12-Bit Micro Power Digital-to-Analog Converter with Rail-
to-Rail Output
General Description
The DAC121S101 is a full-featured, general purpose 12-bit
voltage-output digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that can op-
erate from a single +2.7 V to 5.5 V supply and consumes just
177 µA of current at 3.6 V. The on-chip output amplifier allows
rail-to-rail output swing and the three wire serial interface op-
erates at clock rates up to 20 MHz over the specified supply
voltage range and is compatible with standard SPI ™ , QSPI,
MICROWIRE and DSP interfaces.
The supply voltage for the DAC121S101 serves as its voltage
reference, providing the widest possible output dynamic
range. A power-on reset circuit ensures that the DAC output
powers up to zero volts and remains there until there is a valid
write to the device. A power-down feature reduces power
consumption to less than a microWatt.
The low power consumption and small packages of the
DAC121S101 make it an excellent choice for use in battery
operated equipment.
The DAC121S101 operates over the extended temperature
range of -55°C to +125°C.
