Analog Devices unveils low-power, single-channel 16-Bit DAC

Analog Devices (ADI) HAS introduced the AD5758 digital-to-analogue converter (DAC).

The device incorporates the company’s second-generation Dynamic Power Control (DPC) to enable high density AOUT modules without requiring de-rating – 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 5mm x 5mm size creates a device with one of the smallest footprints in the industry. Robustly constructed it requires fewer external protection components, supporting smaller, lower-cost designs.

It has been engineered with advanced diagnostics, that provide visibility to system performance for higher reliability and planned maintenance schedules, and includes output fault protection circuits to safeguard the DAC in the event of a miswire incident.
