Signal Processing Technologies Introduces 13-Bit Octal D/A Converter


SPT5420 features eight DACs in one small package with ultrafast settling time of 15 µs.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - October 29, 2001 - Signal Processing Technologies, Inc. (SPT) announces the SPT5420, an octal 13-bit, parallel input, voltage output, digital-to-analog
converter (DAC) tailored for automatic test equipment.

With its very low power dissipation (195 mW), ultrafast settling time (15 µs to ±0.5 LSB), and low price, the SPT5420 offers a very attractive alternative to the nearest competitor.

"The SPT5420 is particularly suited for testers of memory, logic, and mixed signal semiconductors," says Olav Lindquist, SPT's marketing manager. "It is also ideal for instrumentation and process control applications."

The SPT5420 is pin-compatible with Analog Devices' AD7839.

Pricing and Availability

The SPT5420 is available in a 10 x 10 mm, 44-lead metric quad flat pack (MQFP) plastic package over the commercial temperature range of 0 to +70 degrees C. Samples and production quantities
are now available.
