Analog Devices Expands Its Industry Leading D/A Converter Portfolio

ADI introduces AD5686/96 quad 16-bit nanoDAC+ and AD5316R/7R quad 10-bit nanoDAC® D/A converters in tiny packages, targeting a wide range of instrumentation and communications applications.

  • Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), the data converter market share leader*, today introduced a second series of quad 16- and 12-bit 3V/5V D/A converters in space-saving 16-lead LFCSP and TSSOP packages. These new AD5686/96 nanoDAC+ quad D/A converters offer the industry’s best DC performance (INL is ±2LSB max, offset error is ±1.5mV max and gain error is ±0.1% max) in the smallest package (3mm x 3mm LFCSP), with SPI or I²C interface options. Applications such as PLC (programmable logic controller) 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 AD568x/9x series’ industry leading performance.

    Also today, ADI introduced the AD5316R and AD5317R quad 10-bit nanoDACs®. Both products offer similar DC performance to the AD5686/96, high robustness (up to 4-kV ESD), and low drift on-chip 2.5-V voltage reference in a 3mm x 3mm footprint. These D/A converters were developed to provide flexibility in terms of DAC output range and to meet the needs of cost sensitive applications with limited board space.
