Product Details

The DAC8512 is a complete serial input, 12-bit, voltage output digital-to-analog converter designed to operate from a single +5 V supply. It contains the DAC, input shift register and latches, reference and a rail-to-rail output amplifier. Built using a CBCMOS process, these monolithic DACs offer the user low cost, and ease of use in +5 V only systems.

Coding for the DAC8512 is natural binary with the MSB loaded first. The output op amp can swing to either rail and is set to a range of 0 V to +4.095 V-for a one-millivolt-per-bit resolution. It is capable of sinking and sourcing 5 mA. An on-chip reference is laser trimmed to provide an accurate full-scale output voltage of 4.095 V.

Serial interface is high speed, three-wire, DSP compatible with data in (SDI), clock(CLK) and load strobe (LD). There is also a chip-select pin for connecting multiple DACs.

A CLR input sets the output to zero scale at power on or upon user demand. The DAC8512 is specified over the extended industrial (-40°C to +85°C) temperature range. DAC8512s are available in plastic DIPs and SO-8 surface mount packages.

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.
