DACs Break Size Barriers

Dubbed the market's smallest, the first members of the nanoDAC family of d/a converters will find gainful employment in a range of communications, consumer, and handheld designs including digital cameras, projectors, and PDAs. Available in an SC-70 package, the AD5641 reportedly consumes 70% less board area and 80% less power than comparable devices. Features include 14-bit resolution, guaranteed monotonic behavior, and a maximum power consumption of 100 mA at 5V. For applications not requiring the performance of the AD5641, other members of the family include the 12-bit AD5621, 10-bit AD5611, and the 8-bit AD5601. All four members are available in the same six-lead SC-70 package with prices ranging from $0.95 to $4.75 each/1,000. ANALOG DEVICES INC., Norwood, MA. (800) 262-5643.
