Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. introduced a data converter that integrates all the external circuitry to make a high-precision voltage source for industrial test and measurement, factory automation, and process control. The new MAX5318 integrates an output and reference buffer amplifier, essential functions that consume as many as three extra, external components in competitive designs, according to the company. Features include high accuracy (+/- 2LSB) over the -40°C to +105°C temp range; a negative supply option allows full INL and DNL performance down to 0V; and fast settling time (3 µs).
