The AD5303/AD5313/AD5323 are dual 8-, 10- and 12-bit
buffered voltage output DACs in a 16-lead TSSOP package that
operate from a single +2.5 V to +5.5 V supply consuming 230 µA
at 3 V. Their on-chip output amplifiers allow the outputs to
swing rail-to-rail with a slew rate of 0.7 V/µs. The AD5303/
AD5313/AD5323 utilize a versatile 3-wire serial interface that
operates at clock rates up to 30 MHz and is compatible with
standard SPI™, QSPI, MICROWIRE™ and DSP interface
The references for the two DACs are derived from two reference
pins (one per DAC). These reference inputs may be configured
as buffered or unbuffered inputs. The parts incorporate a power-
on-reset circuit that ensures that the DAC outputs power-up to
0 V and remain there until a valid write to the device takes place.
There is also an asynchronous active low CLR pin that clears
both DACs to 0 V. The outputs of both DACs may be updated
simultaneously using the asynchronous LDAC input. The
parts contain a power-down feature that reduces the current
consumption of the devices to 200 nA at 5 V (50 nA at 3 V) and
provides software-selectable output loads while in power-down
mode. The parts may also be used in daisy-chaining applications
using the SDO pin.
The low power consumption of these parts in normal operation
make them ideally suited to portable battery operated equip-
ment. The power consumption is 1.5 mW at 5 V, 0.7 mW at
3 V, reducing to 1 µW in power-down mode.
