Double-Buffered Complete 12-Bit D/A Converter

Current-Output AD567 Interfaces with 4-, 8-, 12-, 16-Bit Buses; Laser-Wafer Trims & On-Board Buried-Zener Reference Ensure Stability

The AD567 is a complete current-output 12-bit monolithic digital-to-analog converter housed in a hermetically sealed 28-pin DIP. On board are two ranks of latches with controls, a 10-volt buried-Zener reference, a basic current-output DAC—consisting of a laser-trimmed resistance network and a set of current steering switches—plus a set of matched and tracking Si-Cr resistors for bipolar offset and for output-op-amp feedback (or for input, in a/d conversion applications).
