Product Details

The AD5516 is a 16-channel 12-bit bipolar voltage-output DAC packaged in 74-ball CSPBGA. The part contains a special Increment/Decrement mode which allows 14-bit resolution to be achieved. The output voltage range is fixed at ±2.5 V (AD5516-1), ±5 V (AD5516-2) and ±10 V (AD5516-3). The DAC registers are written to via the 3-wire serial interface. The serial interface is compatible with standard SPI, MICROWIRE and DSP interface standards and operates at clock rates up to 20 MHz. Access to the feedback resistor in each channel is provided via RFB0 to RFB15 pins.

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.
