Microchip Technology Introduces 12-bit DAC With Integrated EEPROM

Nonvolatile EEPROM enables MCP4725 DAC settings to be recalled at power up, meaning a microcontroller is not required if the DAC output does not need to change. This provides flexibility for system designers and helps to reduce cost, power consumption and design footprint. The highly-accurate DAC has low power consumption of just 0.06 microamperes in shutdown, which helps extend battery life. Additionally, its onboard precision output amplifier enables a rail-to-rail analog output, so the DAC output fully utilizes the entire voltage range.

(November 14, 2007) EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands — Dr. Fred Roozeboom, Ph.D., research fellow at NXP Semiconductors Research and a professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology, has agreed to join the EMC3D consortium and provide technical advice and guidance in support of the EMC3D effort to quickly bring the technology of through-silicon via (TSV) chip stacking to market.
