ADI Webinar: Five Things You Don’t Know about DACs

Analog Devices is offering a webinar about digital to analog converts. The online seminar will discuss the secret to selecting the best DAC product for applications. The title of the webcast is: Five Things You Don’t Know About D/A Converters. The webinar will take place next Wednesday (December 14, 2011) at 12:00 pm EST. The ADI event is ideal for engineers who interact with or use converters for industrial, communication, medical, automotive or general-purpose applications.

The Five Things You Don’t Know About D/A Converters webinar will focus on how to select the best D/A converters. The webcast will reveal the technical details behind five of the key specification areas of precision digital to analog converters (DAC): resolution and accuracy, total unadjusted error, output noise, output timing and system level application considerations. These five specification areas are featured on most D/A converter datasheets. However, their relevance in real world applications is often misunderstood. Participants of this online seminar will gain a deeper understanding of D/A converters and how their specifications can impact system level performance.

The webinar will be presented by Ken Kavanagh, who is an application engineer in the Precision Digital to Analog Converter product line at Analog Devices in Limerick, Ireland. Kavanagh has worked in the field of data converters since joining ADI in 1993. He received a B.E. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland.
