AD7245A FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
The AD7245A/AD7248A is an enhanced version of the industry
standard AD7245/AD7248. Improvements include operation
from 12 V to 15 V supplies, a ± 1/2 LSB linearity grade, faster
interface times and better full scale and reference variations with
VDD. Additional features include extended temperature range
operation for commercial and industrial grades.
The AD7245A/AD7248A is a complete, 12-bit, voltage output,
digital-to-analog converter with output amplifier and Zener volt-
age reference on a monolithic CMOS chip. No external user
trims are required to achieve full specified performance.
Both parts are microprocessor compatible, with high speed data
latches and double-buffered interface logic. The AD7245A ac-
cepts 12-bit parallel data which is loaded into the input latch on
the rising edge of CS or WR. The AD7248A has an 8-bit wide
data bus with data loaded to the input latch in two write opera-
tions. For both parts, an asynchronous LDAC signal transfers
data from the input latch to the DAC latch and updates the ana-
log output. The AD7245A also has a CLR signal on the DAC latch
which allows features such as power-on reset to be implemented.
The on-chip 5 V buried Zener diode provides a low noise, tem-
perature compensated reference for the DAC. For single supply
operation, two output ranges of 0 V to +5 V and 0 V to +10 V
are available, while these two ranges plus an additional ± 5 V
range are available with dual supplies. The output amplifiers are
capable of developing +10 V across a 2 kΩ load to GND.
The AD7245A/AD7248A is fabricated in linear compatible
CMOS (LC2MOS), an advanced, mixed technology process that
combines precision bipolar circuits with low power CMOS logic.
The AD7245A is available in a small, 0.3" wide, 24-pin DIP and
