UCD3138: Using a diode for clamping at EADC

Part Number: UCD3138

Hi Experts,

 - I would like to use a diode for clamping at the EADC, illustrated below. Is it ok? Will it be hazardous to UCD?

ps. I need only 0~0.6V sense range, but input voltage may have max 2.5V.

  • you can use a voltage divider to scale down the input signal. The measurement range of EADC is 1.6V, but 2.5V will not damage UCD.

    Hi Bosheng sir,

     - But I don't want to use a voltage divider, since that will decrease the resolution.

     - Is it OK to put a diode there?

  • In reply to Jack Wang:

    yes, it is OK to put a diode there

  • In reply to Bosheng Sun:

    Got it. Thank you, sir.
