Current Source-Sink D/A Converters

Analog Devices’ current source D/A converters (DACs) portfolio is ideal for photonics control applications where low current noise density, low dropout voltage, and high power efficiency, in addition to high channel density, is critical to system performance. The flexibility of the configurable current source D/A converter outputs, and 300 mA current delivery, make them suitable for resistive heaters and proportional solenoid drive.


Our current source DACs are suitable for many industrial applications, such as controlling temperature, light, and movement without derating over temperatures ranging from –30°C to +85°C. Products in this portfolio have been designed for autofocus, image stabilization, and optical zoom applications in camera phones, digital still cameras, and camcorders.
