Part Number: DAC8551
Dear TI support team,
Comparing Figure 32 the curve zero voltage sink capability of the DAC8551 datasheet with DACs having a compareable output stage (see DAC80501 for example) , the valures presented in DAC8551 are factor 1000 or more better. Additionally if you have a close look on the curve for max. output voltage (2.7V - 10mV ) and you look on the y-axis, you have 2,7mV (instead of something in the range of 2.7V). Is there a typo? From my understanding "V" instead of "mV" as y-axis would give a more realistic picture.
Can you please support here?
PS: Same sitaution on DAC8551-Q1 for example
I agree. Being that the notation in Figure 32 for the DAC8551 indicates "DAC Loaded with FFFFh" at just above 2.5 on the Y-axis this must be in volts.
I will see about getting the datasheet owner to update the document.

You are correct. The y-axis is has a typo. The units should be volts. Given those units, the plot is much more reasonable.
Thanks for pointing this out!

Hi Kevin, hi Paul,
thanks for your reply! Only to get closer to the full picture: I found this typo as well for the Figure 7. (Supply with 5V) and as i said, DAC8551-Q seems to have the same typo. So it may be the case, that this typo has a systematic reason.
