DEMO MANUAL DC1792A
LTC2756
Serial 18-Bit SoftSpan IOUT DAC
Description
Demonstration circuit 1792A features the LTC2756 18-bit
SoftSpan™, IOUT DAC. The digital interface is a simple,
4-wire Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) interface, augmented with separate CLEAR and LDAC pins that reset
the output to zero and load the DAC code, respectively.
This device features six output ranges: 0V to 5V, 0V to
10V, ±5V, ±10V, ±2.5V, and –2.5V to 7.5V. These ranges
are programmable through the SPI interface or through
Board Photo
separate span control pins if SoftSpan operation is not
needed. Voltage input offset and gain adjustment pins
facilitate trimming of residual DC errors without impacting
the excellent temperature stability of this device.

Quick Start Procedure
Connect a low noise ±15V power supply to the AMPV+
and AMPV– turret posts at the left side of the DC1792A
board. Connect J1 to a DC590 USB serial controller using the supplied 14-conductor ribbon cable. Connect
DC590 to a host PC with a standard USB A/B cable.
Run the evaluation software supplied with the DC590,
or download it from www.linear.com/software. The correct control panel will be loaded automatically, shown in
Figure 2. The software automatically sets the LTC2756
outputs according to the entries in the control panel. A
square wave option is available to test settling time. MSPAN
jumper should be set to 0 if software span control is desired.
Setting MSPAN high (1) causes the S2, S1, S0 pins to set
the span according to the table printed on the board, and
the corresponding span should be selected in software to
ensure that the calculated DAC code is correct.

quick start procedure
Additional software documentation may be available from
the Help menu item, as features may be added periodically.
VCC: Select source for 5V VCC supply. Set to 5V for supply by onboard LTC6655 reference (recommended). Set
to REG to be supplied by regulated supply from DC590
Controller and remove the jumper to supply externally.
VREF: Select source for reference. Set to 5V to use onboard
LTC6655 reference or select EXT to drive externally through
the VREF jumper.
CLR: Asynchronous Clear Input. Tie to 0 to set all DAC
outputs to 0V.
LDAC: Asynchronous DAC Load Input. Tie to 0 to update
all DACS if _CS is high.
RFLAG: Reset Flag Output. Remove jumper and probe
middle pin for RFLAG status.

VOUT: DAC Voltage Output.
MSPAN: Manual Span Control Pin. MSPAN is used to
configure the LTC2756 for operation in a single, fixed
output range. If MSPAN is 1 (high) it will be configured
for single span use. If MSPAN is low it will be set through
the QuikEval™ Software. Default position is 0 (low).
S0, S1, S2: Used to set the fixed output range if MSPAN
is 1 (high).

GEADJ: Gain Adjust Pin. If no adjustments are required,
select GND. Selecting EXT. connects the pin to the turret
allowing external adjustment to null gain error or compensate for reference errors.
VOSADJ: Offset Adjustment Selection for DAC. If no
offset adjustment is required, select GND. Selecting EXT
connects the offset pin to the turret allowing external
adjustment of offset.
VREF: DAC Reference Voltage. If the onboard LTC6655
reference is selected, the voltage may be measured at these
points. If a remote reference is selected, then an external
reference must be applied to these points.
VOSADJ: DAC offset adjust input, use only if VOSA jumper
set to EXT. Nominal input range is ±5V, which will provide
±2048LSB of offset adjustment.
GEADJ: Gain Adjust Pin. This voltage control pin can be
used to null gain error or to compensate for reference
errors. The gain error change expressed in LSB is the
same for any output range. Nominal range is ±5V, which
will provide ±2048LSB of gain adjustment.
Power and Ground Connections
Analog Power: AMPV+, AMPV–, and GND turret posts
are the analog supplies for the onboard DAC amplifiers.
These should be connected to a well regulated, low noise
±15V power supply.
VCC: Connection to VCC. See schematic and description
for VCC jumper.
Grounding: Separate power and signal grounds are provided. Signal GND is the turret closest to VOUT, use this
for measurement ground and output return. Power GND
is between AMPV+ and AMPV– turrets.
