DATEL, 14-bit 125MHz Digital-to-Analog Converter

The DAC-1412 is a 14-bit D/A converter that offers up to 125MHz conversion rate from a segmented current source topology that is built on an advanced CMOS process and delivers a low glitch energy output from 2mA to 20mA. Housed in a small 28-pin plastic TSSOP package, it is the best choice for all military, airborne, and aerospace applications that can utilize a low cost Commercial-Off-the Shelf (COTS) component such as the DAC-1412.

DATEL, Inc. has announced the introduction of the DAC-1412 series, a new line of Digital-to-Analog converters that offer 14-bit resolution and are housed in 28-pin plastic TSSOP package. It is offered in two enhanced Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) grades, DAC-1412SE (-40 to +105°C) and DAC-1412SM (-55 to +125°C).

Each unit features no missing codes, ±1.5 LSB of Differential Non-Linearity, ±2.0 of Integral Non-Linearity and is 100 percent tested for performance across temperature ranges: -40 to +105°C; -55 to +125°C. The DAC-1412 requires only one supply voltage for operation; ranging from +2.7 to 5.25 Volts, and consumes only 30mA of supply current. It has a "sleep mode" feature that reduces power consumption only 20µA.

The DAC-1412 contains a precision internal 1.2V temperature-compensated bandgap voltage reference, or it can be used with an external reference option. It features an edge-triggered CMOS input latches and provides excellent dynamic performance with -75dB of Total Harmonic Distortion making it ideal for applications such as signal reconstruction, high-resolution imaging, cellular base stations, and medical/test instruments

DATEL offers these converters fully tested over temperature with ATE results recorded and stored for the operating temperatures of -40C to +105°C (DAC-1412SE) or -55 to + 125°C (DAC-1412SM). Burn-in, lot and ATE traceability are also offered

Samples for both DAC-1412SE and DAC-1412SM are available upon request.

For the more demanding and ruggedized application, DATEL also offers this family of products as fully screened high reliability DAC-1412-QL and DAC-1412/883 models. These two MIL-STD models are offered in a hermetically-sealed ceramic package to protect the IC from the effects of moisture/outgassing and to isolate the IC from the stresses that may occur on the printed circuit. Please contact DATEL for more information on these models.

In addition to our standard product offerings, DATEL is a leader in providing System-in-a-Package Solutions (SIP) for all special applications and Pin-to-Pin replacements for any existing or obsolete component.
