Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) announced the LTC2000, a 16-bit 2.5Gsps digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with a spectral purity of 74dBc SFDR at 200MHz output, and better than 68dBc SFDR for output frequencies from DC to 1 GHz, a 12 dB improvement over alternative 14-bit DACs. The LTC2000 features low phase noise and a wide 2.1 GHz to 3 dB output bandwidth, enabling broadband or high frequency RF synthesis in applications such as high-end instrumentation, broadband communications, test equipment, cable TV DOCSIS CMTS, and radar. Additional features include:
- A ±1V compliant outputs that features a 40mA full scale current which can be adjusted as low as10mA or as high as 60mA to suit the application.
- An internal pattern generator, LVDS loop out mux, and junction temperature sensing to simplify system development and debug.
- A 16-, 14-, and 11-bit versions in a RoHS compliant 9 x 15 mm BGA package.
