The AD5753 uses a versatile, 4-wire, serial peripheral interface (SPI) that operates at clock rates of up to 50MHz. This interface is compatible with standard SPI, QSPI™, MICROWIRE™, digital signal processor (DSP), and microcontroller interface standards. The interface features an optional SPI cyclic redundancy check (CRC) and a watchdog timer (WDT). The AD5753 offers improved diagnostic features from earlier versions of similar DACs, such as output current monitoring and an integrated, 12-bit diagnostic analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The inclusion of a line protector on the VIOUT, +VSENSE, and −VSENSE pins provides additional robustness.
