12-bit DAC offers high dynamic performance

The 12-bit 4.0-Gsample/s MAX19693 D/A converter achieves an SFDR of greater than 70 dBc for output frequencies less than 800 MHz, and 62 dBc at an output frequency of 1,500 MHz. At a 4.0-Gsample/s update rate and 200-MHz output frequency, the device offers a wideband-noise spectral density of −164 dBm/Hz.

The DAC operates from 3.3- and 1.8-V supplies, and consumes 1,180 mW at 4.0 Gsamples/s. Fully specified over the -40° to 85°C extended temperature range, it is available in a 169-ball CSBGA package. (Call company for pricing and availability.)
