Data Converters come in 2.9 x 2.8 mm SOT-23 package.

Press Release Summary:




Available in 8-lead packaging, nanoDAC(TM) AD5060 and AD5660 digital-to-analog converters offer 16-bit data conversion while integrating additional circuit components on-chip. Model AD5060 delivers 1 LSB max linearity error (INL), including its on-chip output buffer amplifier for open loop systems. For closed loop systems, AD5660 contains integrated 10 ppm/°C max on-chip reference and delivers 16 LSB max INL. Both are suited for space-constrained test and measurement equipment.

Analog Devices Delivers Industry's Smallest 16-Bit Data Converters



AD5060/AD5660 - industry's first 16-bit DACs in SOT-23 packages

- New nanoDAC(TM) converters resolve space and performance challenges for industrial, and test and measurement applications.

NORWOOD, Mass. - Seeking to reduce power consumption, circuit board space and overall system cost while simultaneously increasing performance, Analog Devices has extended its nanoDAC family of digital-to-analog converters (DACs) in tiny packaging with nine new offerings that are pin-compatible from 12 to 16 bits. Developed using innovative design and packaging techniques that enable heightened accuracy and functionality in shrinking form factors, these new devices offer, for the first time, up to 16 bits of resolution in compact 2.9 mm x 2.8 mm SOT-23 (small outline transistor) packaging. This represents a 45 percent space-savings over the closest comparable performing DACs, which are housed in larger MSOPs (micro small outline packages). The two flagship products, the AD5060 and AD5660, which offer 16-bit high-precision data conversion while integrating additional circuit components on-chip, are ideal for space-constrained test and measurement equipment and industrial applications, such as open and closed-loop control systems, analog I/O cards and data acquisition boards with resulting reduction in overall system cost.

The AD5060 delivers 1 LSB maximum linearity error (INL), including its on-chip output buffer amplifier for open loop systems. This level of performance has traditionally only been available using a combination of unbuffered devices in a larger package and a separate external output buffer amplifier. For closed loop systems that benefit from higher levels of integration, the AD5660 contains the industry's highest performing integrated 10 ppm per degree C maximum on-chip reference, which enables superior accuracy, increased integration, and lower system cost.

"With these new devices, ADI now provides the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of high-performance DACs in small packages. ADI pushes the boundaries on two axes by increasing resolution while simultaneously decreasing package size," said Mike Britchfield, product line director, precision converters, Analog Devices. "This portfolio includes the AD5641--the world's smallest D/A converter, a 14-bit DAC in SC-70 packaging--introduced earlier this year."
