The DAC108S085 is a full-featured, general purpose
OCTAL 10-bit voltage-output digital-to-analog
converter (DAC) that can operate from a single +2.7V
to +5.5V supply and consumes 1.95 mW at 3V and
4.85 mW at 5V. The DAC108S085 is packaged in a
16-lead WQFN package and a 16-lead TSSOP
package. The WQFN package makes the
DAC108S085 the smallest OCTAL DAC in its class.
The on-chip output amplifiers allow rail-to-rail output
swing and the three wire serial interface operates at
clock rates up to 40 MHz over the entire supply
voltage range. Competitive devices are limited to 25
MHz clock rates at supply voltages in the 2.7V to
3.6V range. The serial interface is compatible with
standard SPI™, QSPI, MICROWIRE and DSP
interfaces. The DAC108S085 also offers daisy chain
operation where an unlimited number of
DAC108S085s can be updated simultaneously using
a single serial interface.
There are two references for the DAC108S085. One
reference input serves channels A through D while
the other reference serves channels E through H.
Each reference can be set independently between
0.5V and VA, providing the widest possible output
dynamic range. The DAC108S085 has a 16-bit input
shift register that controls the mode of operation, the
power-down condition, and the DAC channels'
register/output value. All eight DAC outputs can be
updated simultaneously or individually.
A power-on reset circuit ensures that the DAC
outputs power up to zero volts and remain there until
there is a valid write to the device. The power-down
feature of the DAC108S085 allows each DAC to be
independently powered with three different
termination options. With all the DAC channels
powered down, power consumption reduces to less
than 0.3 µW at 3V and less than 1 µW at 5V. The low
power consumption and small packages of the
DAC108S085 make it an excellent choice for use in
battery operated equipment.
