Product Overview

The DAC8218EVM is an evaluation module for DAC8218, a low power, octal, 14bit digital to analog converter (DAC). It can also evaluates DAC7718 and DAC8718 digital to analog converters. The evaluation module provides a quick and easy way to evaluate the functionality and performance of this high resolution serial input digital to analog converter (DAC). The evaluation module is designed to work by default for a bipolar output range, but it can be configured for a unipolar output range by properly configuring two jumpers. The evaluation module provides the serial interface header to easily attach to any host microprocessor or DSP base system. Installed precision reference voltages of 5VDC and 2.5VDC are selectable using on board jumpers. REF5050 (5.0VDC source) and REF5025 (2.5VDC) are pin compatible with the REF50xx family allowing a wide variety of reference values.
  • Bipolar and unipolar mode of operation is supported
  • Contains all support circuitry needed for the DACxx18 family
  • Serial interface header to easily attach to DSP base communication systems
  • Voltage reference options On board 5V, On board 2.5V or external
  • On board jumpers to control DAC control pins
  • Compatible with the modular EVM system
  • Wide selection of digital and I/O voltages
  • DAC8218EVM can be connected directly to a DSP or microcontroller interface board
It is important to operate this EVM within the input voltage range of –16.5V to 21V and the output voltage range of –15V to 15V. Exceeding the specified input range may cause damage to the EVM.
