The AD5628/AD5648/AD5668 devices are low power, octal,
12-/14-/16-bit, buffered voltage-output DACs. All devices
operate from a single 2.7 V to 5.5 V supply and are guaranteed
monotonic by design. The AD5668 and AD5628 are available in
both a 4 mm × 4 mm LFCSP and a 16-lead TSSOP, while the
AD5648 is available in both a 14-lead and 16-lead TSSOP.
The AD5628/AD5648/AD5668 have an on-chip reference with
an internal gain of 2. The AD5628-1/AD5648-1/AD5668-1 have
a 1.25 V 5 ppm/°C reference, giving a full-scale output range
of 2.5 V; the AD5628-2/AD5648-2/AD5668-2 and AD5668-3 have
a 2.5 V 5 ppm/°C reference, giving a full-scale output range of
5 V. The on-board reference is off at power-up, allowing the use
of an external reference. The internal reference is enabled via a
The part incorporates a power-on reset circuit that ensures that the
DAC output powers up to 0 V (AD5628-1/AD5648-1/AD5668-1,
AD5628-2/AD5648-2/AD5668-2) or midscale (AD5668-3) and
remains powered up at this level until a valid write takes place.
The part contains a power-down feature that reduces the current
consumption of the device to 400 nA at 5 V and provides software-

selectable output loads while in power-down mode for any or all
DAC channels. The outputs of all DACs can be updated simul-
taneously using the LDAC function, with the added functionality
of user-selectable DAC channels to simultaneously update. There
is also an asynchronous CLR that updates all DACs to a user-
programmable code—zero scale, midscale, or full scale.
The AD5628/AD5648/AD5668 utilize a versatile 3-wire serial
interface that operates at clock rates of up to 50 MHz and is
compatible with standard SPI®, QSPI™, MICROWIRE™, and
DSP interface standards. The on-chip precision output amplifier
enables rail-to-rail output swing.
