True 18-Bit DAC for Extreme Precision Applications - LTC2757

Precision digital-to-analog converters are key components in many instrumentation, industrial control and test equipment applications. When customers purchase an "N-bit" DAC, the expectation is that every parameter will be better than 1 least-significant bit. This is a difficult task, even at the 16-bit level.

The LTC2757 breaks new ground in DAC technology, achieving true 18-bit linearity and sub-part per million drift. Six SoftSpan output ranges greatly simplify the design of systems with multiple ranges. The LTC2757 can significantly improve the performance of precision systems while reducing cost by eliminating the need for temperature and linearity compensation.
