The LTC1450/LTC1450L are complete single supply, rail-to-rail voltage output, 12-bit digital-to-analog converters (DACs) in a 24-pin SSOP or PDIP package. They include an output buffer amplifier, reference and a double buffered parallel digital interface. The LTC1450 operates from a 4.5V to 5.5V supply. The output can be pin strapped for 4.095V or 2.048V full-scale. It has a 2.048V internal reference. The LTC1450L operates from a 2.7V to 5.5V supply. The output can be pin strapped for 2.5V or 1.22V full-scale. It has a 1.22V internal reference. The LTC1450/LTC1450L offer true stand-alone performance. In addition, the reference output, high and low reference inputs and gain setting resistor are brought to pins for maximum flexibility.
