Solving the Elusive Baseband to Antenna Problem using RFDAC Technology
We’ll start by exploring RF transmitter architectures, then we’ll concentrate on the Direct to RF Transmitter architecture enabled by RFDAC technology. Aspects of direct to RF transmitter system design will be explored including gain, signal bandwidth, digital signal processing requirements, frequency planning, thermal noise, clock synthesis + phase noise, harmonics, sampling images, pre-distortion techniques and deterministic latency.
Fundamentals of Designing with Analog to Digital Converters
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND: an update to The Fundamentals of the Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) webcast, including basic ADC architectures, understanding ADC errors, how to read an ADC data sheet, and how to choose the right ADC. Includes the latest on ADC products and technology.
Demystifying the JESD204B High-speed Data Converter-to-FPGA interface
This webcast will provide an overview of the JESD204 standard from its original version up to the current "B" revision. In addition, common "high-performance metrics" that are associated with high speed serial interfaces such as JESD204 will be described. Topics covered in this webcast will also be useful for applications that use similar high speed serial interfaces.
Webcast: Five Things You Don't Know about DACs
This webcast presents the five key specification areas of Precision Digital to Analog Converters (DAC): Resolution and Accuracy, Total Unadjusted Error, Output Noise, Buffering and finally Dynamic Performance. This webcast will give you a deeper understanding of DACs and how their specifications can impact system level performance.
