The DAC38RFxx is a family of high-performance, dual/single-channel, 14-bit, 9-GSPS,
RF-sampling digital-to-analog converters (DACs) that are capable of synthesizing wideband signals
from 0 to 4.5 GHz. A high dynamic range allows the DAC38RFxx family to generate 3G/4G signals for
wireless basestations with an output frequency up to 4 GHz.
The devices feature a low-power JESD204B Interface with up to 8 lanes, and provides a
maximum bit rate of 12.5 Gbps and input sample rate of 1.25 GSPS complex per channel. The DAC38RFxx
provides two digital upconverters per DAC, with multiple interpolation rates and a digital
quadrature modulator with independent, frequency flexible NCOs. An optional low-jitter PLL/VCO
simplifies the DAC clock generation by allowing use of a lower frequency reference clock.
