I'm trying to use a MAX541 DAC (datasheet here) with a Tiva LaunchPad (TM4C123G). I've gotten this to work with other DACs, the problem is that that those DACs required 3.3 volts and the MAX541 requires 5 volts.
The Tiva LaunchPad outputs 3.3V. I've purchased this RECOM ROE-3.305S DC/DC Converter which is supposed to convert 3.3V to 5V. However, when using it with the 3.3V input, it's outputting 6.35 volts and not the 5 volts that I need.
The DC/DC converter simply has four pins that plug into a breadboard: -Vin, +Vin, -Vout, +Vout. I simply plug the ground of the Tiva LaunchPad to the -Vin. The 3.3V power from the Tiva LaunchPad to the +Vin. Still I get 6.35V and not 5volts. Am I doing something wrong? Anyone?
