The MAX5204-MAX5207 serial input, voltage-output 16-bit digital-to-analog converters (DACs) provide monotonic 16-bit output over temperature without any adjustments. The MAX5204/MAX5205 operate from a +5V single power supply and use an external reference ranging from +4V to VDD, while the MAX5206/MAX5207 operate from a +3V or +3.3V single power supply and use an external reference ranging from +2V to VDD. The MAX5204-MAX5207 DAC output range is typically from 0 to VDD.

The MAX5204-MAX5207 feature a hardware reset input (active-low CLR) that when pulled low clears the output to zero code 0000 hex (MAX5205/MAX5207) or resets the output to midscale code 8000 hex (MAX5204/MAX5206). The 3-wire serial interface is compatible with SPI™/QSPI™/MICROWIRE™. All devices have a low-power shutdown mode that reduces the supply current consumption to 1µA. The MAX5204-MAX5207 are available in a space-saving 10-pin µMAX® package and are guaranteed over the extended temperature range (-40°C to +105°C). Refer to the MAX5200-MAX5203 data sheet for internal reference versions.
