1ppm Settling Time Measurement for a Monolithic 18-Bit DAC Download 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, Trinamic Motion Control is offering you to win one of four TMCM-1043 development kits for its highly integrated, NEMA 17-compatible TMCM-1043 stepDancer stepper motor module.

Offering designers an easy-to-use PC-based GUI that allows one-click modification of motor drive current, micro-stepping and other key parameters, the intuitive kits are custom designed and developed for direct mounting on a NEMA 17 motor. Pre-programmed and pre-configured with all operating parameters to support standard 1.5A (peak) motors, the TMCM-1043 board uses Trinamic´s single-axis TMC2660 stepper motor driver IC, which integrates a motor pre-driver and power MOSFETs.
