Analog Devices' nanoDAC+™ Converters Expand Industry's Best D/A Converter Performance and Smallest Packages00:01 EST Wednesday, February 20, 2013 NORWOOD, Mass. (Business Wire) -- Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today the AD5689R D/A converter. This 16-bit dual nanoDAC+ continues the series of ADIs nanoDAC® products offering high performance in smaller packages. With relative accuracy of ±2-LSB INL, 2-ppm/°C 2.5-V reference, and space saving packages, this combination allows analog designers to address a wider range of applications without having to trade off performance for footprint. The series provides a straightforward pin compatible 10-bit to 16-bit upgrade/downgrade path for applications in a wide range of markets including communications infrastructure, industrial process control, healthcare and instrumentation. Download data sheet, order samples and evaluation boards: Connect with engineers and ADI product experts on EngineerZone™, an online technical support community: Find latest information on nanoDAC solutions from ADI: The AD5689R also includes useful pin functions such as VLOGIC facilitating 1.8-V, 3-V and 5-V logic levels and a GAIN pin enabling the output range to be doubled. The series has both SPI and I2C interface options.
