Features and Overview

  • 8-bit resolution
  • Voltage output
  • Four quadrant multiplication
  • 2’s complement, offset binary, and sign/magnitude input data formats
  • Sample and hold for analog bus and external outputs
  • Update rates up to 125 ksps


The MDAC8 is an 8-bit, four-quadrant multiplying DAC that scales input voltage with digital codes. The MDAC8 translates digital codes to output voltages at an update rate of up to 125k samples per second. The Application Programming Interface (API) supports offset-binary, 2’s complement, and sign-andmagnitude data formats. Offset compensation minimizes conversion error.
