Targeting high-speed communications, instrumentation and military applications, GSPS DDS ICs with integrated 14bit DACs offer improved dynamic performance.

Targeting high-speed communications, instrumentation and military applications, GSPS DDS ICs with integrated 14bit DACs offer improved dynamic performance Analog Devices has more than doubled the clock speed of direct digital synthesiser (DDS) integrated circuits (ICs) with on-chip 14bit digital-to-analog convertors (DACs)

The industry leader in developing advanced DDS solutions, ADI's DDS ICs use digital technology to synthesise analogue waveforms, used in a wide range of frequency agile applications, such as wireless base stations, military and commercial radar, test equipment and secure communications systems.

The AD9910 and AD9957 are the first DDS devices to achieve speeds of 1Gsample/s, while lowering power consumption by more than 50 percent, ensuring the DDS ICs meet the requirements of a broad range of communications, instrumentation and defence applications.

The 1Gsample/s operating speed combined with the 14bit DAC resolution of the AD9910 DDS allows communications, defence and instrumentation system engineers to improve dynamic performance for output frequencies to 400MHz.
