The AD5641, a member of the nanoDAC family, is a single,
14-bit, buffered, voltage out DAC that operates from a single
2.7 V to 5.5 V supply, consuming <100 µA at 5 V. The part
comes in a tiny SC70 package. Its on-chip precision output
amplifier allows rail-to-rail output swing to be achieved. The
AD5641 utilizes a versatile 3-wire serial interface that operates
at clock rates up to 30 MHz and is compatible with SPI®, QSPI™,
MICROWIRE™, and DSP interface standards. The reference for
AD5641 is derived from the power supply inputs and, therefore,
gives the widest dynamic output range. The part incorporates a
power-on reset circuit, which ensures that the DAC output
powers up to 0 V and remains there until a valid write to the
device takes place.
The AD5641 contains a power-down feature that reduces
current consumption to <100 nA at 3 V, and provides software-
selectable output loads while in power-down mode. The part is
put into power-down mode over the serial interface. The low
power consumption of the part in normal operation makes it
ideally suited to portable battery-operated equipment. The
combination of small package and low power makes this
nanoDAC device ideal for level-setting requirements such as
generating bias or control voltages in space-constrained and
