Two New Multiple M-DACs Save Space and Power in Board Designs

AD396 Quadruple 14-Bit Four-Quadrant Voltage-Output DAC; AD7228 Octuple Monolithic 8-Bit Voltage-Output DAC

Multiple digital-to-analog converters in a single package are useful in applications where many DACS are required and cost or space must be saved—or system reliability improved through the reduction of parallel bus wiring. Both of these devices interface to an 8-bit bus, both have voltage outputs (i.e., on-board amplifiers), both retain the flexibility of external fixed or variable references, both take advantage of the low power-dissipation of CMOS, and both are available in versions that meet MIL-STD-833.
