The AD5694/AD5696, members of the nanoDAC+™ family are low power, quad, 12/16-bit buffered voltage output DACs. The devices include a gain select pin giving a full-scale output of 0V to VREF (gain = 1) or 0V to 2VREF (gain = 2).
The AD5694R/AD5695R/AD5696R nanoDAC+TM are quad, 12/14/16-bit, rail-to-rail, voltage output DACs. The devices include a 2.5V, 2ppm/˚C internal reference (enabled by default) and a gain select pin giving a full-scale output of 2.5V (gain=1) or 5V (gain=2).
These devices operate from a single 2.7 V to 5.5 V supply, are guaranteed monotonic by design and exhibit less than 0.1% FSR gain error and 1.5mV offset error performance. The devices are available in a 3mm X 3mm LFCSP and a TSSOP package.
The AD5694/AD5696/AD5694R/AD5695R/AD5696R also incorporate a power-on reset circuit and a RSTSEL pin that ensures that the DAC outputs power up to zero scale or midscale and remain at that level until a valid write takes place. Each part contains a per-channel power-down feature that reduces the current consumption of the device to 4 µA at 3 V while in power-down mode. The devices employ an I2C interface that operates at clock rates up to 400 kHz, and all devices contain a VLOGIC pin intended for 1.8 V/3 V/5 V logic.
The goal of this project (Microcontroller No-OS) is to be able to provide reference projects for lower end processors, which can't run Linux, or aren't running a specific operating system, to help those customers using microcontrollers with ADI parts. Here you can find a generic driver which can be used as a base for any microcontroller platform and also specific drivers for Renesas platforms.
The driver contains two parts:
The Communication Driver has a standard interface, so the AD5696R driver can be used exactly as it is provided.
There are three functions which are called by the AD5696R driver:
I2C driver architecture
The following functions are implemented in this version of AD5696R driver:
|unsigned char AD569X_Init(unsigned char ad569x)
|Initializes the device.
|void AD569X_Reset(unsigned char resetOutput)
|Resets the device(clears the outputs to either zero scale or midscale).
|void AD569X_PowerMode(unsigned char channel, unsigned char pwrMode)
|Puts the device in a specific power mode.
|void AD569X_InternalVoltageReference(unsigned char vRefMode)
|Select internal or external voltage reference.
|void AD569X_SetInputRegister(unsigned long registerValue)
|Writes a 24-bit data-word to the Input Register of the device.
|void AD569X_WriteFunction(unsigned char writeCommand, unsigned char channel, unsigned short data)
|Write data to the Input Register or to DAC Register of a channel.
|unsigned short AD569X_ReadBack(unsigned char dacChannelAddr)
|Reads back the binary value written to one of the channels.
|float AD569X_SetVoltage(unsigned char channel, float outputVoltage, float vRef)
|Selects the output voltage of the selected channel.
This section contains a description of the steps required to run the AD5696R demonstration project on a Renesas RL78G13 platform.
An EVAL-AD5696RSDZ has to be interfaced with the Renesas Demonstration Kit (RDK) for RL78G13:
EVAL-AD5696RSDZ Pin SCL → YRDKRL78G13 J9 connector Pin 1 EVAL-AD5696RSDZ Pin SDA → YRDKRL78G13 J9 connector Pin 3 EVAL-AD5696RSDZ Pin LDAC → YRDKRL78G13 J11 connector Pin 9 EVAL-AD5696RSDZ Pin RESET → YRDKRL78G13 J11 connector Pin 10 EVAL-AD5696RSDZ Pin GND → YRDKRL78G13 J11 connector Pin 11
The reference project:
This section presents the steps for developing a software application that will run on the Renesas Demo Kit for RL78G13 for controlling and monitoring the operation of the ADI part.
