Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the AD9154 Quad Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) ADS7-V1EBZ Evaluation Boards from Analog Devices. The AD9154 is a four-input 16-bit DAC with a high dynamic range and a fast sampling rate of 2.4 Giga-samples per second (Gsps).
The Analog Devices AD9154 DAC Evaluation Boards are used to evaluate the Analog Devices AD9154 Quad 16-bit DAC. This high-speed, high dynamic range quad DAC supports input data rates up to 1Gsps and permits multicarrier signal generation up to the desired Nyquist frequency. This Analog Devices high speed data converter specifically targets wideband communications systems, automated test equipment, and high speed instrumentation.
A high-performance, low-noise phase lock loop (PLL) is on-chip to reduce component count. This DAC is designed for low-power applications and draws 2.1W when converting at 1.5Gsps. An advanced low spurious and distortion design provides high-quality generation of wideband signals, from the baseband up to high frequencies.
This DAC is designed to easily connect with the Analog Devices’ ADRF670x analog quadrature modulators (AQMs). Interfacing to these DACs is provided by an industry standard SPI interface. This interface allows configuration of many of the device options, including internal reset, configuring the internal FIFO, selecting power down modes, setting interrupts, configuring the internal reference clock, configuring the internal PLL, and reading the internal device temperature.
The AD9154 ADS7-V1EBZ Evaluation Board interfaces to an Analog Devices high speed data capture board, also available from Mouser Electronics.
