Analog Devices Inc. AD5679 & AD5679R 16-Bit, 16-Channel nanoDAC+

Analog Devices Inc. AD5679 and AD5679R 16-Bit, 16-Channel nanoDAC+ are low power buffered voltage output Digital-to-Analog Converters. The AD5679R variant includes a 2.5V, 2ppm/°C internal reference, which is enabled by default. The AD5679 requires an external reference. The AD5679 and AD5679R DACs feature a 50MHz Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) with readback or daisy chain. Both devices operate from a single 2.7V to 5.5V supply range and are guaranteed monotonic by design. These devices incorporate a Power-On Reset (POR) circuit that ensures the DAC outputs power up to and remains at zero-scale or midscale until a valid write. Analog Devices Inc. AD5679 and AD5679R DACs also feature a power-down mode that reduces the current consumption to 2μA. These devices are available in a compact 28-lead Lead Frame Chip Scale Package (LFCSP) and are RoHS compliant.
