The AD9773 is the 12-bit member of the AD977x pin-compatible, high performance, programmable 2×/4×/8× interpolating TxDAC+® family. The AD977x family features a serial port interface (SPI) that provides a high level of programmability, thus allowing for enhanced system-level options. These options include selectable 2×/4×/8× interpolation filters; fS/2, fS/4, or fS/8 digital quadrature modulation with image rejection; a direct IF mode; programmable channel gain and offset control; programmable internal clock divider; straight binary or twos complement data interface; and a single-port or dual-port data interface.
The selectable 2×/4×/8× interpolation filters simplify the requirements of the reconstruction filters while simultaneously enhancing the TxDAC+ family’s pass-band noise/distortion performance. The independent channel gain and offset adjust registers allow the user to calibrate LO feedthrough and side-band suppression errors associated with analog quadrature modulators. The 6 dB of gain adjustment range can also be used to control the output power level of each DAC.
The AD9773 features the ability to perform fS/2, fS/4, and fS/8 digital modulation and image rejection when combined with an analog quadrature modulator. In this mode, the AD9773 accepts I and Q complex data (representing a single or multi-carrier waveform), generates a quadrature modulated IF signal along with its orthogonal representation via its dual DACs, and presents these two reconstructed orthogonal IF carriers to an analog quadrature modulator to complete the image rejection upconversion process. Another digital modulation mode (for example, the direct IF mode) allows the original baseband signal representation to be frequency translated such that pairs of images fall at multiples of one-half the DAC update rate.
Dual high performance DAC outputs provide a differential current output programmable over a 2 mA to 20 mA range. The AD9773 is manufactured on an advanced 0.35 micron CMOS process, operates from a single supply of 3.1 V to 3.5 V, and consumes 1.2 W of power.

DAC Harmonic Analyzer
This tool displays harmonic images and spurs in a DAC output. The user can define a post-DAC analog filter to suppress these images. The effect of this filter is plotted on the graph and shown in the accompanying chart.
