The AD9761 is a complete dual-channel, high speed, 10-bit CMOS DAC. The AD9761 has been developed specifically for use in wide bandwidth communication applications (e.g., spread spectrum) where digital I and Q information is being processed during transmit operations. It integrates two 10-bit, 40 MSPS DACs, dual 2 interpolation filters, a voltage reference, and digi- tal input interface circuitry. The AD9761 supports a 20 MSPS per channel input data rate that is then interpolated by 2 up to 40 MSPS before simultaneously updating each DAC. The interleaved I and Q input data stream is presented to the digital interface circuitry, which consists of I and Q latches as well as some additional control logic. The data is de-interleaved back into its original I and Q data. An on-chip state machine ensures the proper pairing of I and Q data. The data output from each latch is then processed by a 2 digital interpolation filter that eases the reconstruction filter requirements. The interpo- lated output of each filter serves as the input of their respective 10-bit DAC. The DACs utilize a segmented current source architecture com- bined with a proprietary switching technique to reduce glitch energy and to maximize dynamic accuracy. Each DAC provides differential current output, thus supporting single-ended or dif- ferential applications. Both DACs are simultaneously updated and provide a nominal full-scale current of 10 mA. Also, the full-scale currents between each DAC are matched to within 0.07 dB (i.e., 0.75%), thus eliminating the need for additional gain calibration circuitry. The AD9761 is manufactured on an advanced low cost CMOS process. It operates from a single supply of 3V to 5.5 V and consumes 200 mW of power.To make the AD9761 complete, it also offers an internal 1.20V temperature-compensated band gap reference.
