The AD5749 is a single channel, low cost, precision, current output
driver with hardware or software programmable output ranges.
The software ranges are configured via an SPI-/MICROWIRE™-
compatible serial interface. The AD5749 targets applications in
PLC and industrial process control. The analog input to the
AD5749 is provided from a low voltage, single-supply digital-to-
analog converter (DAC) and is internally conditioned to provide
the desired output current/voltage range.
The output current range is programmable across two current
ranges: 0 mA to 24 mA, or 4 mA to 20 mA. Current output is
open-circuit protected and can drive inductive loads of 0.1 H.
The device is specified to operate with a power supply range
from 10.8 V to 55 V. Output loop compliance is 0 V to AVDD −
The flexible serial interface is SPI and MICROWIRE compatible
and can be operated in 3-wire mode to minimize the digital
isolation required in isolated applications. The interface also
features an optional PEC error checking feature using CRC-8

error checking, useful in industrial environments where data
communication corruption can occur.
The device also includes a power-on reset function ensuring
that the device powers up in a known state and an asynchron-
ous CLEAR pin that sets the outputs to the low end of the
selected current range.
An HW SELECT pin is used to configure the part for hardware
or software mode on power-up.
