Analog to Digital Converter Type 2 FAQ for C2000
- 1 Introduction
- 2 Electrical Specifications
- 3 Frequently asked questions for ADC Type 2
- 3.1 Q: I measured ADCREFP and ADCREFM. In the datasheet only a typical value is specified not a min/max. How can I tell if my device is in spec?
- 3.2 Q: Can you explain more about this ADC_Cal() routine that the boot ROM calls?
- 3.3 Q: Does the ADC_cal() routine require a voltage on an ADC input pin?
- 3.4 Q: Can we still perform manual calibration like on the 280x?
This topic is a list of frequently asked questions that users have when using the Analog to Digital Converter of type 2. ADC type 2 is the 3rd generation ADC module released for the C28x devices and is found on 2833x and 2823x devices.
Electrical specifications can change between devices, peripheral types and device families. Always refer to the data manual and errata for a particular device for Electrical Specifications.

Frequently asked questions for ADC Type 2
Q: I measured ADCREFP and ADCREFM. In the datasheet only a typical value is specified not a min/max. How can I tell if my device is in spec?
- These signals are internally generated voltages for use by the internal ADC only. These are fully tested at by TI at production time and will not be out of spec for the device. The only reason these signals are brought outside the device is for external bulk cap. The Data Manual values are only there to give a ballpark of where the voltages will be and this is why there is no max/min.
Q: Can you explain more about this ADC_Cal() routine that the boot ROM calls?
- The ADC_cal() routine in the ROM of F2833x is just copying a couple of values to the ADCST and ADCOFFTRIM registers. This brings the ADC up to the specs in the datasheet.
Q: Does the ADC_cal() routine require a voltage on an ADC input pin?
- It does not require the use of any ADCINx channels.
Q: Can we still perform manual calibration like on the 280x?
- If you want to further improve the ADC offset and gain you can still do manual calibration AFTER running the ADC_cal() routine. The manual calibration would be the same as for the 280x.
