T2M DAC 12bit 640Msps Current Steering DAC IP Core

12bit 640Msps Current Steering DAC IP Core

Description and Features

The 12-bit 640MSPS DAC IP Core employs a high-performance current steering architecture and provides an optional differential current output or differential voltage output. The bandgap and current source are included to provide a complete DAC. The DAC can be configured to adjust full-scale output range and has all the necessary calibration circuitry to provide excellent static and dynamic linearity performance. The DAC uses a proprietary architecture that reduces harmonic and intermodulation distortions at high output frequency and amplitudes. Our data converter (ADC and DAC) IP cores offer sampling rates from a few MSPS to over 20GSPS and resolutions ranging from 6 bits to 14 bits.
