The AD5304/AD5314/AD5324 are quad 8-, 10-, and 12-bit buffered voltage output DACs in 10-lead MSOP and 10-lead LFCSP packages that operate from a single 2.5 V to 5.5 V supply, consuming 500 μA at 3 V. Their on-chip output amplifiers allow rail-to-rail output swing to be achieved with a slew rate of 0.7 V/μs. A 3-wire serial interface is used; it operates at clock rates up to 30 MHz and is compatible with standard SPI, QSPI, MICROWIRE, and DSP interface standards.
The references for the four DACs are derived from one reference pin. The outputs of all DACs can be updated simultaneously using the software LDAC function. The parts incorporate a power-on reset circuit, and ensure that the DAC outputs power up to 0 V and remains there until a valid write takes place to the device. The parts contain a power-down feature that reduces the current consumption of the device to 200 nA @ 5 V (80 nA @ 3 V).
The low power consumption of these parts in normal operation makes them ideally suited to portable battery-operated equipment. The power consumption is 3 mW at 5 V, 1.5 mW at 3 V, reducing to 1 μW in power-down mode.

At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
The EVAL-AD5324DBZ evaluation board is designed to quickly prototype AD5324 circuits and reduce design time. The AD5324 operates from a single 2.5 V to 5.5 V supply.
The EVAL-AD5324DBZ interfaces with the USB port of a PC via the SDP-B controller board. Software can be downloaded via the EVAL-AD5324DBZ product page that allows users to program the AD5324.
The EVAL-AD5324DBZ evaluation board requires the SDP-B controller board, which is available for order on the Analog Devices website.
Full data for the AD5324 can be found in the AD5324 data sheet available from Analog Devices and should be consulted in conjunction with user guide UG-975 when using the evaluation board.
