The DAC63204EVM is an easy-to-use platform to evaluate the functionality and performance of the DAC63204, DAC53204, and DAC43204 commercial devices.

The 12-bit DAC63204, 10-bit DAC53204, and 8-bit DAC43204 (DACx3204) are a pin-compatible family of quad-channel, buffered, voltage-output and current-output smart digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The DAC outputs are capable of both voltage and current output. The DACx3204 support Hi-Z power-down mode and Hi-Z output during power-off conditions. The DAC outputs provide a force-sense option for use as a programmable comparator and current sink. The multifunction GPIO, function generation, and nonvolatile memory (NVM) enable these smart DACs for use in applications and design reuse without the need for a processor (processor-less operation). These devices also automatically detect I2C, SPI, and PMBus interfaces, and contain an internal reference.
