Maxim Integrated MAX5214 (14-bit) and MAX5216 (16-bit) buffered single digital-to-analog converters (DACs) provide power consumption of less than 80µA I,sub>Q</sub>, allowing these DACs to prolong battery life in portable applications. MAX5214 and MAX5216 DACs feature best-in-class accuracy, a small package size, and low current consumption, making these Maxim Integrated devices equally attractive in 2-wire sensors where low current levels must be measured and power efficiency is important. The MAX5214 and MAX5216 provide ±0.25 LSB and ±1 LSB of integral nonlinearity (INL), respectively, over their wide resolution spectrum. They are ideal for high-performance systems executing repetitive tasks in numerous counts that demand the same high precision and accuracy each time. These Maxim Integrated DACs integrate an internal buffer that reduces the number of external components and total space required on the PCB. Buffer integration also simplifies design in.
