The 16-bit DAC80516 is a low-power, 16-channel, buffered voltage-output digital-to-analog converter (DAC). The DAC80516 includes a 2.5V, 5ppm/°C internal reference, eliminating the need for an external precision reference in most applications. A user selectable gain configuration can be used to provide full-scale output voltages of 2.5V or 5V. The DAC80516 operates from a single power supply.

Communication to the DAC80516 is performed through an SPI-supported serial interface and operates at clock rates of up to 50MHz. The VIO pin enables serial interface operation from 1.7V to 5.5V. The DAC80516 flexible interface enables operation with a wide range of industry-standard microprocessors and microcontrollers.

The DAC80516 is characterized for operation over the temperature range of –40°C to +125°C and available in a small WQFN package.
