Hi Experts,

Our customer is evaluating our ADS8900B and see some comments regarding to the MultiSPI Configuration stated in TIDA-01351, but they want to know what's the advantage and disadvantage for these two configurations, and which one is popular in now day applications we prefered?

Thanks a lot!

  • Hello Jacky,

    The biggest advantage of Figure 6 is the reduction in the number of IO lines needed to interface to 2 ADC's, but you are limited to simultaneous sampling. Figure 7 will provide more flexibility and full independent control, allowing both simultaneous or independent sampling, but requires more IO lines.

    Regarding specifics for ultrasound application, I am asking the systems team to comment.
