Norwood, MA (04/25/2011) - Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal processing applications, today introduced direct digital synthesis (DDS) ICs that offer 30 percent lower power consumption and a 60 percent reduction in footprint than competing devices while operating over the extended temperature range of -40º C to 125º C. The AD9838 DDS and AD9837 DDS ICs consume as little as 11 mW when operating from clock rates up to 16 MHz. The new devices are well suited for industrial and communications applications, including sensory excitation, impedance spectroscopy and battery-enabled diagnostic and communication equipment.
The AD9838 DDS and AD9837 DDS ICs settle in nanoseconds with granularity well below 100 mHz. Along with an on-chip, 10-bit, low-power DAC (digital-to-analog converter), the new products offer 28-bit fine-tuning granularity and high SFDR (spurious-free dynamic range) performance that enable them to more quickly and accurately generate a stable signal in the band of interest.
