Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) introduced today the AD5683R D/A converter. This16-bit single nanoDAC+ continues the series of ADIs nanoDAC® products offering high performance in smaller packages. Offering value without compromise with relative accuracy of ±2-LSB INL, 2-ppm / degree 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 accuracy for footprint. With 16, 14, 12 and 10-Bit options available, The AD5683R D/A converter provides a versatile pin-compatible upgrade/downgrade path for performance in a wide range of markets including communications infrastructure, industrial process control, healthcare and instrumentation.
AD5683R 16-bit nanoDAC+ features include: ±2 LSB-INL max – suits open loop applications; 2-ppm / degree 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; 2-mm - 2-mm 8-lead LFCSP and 10-lead MSOP allowing more functionality within shrinking board/module sizes; 4-KV HBM ESD rating – provides system robustness; and I2C versions will be available soon.
The AD5683R can be designed into circuits for PLC, I/O cards applications with ADI's AD5750-2 which is a single-channel, low cost, precision voltage/current output driver amplifier. Unit prices, in lots of 1,000 pieces, range from $1.29 for a 19-bit device in a 10-lead MSOP package to $3.15 for a 16-bit device in a 8-lead LFCSP or 10-lead MSOP package.
