Analog Devices' nanoDAC+™ Converters Expand Industry's BestD/A Converter Performance and SmallestPackages

NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Analog Devices, Inc. (NAS: ADI) introduced today the AD5689R D/A converter. This 16-bit dual nanoDAC+ continues the series of ADIs 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.

AD5689R 16-bit nanoDAC+ Key Features:

  • ±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
  • 4-KV HBM ESD rating - provides system robustness
