ADI unveils converters for performance and small package advantage
5/2/2012 4:53 AM EDT
Analog Devices introduced a series of quad 16-, 14- and 12-bit D/A converters in space-saving 16-lead surface-mount LFCSP or leaded TSSOP packages. The company claims that the AD568xR nanoDAC+ series of quad D/A converters has the industry’s best DC performance (INL, offset error and gain error) and smallest package size, with a choice of on-chip or external reference and SPI or I²C control interface.
Applications such as PLC I/O cards, digital oscilloscopes, signal generators and optical modules that require low power, rail-to-rail, single-supply D/A converters will benefit from the AD568xR series’ industry leading performance.
Features and Benefits:
- High relative accuracy (±2LSB max at 16-bits) – suits open-loop applications
- On-chip 2.5-V, 2-ppm/°C integrated reference and low drift saves board space and removes need for calibration over temperature
- Tiny 3mm x 3mm, chip-scale 16-pin LFCSP package suits ever-shrinking board sizes (e.g. optical modules, PLC I/O cards)
- 4-kV HBM ESD rating provides increased robustness
- Choice of resolution (16, 14 or 12 bits) and interface (SPI or I²C) allows users to select the exact part required and still have a pin-compatible upgrade/down-grade path
- Available in high and mid-range performance grades (B and A) to match specific system performance and cost targets
