Data converters bringing the digital world into RF microwave range

Download our free white paper to learn some of the design secrets behind the EV12DS460.

Excerpt:

"Microwave system designers are constantly on the look out to improve performance and attain higher operating bandwidths. Design simplification and the reduction of power, size and weight are also desirable; UWB data converters offer significant system simplification for multi-channel transmit paths. Many component developments have emerged over the last few years that help. However, few of these have the potential impact of a new digital-to-analog converter (DAC), the EV12DS460A. Indeed, the novel DAC claims to place complex bandwidth across a huge spectral range that includes the microwave K-band out to 26.5 GHz.

Initial details of a prototype monolithic microwave IC (MMIC) emerged during last year's European Microwave IC conference. Early indications showed a product capable of turning in solid X-band performance (8 to 12 GHz). Subsequently, detailed wide-band testing revealed that this DAC is capable of lot more than that. The part operates across eight Nyquist zones with a low noise floor and minimal spurious signal generation."

EV12DS460A - the world's first K-band capable Digital-to-Analog Converter. This ground breaking DAC provides an analog bandwidth extending beyond 7 GHz facilitating multi-band, direct digital synthesis up to K-band (26.5 GHz). A flexible 4:1 or 2:1 input multiplexer enables guaranteed sampling rates up to 6 GSps with the capability to operate at 7 GSps.

EV12AS350 - Teledyne e2v's EV12AS350 is set to be the only 12-bit resolution ADC on the market that combines signal digitization at 5.4 GSps, input bandwidth in excess of 4.8 GHz and latency as low as 26 clock cycles with a noise of -150 dBm/Hz. Unlike other ADCs on the market, it will be free of non-harmonic spurs, creating a pure signal for coders to manipulate in a range of demanding applications.
