NORWOOD, Mass.--(Business Wire)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today the AD5689R D/A converter.
This 16-bit dual nanoDAC+ continues the series of ADIs nanoDAC® products
offering high performance in smaller packages. With relative accuracy of ±2-LSB
INL, 2-ppm/°C 2.5-V reference, and space saving packages, this combination
allows analog designers to address a wider range of applications without having
to trade off performance for footprint. The series provides a straightforward
pin compatible 10-bit to 16-bit upgrade/downgrade path for applications in a
wide range of markets including communications infrastructure, industrial
process control, healthcare and instrumentation.

The AD5689R also includes useful pin functions such as VLOGIC facilitating
1.8-V, 3-V and 5-V logic levels and a GAIN pin enabling the output range to be
doubled. The series has both SPI and I2C interface options. 

AD5689R 16-bit nanoDAC+ Key Features:

* ±2 LSB-INL max - suits open loop applications 
* 2-ppm/°C 2.5-V reference - saves board space and removes calibration
requirements over temperature 
* Total Unadjusted Error 2-mV - eliminates need for initial
* 3-mm × 3-mm 16-lead LFCSP and 16-lead TSSOP - for shrinking board/module sizes

* 4-KV HBM ESD rating - provides system robustness
