This common-mode capacitors' size results in a common-mode cutoff frequency that is roughly 10 times larger than the differential filter, making the matching of the common-mode cutoff frequencies less critical.

Common Mode and Differential Mode Filters Implemented in Design for RTD The device uses a linear-phase finite impulse response (FIR) digital filter that performs both filtering and decimation of the digital data stream coming from the modulator. The digital filter is automatically adjusted for the different data rates and always settles within a single cycle. Only at data rates of 5 SPS and 20 SPS can the filter be configured to reject 50-Hz or 60-Hz line frequencies or to simultaneously reject 50 Hz and 60 Hz. Two bits (50/60[1:0]) in the configuration register are used to configure the filter accordingly. Figure 47.

The granularity on these lookup tables is also very precise—approximately 1°C for each lookup value. To save microcontroller memory and development time, an interpolation technique applied to these values can be used. An example of this method when converting from voltage to temperature with eight lookup table entries is shown in Figure 48. To perform a linear interpolation using a lookup table, first compare the measured RTD resistance to values given in the lookup table, until the lookup table value exceeds the measured value that is being converted. Then, use Equation 32 to convert the measured RTD resistance to temperature, where R LT is the resistance lookup table array, and T LT is the temperature lookup table array. This operation involves four additions, one multiplication, and one division step, respectively. This operation can be done easily on most 16- and 32-bit microcontrollers. Figure 48.

The more entries on the lookup table, the more accurate the results are. However, the larger number of entries on the lookup table uses more memory space. (32) Figure 49.
