Precision DAC for high-performance computing is available now

01-12-2022 | Mouser Electronics | Power

Mouser now stocks the DAC63202 precision DAC from Texas Instruments. Part of the family of pin-compatible DACs, the 12-bit DAC63202 (as well as the 10-bit DAC53202, available to order) is a dual-channel, buffered, voltage-output and current-output smart device that provides an exceptional feature set with low power consumption and a compact footprint.

The DAC provides buffered programmable voltage or current outputs and a programmable comparator mode for all channels. The device supports Hi-Z power-down mode and Hi-Z output through power-off conditions, and the DAC outputs supply a force-sense option for usage as a programmable comparator and current sink. The device is provided with high-impedance and resistive pulldown power-down modes and offers a high-impedance output when VDD is powered off.

For communications to the host application, the device integrates a 50MHz, SPI-compatible interface and can automatically detect I²C, PMBus, and SPI interfaces. Other noteworthy features of the DACx3202 family include user-programmable nonvolatile memory, configurable multi-function GPIOs, and predefined waveform generation (sine, cosine, triangular, and sawtooth). Together, these features allow the device to function in 'processor-less' applications and design reuse.

For designers pursuing voltage margining and scaling, DC set-point (for biasing and calibration) and waveform generation capabilities, the devices are an ideal fit for various applications, including rack servers, optical modules, inter-DC interconnects (metro), high-performance computing or standard notebook PCs.

The company also provides the DAC63204EVM evaluation module for evaluation and development, now available to order.
