T2M DAC 16bit 5Gsps Current Steering DAC IP Core

16bit 5Gsps Current Steering DAC IP Core

Description and Features

16-bit 5GSPS DAC IP Core utilizes a high-performance current steering design and offers the option of either a differential current output or a differential voltage output. It includes a bandgap and current source to form a comprehensive DAC. This DAC can be customized to adjust the full-scale output range and features all necessary calibration circuitry for exceptional static and dynamic linearity performance. Its proprietary architecture minimizes harmonic and intermodulation distortions, particularly at high output frequencies and amplitudes. This data converter  IP cores cover sampling rates from a few MSPS to over 20GSPS and resolutions ranging from 6 to 14 bits.
