The AD7538 is a 14-bit monolithic CMOS digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that uses laser trimmed thin-film resistors to achieve excellent linearity.
The DAC is loaded by a single 14-bit wide word using standard chip select and memory write logic. Double buffering, which is optional using LDAC, allows simultaneous updates in a system containing multiple AD7538s.
A novel low leakage configuration enables the AD7538 to exhibit excellent output leakage current characteristics over the specified temperature range.
The AD7538 is manufactured using the linear-compatible CMOS (LC2MOS) process. It is speed compatible with most microprocessors and accepts TTL or CMOS logic level inputs.
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.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability.
