The DAC8562EVM is designed for the prototyping and evaluation of the DAC7562, DAC8162, DAC8562, DAC7563, DAC8163, or DAC8563 digital to analog converter. These 12/14/16-bit, reset to zero scale or midscale, string DACs are featured in a very small 10-pin QFN package and include an internal reference with very low temperature drift characteristics. The EVM gives access to every pin of the converter which enables the DACs serial interface header to easily attach to any host microprocessor or TI DSP base system. The DAC includes a precise 2.5V internal reference voltage and the evaluation board includes an external +2.5V. The two reference options are selectable using onboard jumpers and setting the DAC itself appropriately. The EVM also has the ability to highlight using the DAC in bipolar applications by installing a few resistors and an op amp.
