Teledyne e2v 12 GSps RF DACs Operate in Ka-Bands

The DACs integrate direct digital synthesis, a programmable anti-sinc filter, a digital up-converter with four interpolation stages and sinc compensation, and a programmable complex mixer.

Teledyne e2v is beginning sampling of the board-level EV12DD700 dual-channel RF DACs, which can operate in Ka-band microwave frequencies. The 12 GSps devices support an output bandwidth of 25 GHz at just 3 dB attenuation.

The DACs integrate direct digital synthesis, a programmable anti-sinc filter, a digital up-converter with four interpolation stages and sinc compensation, and a programmable complex mixer for RF signal processing tasks.

EV12DD700 DACs can be accessed through an evaluation kit, and lab measurement data will be made available later this year.
