Hi guys

I am using a MAX1270 8 channel multirange ADC in an industrial application. I gather it is wise to put some sort of circuitry between the ADC and the real world... Some kind of voltage follower or buffer? Anyone got any hints/tips/circuits on doing this, I really have no idea...

thanks

What is needed in the way of more information is the nature of the analog signal that is being digitized by your ADC.

What is the frequency range, voltage range, and wave shape of your signal?

The input voltage will be either 0-5V, 0-10V, +/-5V or +/-10V DC depending upon what is being used to drive our circuit. The ADC is configurable to handle these multiple inputs.

ill have to do some tests when we get our scope on monday and get back to you on that one. our main signal is just a 0-5V DC input, we are just wanting to include the other input ranges in our design for future flexibility
