AN60305 - Using PSoC® 3 and PSoC 5LP IDACs to Build a Better VDAC

Last Updated:

This application note describes how to configure the PSoC® 3 and PSoC 5LP IDACs as a flexible analog source. It presents different approaches for using the IDACs in applications, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the topologies presented. This application note will: help you to understand compliance voltage and why it is important; explain how to generate an “any range” or “any ground” VDAC; describe an implementation for a multiplying VDAC; give details on how to build a rail-to-rail low-output impedance 9-bit VDAC from a single IDAC, an opamp, and a resistor; and provide information on how to build a current scaling circuit with an opamp and two resistors.

Dear valued customer,

Thank you for choosing our products. They come with all the know-how and passion that our engineers have put into it. As you probably already know, Cypress is now Infineon. This is a major step for our company, but also for the good of you. 

Reliability and business continuity are of utmost importance for us. Hence, we remain fully committed to honoring existing customer and distributor relationships. This includes offering the legacy Cypress product portfolio. We thank you very much for your trusting support.
