The AD9736, AD9735, and AD9734 are high performance, high frequency DACs that provide sample rates of up to 1200 MSPS, permitting multi-carrier generation up to their Nyquist frequency. The AD9736 is the 14 bit member of the family, while the AD9735 and the AD9734 are the 12 and 10 bit members, respectively. They include a serial peripheral interface (SPI) port that provides for programming many internal parameters and also enables read-back of status registers. They use a reduced specification LVDS interface to minimize data interface noise that may degrade performance. The output current can be programmed over a range of 10mA to 30mA. The AD9736 family is manufactured on a 0.18m CMOS process and operates from 1.8V and 3.3V supplies for a total power consumption of 380mW in bypass mode. It is supplied in a 160 pin BGA package for reduced package parasitics.
