D/A converter supports multi-carrier wireless standards using less PCB space
The AD9146 D/A converter also integrates an 8-bit LVDS interface and low-noise PLL clock multiplier, which allow design engineers to implement up to six transmit channels using half the PCB space previously required.
The AD9146 features 2x and 4x interpolators with coarse modulation that enables baseband signals to be placed in the D/A converter bandwidth to ease design engineers’ system frequency planning. The low noise figure and an IMD (inter-modulation distortion) of 81 dBc at 100 MHz help this component to achieve a superior ACLR (adjacent-channel leakage ratio) of 82 dBc at 122 MHz IF for W-CDMA single-channel applications.
The AD9146 packaged in a 7 mm x 7 mm 48-lead LFCSP is available now.
