The ADT7516/ADT7517/ADT7518 combines a 10-bit temperature-to-digital converter, a 10-bit 4-channel ADC, and a quad 12-/10-/8-bit DAC, respectively, in a 16-lead QSOP package. This includes a band gap temperature sensor and a 10-bit ADC to monitor and digitize the temperature reading to
a resolution of 0.25C. The ADT7516/ADT7517/ADT7518 operates from a single 2.7 V to 5.5 V supply. The input voltage range on the ADC channels is 0 V to 2.25 V and the input bandwidth is dc. The reference for the ADC channels is derived internally. The output voltage of the DAC ranges from 0 V to
VDD, with an output voltage settling time of 7 ms typical. The ADT7516/ADT7517/ADT7518 provides two serial interface options: a 4-wire serial interface that is compatible with SPI, QSPI, MICROWIRE, and DSP interface standards; and a 2-wire SMBus/I2C interface. It features a standby mode that is controlled via the serial interface. The reference for the four DACs is derived either internally or from a reference pin. The outputs of all DACs may be updated simultaneously using the software LDAC function or the external LDAC pin. The ADT7516/ADT7517/ADT7518 incorporates a power-on reset circuit, which ensures that the DAC output powers up to 0 V and remains there until a valid write takes place.The ADT7516/ADT7517/ADT7518's wide supply voltage range, low supply current, and SPI/I2C compatible interface make it ideal for a variety of applications, including personal computers, office equipment, and domestic appliances.
