The DAC ONE is a modern high precision replacement for old DAC’S very often used in “non over sampled” systems like the old TDA 1543 and TDA 1541. It is not a pin compatible replacement but a way to build up a converter system which can meet the best systems today in terms of sound quality.
The DAC ONE is build up around a fast 16 bits and very accurate R2R ladder network. To match this ladder network to real audio formats, fast glue logic is added and makes the DAC compatible with RJ16, RJ24 and I2S standards.
The ladder network is designed as an current output device, to get a voltage out an I/V converter as required. Depending on designers needs, the DAC ONE is available in both current and voltage output versions.
