Product Details

The DAC-8228 is a dual 8-bit, voltage output, CMOS, D/A converter in a single chip. It was designed to drop into AD7528 / AD7628 sockets eliminating two external op amps in applications such as hard disk drives. These applications generally operate the AD7528 / AD7628 with zero volts applied to VREF and offset AGND to +2.5 or +5 volts. The DAC-8228 is tested under both these conditions.

The DAC-8228 can also be used in those applications requiring a unipolar output voltage. It can deliver an output voltage between 0V and +10V with VDD = +14V (maximum output voltage is VDD -4V). The DAC-8228's reference input can accept a negative voltage from 0V to -10V (the DAC's internal unity-gain inverting amplifier inverts the input signal). Choose the DAC-8229 for bipolar operation.

The DAC8228 offers CerDIP and plastic packaged devices in the extended industrial temperature range of -40° to +85°C. Applications requiring the military temperature range should use the DAC-8229. To make the DAC-8229 pin and functionally compatible with the DAC-8228, AGND A and AGND B should be tied together to function as VZ, and VSS connected to GND.

The DAC-8228 consists of two CMOS voltage output amplifiers, two high-accuracy R-2R resistor ladder networks, interface control logic, and two 8-bit registers. An internal regulator maintains TTL logic compatibility and fast microprocessor interface timing over the full VDD range.

The DAC-8228 dissipates only 90mW in the space saving 20-pin 0.3" DIP or the 20-lead SO surface mount package. Its compact size, low power, and economical cost per channel, makes it attractive for applications requiring multiple D/A converters without sacrificing circuit-board space. Reduced parts count also improves system reliability.

Using PMI's advanced oxide-isolated, silicon-gate CMOS process, coupled with its highly-stable thin-film resistor ladder, allows the DAC-8228 to offer superior matching and temperature tracking between DACs.

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.
