16-Bit, Serial Input, Loop-Powered, 4mA to 20mA DAC
The AD5421 includes a regulated voltage output that is used to power itself and other devices in the transmitter. This regulator provides a regulated 1.8 V to 12 V output voltage. The AD5421 also contains 1.22 V and 2.5 V references, thus eliminating the need for a discrete regulator and voltage reference.
The AD5421 can be used with standard HART® FSK protocol communication circuitry without any degradation in specified performance. The high speed serial interface is capable of opera-ting at 30 MHz and allows for simple connection to commonly used microprocessors and microcontrollers via a SPI-compatible, 3-wire interface.
The AD5421 is guaranteed monotonic to 16 bits. It provides 0.0015% integral nonlinearity, 0.0012% offset error, and 0.0006% gain error under typical conditions.
The AD5421 is available in a 28-lead TSSOP and a 32-lead LFCSP specified over the extended industrial temperature range of −40°C to +105°C.
