The AD5301/AD5311/AD5321 are single 8-, 10- and 12-bit
buffered voltage-output DACs that operate from a single +2.5 V
to +5.5 V supply consuming 120 µA at 3 V. The on-chip output
amplifier allows rail-to-rail output swing with a slew rate of
0.7 V/µs. It uses a 2-wire (I2C compatible) serial interface that
operates at clock rates up to 400 kHz. Multiple devices can
share the same bus.
The reference for the DAC is derived from the power supply
inputs and thus gives the widest dynamic output range. These
parts incorporate a power-on-reset circuit, which ensures that
the DAC output powers-up to zero volts and remains there until
a valid write takes place. The parts contain a power-down feature
which reduces the current consumption of the device to 50 nA
at 3 V and provides software-selectable output loads while in
The low power consumption in normal operation make these
DACs ideally suited to portable battery-operated equipment.
The power consumption is 0.75 mW at 5 V, 0.36 mW at 3 V
reducing to 1 µW in all power-down modes.
