Product Details

The LTC7543/LTC8143 are serial-input 12-bit multiplying digital-to-analog converters (DACs). They are superior pin compatible replacements for the AD7543 and DAC-8143. Improvements include better accuracy, better stability over temperature and supply variations, lower sensitivity to output amplifier offset, tighter timing specifications and lower output capacitance.

An easy-to-use serial interface includes an asynchronous CLEAR input for systems requiring initialization to a known state. The LTC8143 has a serial data out put to allow daisy-chaining multiple DACs on a 3-wire interface bus.

These DACs are extremely versatile. They can be used for 2-quadrant and 4-quadrant multiplying, programmable gain and single supply applications, such as noninverting voltage output and biased or offset ground mode.

Parts are available in 16-pin PDIP and SO packages and are specified over the extended industrial temperature range, −40°C to 85°C.

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.
