The DAC8871 is a single, 16-bit, serial-input, high voltage-output digital-to-analog (DAC) converter operating from a dual ± 18 V power supply. This converter provides excellent linearity (1 LSB INL), low glitch, low noise fast settling over its specified temperature range of -40°C to +105°C. A precision voltage reference is provided on the EVM to allow uni-polar operation at +10 Volts. This EVM is compatible with Texas Instruments 5-6K, HPA-MCU Interface Boards. Together with the use of TI's C5000 and C6000 DSP Starter Kits (DSK), the building of custom cables is alleviated.
