Analog Devices' nanoDAC+™ Converters Offer Industry's Best D/A Converter Performance and Smallest Packages

ADI’s AD568xR nanoDAC+™ converter series features quad D/A converters with choice of 16, 14 or 12 bits of resolution in tiny packages for a wide range of instrumentation and communications applications.

May 2 2012 - Norwood, MA
  • Analog Devices, Inc., (NASDAQ: ADI) the data converter market share leader*, today 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. ADI’s new 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.

    “Customers, who previously had to trade off board area to achieve higher levels of digital-to-analog accuracy and reference drift performance now have a solution that meets all of their requirements,” said Donal Geraghty, director of Precision D/A Converters, Analog Devices. “The AD5686R delivers four D/A converters with 16-bit accuracy and a 2-ppm/°C reference in a tiny 3mm x 3mm package.”
