The DAC8580 is a 16-bit, high-speed, low-noise, voltage-output DAC designed for waveform generation applications. It operates from dual ±5-V power supplies and requires only a single external reference. The DAC8580 is capable of generating output signal frequencies up to 1 MHz. The DAC8580 significantly relaxes, or removes, the need for external de-glitchers, analog filters and high-swing output buffers. It incorporates a programmable digital interpolation filter capable of oversampling the input word rate by 2, 4, 8, or 16. The digital filter can be bypassed on-the-fly, or can be permanently turned off. The fast 30-MHz serial interface is compatible with right-justified digital audio format. The DAC8580 is specified from -40°C to 85°C.
