1ppm Settling Time Measurement for a Monolithic 18-Bit DAC
January 02, 2012 // Jim Williams, Linear Technology // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 2Mo
Performance requirements for instrumentation, function generation, inertial navigation systems, trimming, calibrators, ATE, medical apparatus and other precision applications are beginning to eclipse capabilities of 16-bit data converters. More specifi cally, 16-bit digital-to-analog converters (DACs) have been unable to provide required resolution in an increasing number of ultra-precision applications. New componentshave made 18-bit DACs a practical design alternative1. These ICs provide 18-bit performance at reasonable cost compared to previous modular and hybrid technologies. The monolithic DACs DC and AC specifi cations approach or equal previous converters at significantly lower cost.

This month, Oscium is giving away three of its iMSO-204L dual analogue iOS oscilloscopes, worth USD400 each. Designed with native Lightning compatibility, the iMSO-204L transforms the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into an ultra-portable, two-channel oscilloscope.
Since Apple changed its connector, Oscium has been working to bring native compatibility to its customers. The third generation of handheld engineering tools from Oscium, the iMSO-204L is the solution to the connector change, featuring two analogue and four digital channels, capable of 50 MSPS at a 5MHz bandwidth, and with a resolution varying from 200ns/div to 10s/div.MORE INFO AND LAST MONTH' WINNERS...
