Analog Devices Inc. has introduced the AD5689R D/A converter. This 16-bit dual nanoDAC+ continues the series of ADI’s nanoDAC products offering high performance in smaller packages.
With relative accuracy of ±2-LSB INL, 2-ppm/°C 2.5-V reference, and space saving packages, this combination allows analog designers to address a wider range of applications without having to trade off performance for footprint. The series provides a straightforward pin compatible 10-bit to 16-bit upgrade/downgrade path for applications in a wide range of markets, including communications infrastructure, industrial process control, healthcare and instrumentation.
The AD5689R also includes useful pin functions such as VLOGIC facilitating 1.8-V, 3-V and 5-V logic levels and a GAIN pin enabling the output range to be doubled. The series has both SPI and I2C interface options.
±2 LSB-INL max - suits open loop applications
2-ppm/°C 2.5-V reference – saves board space and removes calibration requirements over temperature
Total Unadjusted Error 2-mV - eliminates need for initial calibration/adjustment
3-mm × 3-mm 16-lead LFCSP and 16-lead TSSOP - for shrinking board/module sizes
