Overview:
This webcast reveals the secrets behind selecting the best DAC product for your application. Revealed within are the technical details behind five of the key specification areas of Precision Digital to Analog Converters (DAC). Topics reviewed are Resolution and Accuracy, Total Unadjusted Error, Output Noise, Output Timing and finally System Level Application considerations. These five areas are featured on most DAC Datasheets but often their relevance in real world applications is misunderstood. Participants will emerge from this webcast with a deeper understanding of DACs and how their specifications can impact system level performance.

Who should attend?
Engineers who interact with or use Converters in Industrial, Communication, Medical, Automotive or General Purpose applications.

Do TI test 100% of their output? Over time we see out-of-spec dacs in production. Using 5k per year we see too many failures. However they are cheap so ...

Test coverage is never 100%. If you are a regular customer you should work with TI and report the failures you see and return the failing parts for failure analysis. This way the test coverage will improve and you as a customer will over time see a lower failure rate.

Suppliers do say that. Whether it helps is another topic.
