16-bit DAC

LTC1592

Introduction

Precision 16-bit analog outputs with software-configurable output ranges are often needed in industrial process control equipment, analytical and scientific instruments and automatic test equipment. In the past, designing a universal output module was a daunting task and the cost and PCB real estate associated with this function were problematic, if not prohibitive. Figure 362.1 shows an example of the circuitry formerly required to produce a programmable 16-bit DAC with a variety of output ranges. However, ...
