nation of small size and low ESR. Ceramic capacitors are
attractive due to their small size but generally have ESR val-
ues that are too low for use with the LP2980. Aluminum
electrolytic capacitors are typically not a good choice due to
their large size and high ESR values at low temperatures.
2.3 BIPOLAR OPERATION
The DAC128S085 is designed for single supply operation and
thus has a unipolar output. However, a bipolar output may be
achieved with the circuit in Figure 12. This circuit will provide
an output voltage range of ±5 Volts. A rail-to-rail amplifier
should be used if the amplifier supplies are limited to ±5V.

The output voltage of this circuit for any code is found to be

2.4 VARIABLE CURRENT SOURCE OUTPUT
The DAC128S085 is a voltage output DAC but can be easily
converted to a current output with the addition of an opamp.
In Figure 13, one of the channels of the DAC128S085 is con-
verted to a variable current source capable of sourcing up to
40mA.

2.5.1 Industrial Application
Figure 14 shows the DAC128S085 controlling several differ-
ent circuits in an industrial setting. Channel A is shown pro-
viding the reference voltage to the ADC121S625, one of

x R2 / R1)
A
Converters (ADCs). The reference for the ADC121S625 may
= 5V and
be set to any voltage from 0.2V to 5.5V, providing the widest
A
dynamic range possible. Typically, the ADC121S625 will be
monitoring a sensor and would benefit from the ADC's refer-
ence voltage being adjustable. Channel B is providing the
drive or supply voltage for a sensor. By having the sensor
supply voltage adjustable, the output of the sensor can be
optimized to the input level of the ADC monitoring it. Channel
C is defined to adjust the offset or gain of an amplifier stage
Typ I
in the system. Channel D is configured with an opamp to pro-

of the eight channels of the DAC128S085 to a current output

eliminates the need for a separate current output DAC to be

provides a bipolar output swing for devices requiring control

Channel H is reserved for providing voltage control or acting
as a voltage setpoint.
