Low-power, 1-channel 16-bit DAC enables analog output without derating

May 17, 2018

Norwood, MA (BUSINESS WIRE). Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) has introduced the AD5758 digital-to-analog converter (DAC). It incorporates the company’s second-generation Dynamic Power Control (DPC) to enable high-density analog-output modules without requiring derating—the need to turn off channels due to thermal build up—resulting in lower cost, more compact designs. This single-channel current/voltage DAC with DPC is designed for channel-to-channel isolated industrial applications in factory automation, process automation, and motor control. The AD5758 is ADI’s lowest power industrial DAC.

The AD5758’s 5-mm x 5-mm size creates the smallest footprint in the industry, the company said. Its robust construction requires fewer external protection components, supporting smaller, lower-cost designs. It is engineered with advanced diagnostics that provide visibility into system performance for higher reliability and planned maintenance schedules. The AD5758 also includes output fault-protection circuits to safeguard the DAC in the event of a miswire incident.

The AD5758 includes integrated diagnostics for high system reliability. The device’s 0.05% total unadjusted error (TUE) is two times better than industry standard, the company reports.
