Product Details

The LTC1591/LTC1597 are pin compatible, parallel input 14-bit and 16-bit multiplying current output DACs that operate from a single 5V supply. INL and DNL are accurate to 1LSB over the industrial temperature range in both 2- and 4-quadrant multiplying modes. True 16-bit 4-quadrant multiplication is achieved with on-chip 4-quadrant multiplication resistors.

These DACs include an internal deglitcher circuit that reduces the glitch impulse to less than 2nV-s (typ). The asynchronous CLR pin resets the LTC1591/LTC1597 to zero scale and LTC1591-1/LTC1597-1 to mid-scale.

The LTC1591/LTC1597 are available in 28-pin SSOP and PDIP packages and are specified over the industrial temperature range.

For serial interface 16-bit current output DACs refer to the LTC1595/LTC1596 data sheet.

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.
