The AD5371* contains 40 14-bit DACs in a single 80-lead LQFP or 100-ball CSP_BGA. The device provides buffered voltage outputs with a span of 4× the reference voltage. The gain and offset of each DAC can be independently trimmed to remove errors. For even greater flexibility, the device is divided into five groups of eight DACs. Three offset DACs allow the output range of the groups to be adjusted. Group 0 can be adjusted by Offset DAC 0, Group 1 can be adjusted by Offset DAC 1, and Group 2 to Group 4 can be adjusted by Offset DAC 2.
The AD5371 offers guaranteed operation over a wide supply range, with VSS from −16.5 V to −4.5 V and VDD from 9 V to 16.5 V. The output amplifier headroom requirement is 1.4 V operating with a load current of 1 mA.
The AD5371 has a high speed serial interface that is compatible with SPI, QSPI™, MICROWIRE™, and DSP interface standards and can handle clock speeds of up to 50 MHz. It also has a 100 MHz low voltage differential signaling (LVDS) serial interface.
The DAC registers are updated on reception of new data. All the outputs can be updated simultaneously by taking the LDAC input low. Each channel has a programmable gain and an offset adjust register to allow removal of gain and offset errors.
Each DAC output is gained and buffered on chip with respect to an external SIGGNDx input. The DAC outputs can also be switched to SIGGNDx via the CLR pin.

Product Lifecycle Production
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.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The AD5371 evaluation board can be used as a stand alone board with control coming from an external DSP or micro-controller or it can be connected to a PC. Software is provided which can be used to program the registers of the AD536x. Control of the AD536x is achieved via a USB interface.

Tools & Simulations
Precision DAC Error Budget Tool
The Precision DAC Error Budget Tool is a web application that calculates the DC Accuracy of precision DAC signal chains. It shows how the static errors accumulate throughout your signal chain to quickly evaluate the design tradeoffs. Calculations include the DC errors introduced by Voltage References, Operation Amplifiers and Precision DACs.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
