS pin, changes to the DAC range
registers do not affect the clamp setting. With the AVSS pins connected to AGND, the clamp voltage for all
sixteen DACs is 0 V.

7.4.2 All-Negative DAC Range Mode
In the AMC7836 all-negative DAC range mode, each of the four DAC groups is set to a negative voltage output
range (–5 to 0 V or –10 to 0 V).
Although the maximum DAC output does not exceed 0 V, the common AVCC voltage (AVCC = AVCC_AB =
AVCC_CD) must still satisfy a minimum voltage of 4.7 V to comply with the device operating conditions. In this
case a recommended approach is to tie the AVCC, AVDD, and DVDD supply pins to a common potential.
The minimum DAC output for each group cannot be lower than the voltage on the corresponding AVSS pins
(AVEE, AVSSB, AVSSC, and AVSSD). The AVSS pins are not required to be tied to the same potential and typically
the negative voltage at each AVSS pin is dictated by the desired operating DAC negative output range. One
exception is the AVEE pin which must be the lowest potential in the device. The thermal pad should be either tied
to the same potential as the AVEE pin or left disconnected. Table 6 lists the typical configurations for this mode.

After power-on or a reset event the output range for each DAC group is set automatically by the voltage present
in the corresponding AVSS pin. In the all-negative DAC range mode all AVSS pins should be connected to a
voltage lower than AVSSTH. If this condition is satisfied, all four DAC groups will initialize by default to the –10- to
0-V range. Because the negative clamp voltage is only dependent on the voltage in the AVSS pin, the default
–10- to 0-V output range presents no risk even when the AVSS voltage is greater than –10 V. In this case the
DAC group output should be modified to the –5 to 0 V range after initialization by setting the corresponding DAC
range register (address 0x1E to 0x1F) to 101b.

7.4.3 Mixed DAC Range Mode
In the AMC7836 mixed DAC range mode, a combination of DAC groups is set to a negative voltage output range
(–5 to 0 V or –10 to 0 V) and a positive voltage output range (0 to 5 V or 0 to 10 V).
Because the maximum DAC output for each group cannot exceed the common AVCC voltage for the device
(AVCC = AVCC_AB = AVCC_CD), a DAC group in the 0 to 10 V output range forces the AVCC voltage to a value
greater or equal to 10 V. If all positive DAC groups are in the 0 to 5 V range the AVCC voltage can be set to a
value as low as 5 V.
The minimum DAC output for each group cannot be lower than the voltage on the corresponding AVSS pins
(AVEE, AVSSB, AVSSC and AVSSD). The AVSS pins are not required to be tied to the same potential and typically
the negative voltage at each AVSS pin is dictated by the desired operating DAC negative output range. One
exception is the AVEE pin which must be the lowest potential in the device. The implication of this requirement is
that if either DAC group B, C or D is set to a negative output range, DAC group A must also be set to a negative
range. The thermal pad should be either tied to the same potential as the AVEE pin or left disconnected. Table 7
lists the typical configurations for this mode.

After power-on or a reset event the output range for each DAC group is set automatically by the voltage present
in the corresponding AVSS pin. When the AVSS voltage of a DAC group is lower than the threshold value, AVSSTH,
the output for that DAC group is automatically configured to the –10 to 0 V range. Conversely, if the AVSS voltage
of the DAC group is higher than AVSSTH, the DAC-group output is automatically set to the 0 to 5 V range. The
output for any of the DAC groups can be modified after initialization by setting the corresponding DAC range
register (address 0x1E to 0x1F).
In addition to setting the default output range, the AVSS pins also set the clamp voltage for each DAC group.
Because the clamp voltage is only dependent on the voltage in the AVSS pin, changes to the DAC range
registers do not affect the clamp setting.
NOTE
Although not a recommended operating condition, the device allows a DAC group to
operate in a positive output range even if the clamp voltage is negative (AVSS connected
to a negative supply voltage).

7.5 Programming
The AMC7836 device is controlled through a flexible four-wire serial interface that is compatible with SPI-type
interfaces used on many microcontrollers and DSP controllers. The interface provides read and write (R/W)
access to all registers of the AMC7836 device.
Each serial-interface access cycle is exactly (N + 2) bytes long, where N is the number of data bytes. Asserting
the CS pin low initiates a frame. The frame ends when the CS pin is deasserted high. In MSB-first mode, the first
bit transferred is the R/W bit. The next 15 bits are the register address (32768 addressable registers), and the
remaining bits are data. For all writes, data is committed in bytes as the eight data bit of a data field that is
clocked in on the rising edge of SCLK. If the write access is not an even multiple of 8 clocks, the trailing data bits
are not committed. On a read access, data is clocked out on the falling edge of the serial interface clock, SCLK,
on the SDO pin.
Figure 61 and Figure 62 show the access protocol used by the interface.

Figure 62. Serial Interface Read Bus Cycle
Streaming mode is supported for operations that require large amounts of data to be passed to or from the
AMC7836. In streaming mode multiple bytes of data can be written to or read from the AMC7836 without
specifically providing instructions for each byte. Streaming mode is implemented by continually holding the CS
pin active and continuing to shift new data in or old data out of the device.
The instruction phase includes the starting address. The AMC7836 device begins reading or writing data to this
address and continues as long as the CS pin is asserted and single byte writes have not been enabled in the
interface configuration 1 register (address 0x01). The AMC7836 device automatically increments or decrements
the address depending on the setting of the address ascension bit in the interface configuration 0 register
(address 0x00).
If the address is decrementing and address 0x0000 is reached, the next address used is 0x7FFF. If the address
is incrementing and address 0x7FFF is reached, the next address used is 0x0000. Care should be taken when
writing to address 0x0000 and 0x0001 as writing to these addresses may change the configuration of the serial
interface. Therefore address 0x0010 should be the first (ascending) or last (descending) address accessed in
streaming mode.
Figure 63 and Figure 64 show the access protocol used in streaming mode.

0: Direct mode. The analog inputs specified in the ADC
channel registers are converted sequentially one time.
When one set of conversions is complete, the ADC is idle
and waits for a new trigger.
1: Auto mode. The analog inputs specified in the AMC
channel registers are converted sequentially and
repeatedly. When one set of conversions is complete, the
ADC multiplexer returns to the first channel and repeats the
process. The ADC-UPDATE bit in register 0x0F must be
used to initiate the transfer of the latest conversion data to

7.6.9 Status Registers: Address 0x70 through 0x72
The AMC7836 device continuously monitors all general purpose analog inputs and local temperature sensor
during normal operation. When any input is out of the specified range N consecutive times, the corresponding
alarm bit is set (1). If the input returns to the normal range before N consecutive times, the corresponding alarm
bit remains clear (0). This configuration avoids any false alarms. When an alarm status occurs, the
corresponding alarm bit is set (1). When the corresponding bit in the ALARMOUT Source Registers is cleared
(0), the ALARMOUT pin is latched.
Whenever an alarm status bit is set, it remains set until the event that caused it is resolved and its status register
is read. Reading the Alarm Status Registers clears the alarm status bits. The alarm bit can only be cleared by
reading its Alarm Status register after the event is resolved, or by hardware reset, software reset, or power-on
reset. All alarm status bits are cleared when reading the Alarm Status registers, and all these bits are reasserted
if the out-of-limit condition still exists after the next conversion cycle, unless otherwise noted.

7.6.11 Out-Of-Range ADC Thresholds: Address 0x80 through 0x93
The unipolar analog inputs (LV_ADC16 to LV_ADC20) and the local temperature sensor implement an out-ofrange alarm function. The Upper-Thresh and Lower-Thresh registers define the upper bound and lower bounds
for these inputs. This window determines whether the analog input or temperature is out-of-range. When the
input is outside the window, the corresponding CH-ALR-n bit in the Status Register is set to 1. For normal
operation, the value of the upper threshold must be greater than the value of lower threshold; otherwise, an
alarm is always indicated. The analog input threshold values are specified in straight binary format while the local
temperature ones are specified in two’s complement format.

8 Application and Implementation
NOTE
Information in the following applications sections is not part of the TI component
specification, and TI does not warrant its accuracy or completeness. TI’s customers are
responsible for determining suitability of components for their purposes. Customers should
validate and test their design implementation to confirm system functionality.
8.1 Application Information
The AMC7836 device is a highly integrated, low-power, analog monitoring and control solution that includes a
21-channel (12-bit) ADC, 16-channel (12-bit) DACs, eight GPIO, and a local temperature sensor. Although the
device can be used in many different closed-loop systems, including industrial control and test and
measurement, the device is largely used as a power amplifier controller in multi-channel RF communication
applications.
Power amplifiers (PAs) include transistor technologies that are extremely temperature sensitive, and require DC
biasing circuits to optimize RF performance, power efficiency, and stability. The AMC7836 device provides 16
DAC channels which can be used to adjust the power amplifier bias points in response to temperature changes.
The device also includes an internal local temperature sensor, and 21 ADC channels for general-purpose
monitoring.
Current and temperature sensing are typically implemented in power amplifier controller applications. PA drain
current sensing is implemented by measuring the differential voltage drop across a shunt resistor. Temperature
variations during PA operation can be detected either through the AMC7836 internal temperature sensor or
through remote temperature ICs or thermistors configured to interface with the ADC analog inputs available in
the device. Figure 115 shows the block diagram for these different systems.

Application Information (continued)
8.1.1 Temperature Sensing Applications
The AMC7836 device contains one local temperature and five unipolar analog inputs that are easily configurable
to interface with remote temperature-sensor circuits. The integrated temperature sensor and analog input
registers automatically update with every conversion. Figure 116 shows an example of a remote temperature
sensor connection.
The selected temperature sensor is the LM50 device, a high precision integrated-circuit temperature sensor that
operates in the –40°C to 125°C temperature range using a single positive supply. The full-scale output of the
temperature sensor ranges from 100 mV to 1.75 V for the operational temperature range. In an extremely noisy
environment, additional filtering is recommended. A typical value for the bypass capacitor is 0.1 µF from the V+
pin to GND. A high-quality ceramic type NP0 or X7R is recommended because of optimal performance across
temperature and very low dissipation factor.

Application Information (continued)
8.1.2 Current Sensing Applications
In applications that require current sensing of the power amplifier, an external high-side current sense amplifier
can be added and configured to the unipolar ADC inputs. Figure 117 shows this design.
The LMP8480 device is a precision current sense device that amplifies the small differential voltage developed
across a current-sense resistor in the presence of high input common-mode voltages. The LMP8480 device
accepts input signals with a common-mode voltage range from 4 V to 76 V with a bandwidth of 270 kHz. The
LMP8480 device offers different fixed gain settings. The optimal gain setting is dependent on the accuracy
requirement of the application. To maintain precision over temperature, the output of the LMP8480 device should
be directly connected to the AMC7836 unipolar ADC inputs. If the output range of the LMP8480 device is scaled
by a voltage divider, as shown in Figure 117, an output amplifier may be required to drive the ADC unipolar input
to ensure a low impedance source. If the series resistance, in this case R4, is low enough then the buffer may
not be required because the LMP8480 device is capable of driving the input of the AMC7836 unipolar ADC
channel.
NOTE
The external resistors will cause some small error because of temperature drift and the
input bias current of the operation amplifier.
Figure 117 also shows a simple method to ensure proper power sequencing of the power amplifier by adding a
series PMOS transistor to the PA drain terminal. The activation of the PMOS transistor connects the PAVDD
voltage supply to the drain pin of the power amplifier. The PMOS transistor is driven with a voltage divider that
swings from the PAVDD voltage to PAVDD × (R2 / (R1 + R2)). The NMOS shown in Figure 117 is connected to a
microcontroller output that controls the state of the PMOS transistor.

8.2.2 Detailed Design Procedure
Use the following parameters to facilitate the design process:
• AVCC and AVEE voltage values
• ADC input voltage range
• DAC Output voltage Ranges
8.2.2.1 ADC Input Conditioning
The AMC7836 device has an ADC with 21 analog inputs for external voltage sensing. Sixteen of these inputs are
bipolar and the other five are unipolar. The bipolar inputs (ADC_0 through ADC_15) range is –12.5 to 12.5 V,
and the unipolar analog inputs (LV_ADC16 through LV_ADC20) range is 0 to 2 × Vref. The ADC operates from
an internal 2.5 V reference (Vref, measured at the REF_CMP pin). For additional noise filtering, a 4.7-µF
capacitor should be connected between the REF_CMP and AGND2 pins. A high-quality ceramic type NP0 or
X7R is recommended because of the optimal performance of the capacitor across temperature and very-low
dissipation factor.
The ADC timing signals are driven from an on-chip temperature compensated 4-MHz oscillator. The on-chip
oscillator is primarily responsible for the sampling frequency of the ADC. The sampling frequency of the ADC is
dynamic and dependent on the acquisition and conversion time of each channel. Table 64 lists the relationship
between the total update time and the internal oscillator frequency.

The minimum and maximum oscillator frequency specifications in conjunction with the number of clocks required
for the unipolar, bipolar and temperature sensor inputs should be applied to Equation 5 to calculate the total
update time range.

TS is the total update time
BCLK is the total bipolar clocks
#BCH is the number of active bipolar inputs
UCLK is the total unipolar clocks
#UCH is the number of active unipolar inputs
TCKL is the total internal temperature-sensor clocks
#TCH is the number of active internal temperature sensor channels; either 1 or 0
ƒOSC is the internal oscillator frequency
(5)
The following is an example of a complete calculation of the total update time range. In this example, the ADC
conversion rate is set to 00 and the following ADC input channels are used:
• Bipolar channels: ADC_1 through ADC_5 (5 active bipolar channels)
• Unipolar channels: LV_ADC16 through LV_ADC18 (3 active unipolar channels)
• Internal temperature sensor (1 active temperature channel)
Table 64 gives the total number of clocks required for each ADC input under the example conditions.
For the minimum specified oscillator frequency of 3.7 MHz, and with the ADC conversion rate set to 00, use
Equation 6 to calculate the total maximum update time for this example.

Therefore, the total update time range is 430.93 µs to 500.811 µs.

During the conversion, the input current per channel varies with the total update time which is determined by the
number and type of channels (NCH) and the conversion rate setting of the CONV-RATE bit in the ADC
configuration register (address 0x10).
NOTE
The source of the analog input voltage must be able to charge the input capacitance to a
12-bit settling level within the acquisition time.
8.2.2.2 DAC Output Range Selection
The AMC7836 device includes 16 DACs split into four groups, each with four DACs. All of the DACs in a given
group share the same output voltage range. The output range for each DAC group is independent and is
programmable to either –10 to 0 V, –5 to 0 V, 0 to 10 V or 0 to 5 V. The DAC output ranges are configured by
following the configuration settings listed in Table 1.
Each DAC includes an output buffer is capable of generating rail-to rail voltages. The Electrical Characteristics:

9 Power Supply Recommendations
The preferred (not required) pin order for applying power is IOVDD, DVDD and AVDD, AVCC and lastly AVEE,
AVSSB, AVSSC, and AVSSD.When power sequencing, ensure that all digital pins are not powered or in an active
state while the IOVDD pin ramps. Proper sequencing of the digital pins can be accomplished by attaching 10-kΩ
pullup resistors to the IOVDD pin, or pulldown resistors to the DGND pin. See the supply voltage ranges in the
Recommended Operating Conditions table.
In applications where a negative voltage is applied to AVEE, AVSSB, AVSSC, and AVSSD first, the user may notice
some small negative voltages at other supply pins, such as the AVDD, DVDD, and AVCC pins. The negative
voltages at the supply pins may exceed the values listed in the Absolute Maximum Ratings table, but because
these voltages are created from intrinsic circuitry, the voltage levels are safe for operation.
In the case where all DAC outputs are in clamp state with AVEE = AVSSB = AVSSC = AVSSD = –12 V, the
negative voltage observed on the other supply pins can be as low as –620 mV.
Although these negative voltages are observed on the pins, the user must still adhere to the guidelines specified
in the Absolute Maximum Ratings table and verify that the inputs are driven within the range specified in the
table. The user should also ensure that current is only applied when operating with voltages between the ranges
listed in the Absolute Maximum Ratings table.

SLAS986D – NOVEMBER 2014 – REVISED FEBRUARY 2018
In applications where the DAC channels are driving a large capacitive load and the output changes significantly
(a full scale transition, for instance), the output current of the affected channels may drive to the short circuit
current value as described in the specification table (see Table 64) while the capacitive load is being charged.
This temporary increase in output current may inadvertently cause the AVCC or AVSS to collapse, potentially
resulting in a POR event. It is recommended that the power supply solution for AVCC and AVSS be capable of
supplying short circuit current for all DAC channels with capacitive loads simultaneously to ensure proper device
performance.
9.1 Device Reset Options
9.1.1 Power-on-Reset (POR)
The AMC7836 device includes a power-on reset (POR) function. After all supplies have been established, a POR
event is issued. The POR causes all registers to initialize to the default values, and communication with the
device is valid only after a 250 µs power-on reset delay.
The default operation is power-down mode (register 0x02) in which the device is non-operational except for the
communication interface as determined by the power-down registers. Before enabling normal operation, a
hardware reset should be issued.
A power failure on DVDD, AVDD, AVCC or IOVDD has the potential to initiate a power-on-reset event. As long as
DVDD, AVDD, AVCC, and IOVDD remain above the minimum recommended operating conditions a power failure
event will not occur. When any of these supplies drops below the minimum recommended operating condition
the device may or may not imitate a POR. In this case, issuing a hardware reset or proper POR is recommended
to resume proper operation. To ensure a proper POR event, the DVDD supply must fall below 750 mV. If the
DVDD supply falls below 2.7 V a hardware reset or proper POR must be issued.
9.1.2 Hardware Reset
A device hardware reset event is initiated by a minimum 20-ns logic low on the RESET pin. A hardware reset
causes all registers to initialize to the default values and communication with the device is valid only after a 250µs reset delay.
9.1.2.1 Software Reset
A software reset event is initiated by setting the SOFT-RESET bit in the interface configuration 0 register (0x00).
A software reset causes all registers, except 0x00 and 0x01, to initialize to the default values and communication
with the device is valid only after a 100-ns delay.
10 Layout
10.1 Layout Guidelines
•
•
•
•
•
All power supply pins should be bypassed to ground with a low-ESR ceramic bypass capacitor. The typical
recommended bypass capacitor has a value of 10-µF and is ceramic with a X7R or NP0 dielectric.
To minimize interaction between the analog and digital return currents, the digital and analog sections should
have separate ground planes that eventually connect at some point.
To reduce noise on the internal reference, a 4.7-µF capacitor is recommended between the REF_CMP pin
and ground.
A high-quality ceramic type NP0 or X7R capacitor is recommended because of the optimal performance
across temperature very-low dissipation factor of the capacitor.
The digital and analog sections should have proper placement with respect to the digital pins and analog pins
of the AMC7836 device (see Figure 122). The separation of analog and digital blocks allows for better design
and practice as it ensures less coupling into neighboring blocks and minimizes the interaction between analog
and digital return currents.
