The AD5429/AD5439/AD54491 are CMOS 8-, 10-, and 12-bit
dual-channel current output digital-to-analog converters,
respectively. These devices operate from a 2.5 V to 5.5 V power
supply, making them suited to battery-powered and other
The applied external reference input voltage (VREF) determines
the full-scale output current. An integrated feedback resistor
(RFB) provides temperature tracking and full-scale voltage
output when combined with an external current-to-voltage
These DACs utilize a double-buffered, 3-wire serial interface
that is compatible with SPI®, QSPI™, MICROWIRE™, and most
DSP interface standards. In addition, a serial data out pin (SDO)
allows daisy-chaining when multiple packages are used. Data
readback allows the user to read the contents of the DAC
register via the SDO pin. On power-up, the internal shift
register and latches are filled with zeros and the DAC outputs
are at zero scale.
As a result of manufacture on a CMOS submicron process,
these parts offer excellent 4-quadrant multiplication character-
istics, with large signal multiplying bandwidths of 10 MHz.
The AD5429/AD5439/AD5449 DAC are available in 16-lead
