The AD9786 is a 16-bit, high speed, CMOS DAC with 2x/4x/8x interpolation and signal processing features tuned for communications applications. It offers state-of-the-art distortion and noise performance. The AD9786 was developed to meet the demanding performance requirements of multicarrier and third generation base stations. The selectable interpolation filters simplify interfacing to a variety of input data rates while also taking advantage of oversampling performance gains. The modulation modes allow convenient bandwidth placement and selectable sideband suppression. The flexible clock interface accepts a variety of input types such as 1 V p-p sine wave, CMOS, and LVPECL in single-ended or differential mode. Internal dividers generate the required data rate interface clocks.
