10-/12-Bit, Low Power, Broadband MxFE

Manufactured by:

To evaluate the full capabilities of the AD9963, an AD9963-EBZ evaluation board and AD-DPGIOZ pattern generator/receiver are required. If you do not have either of these components already, please be sure to order both.

Product Details

The AD9961/AD9963 are pin-compatible, 10-/12-bit, low power MxFE® converters that provide two ADC channels with sample rates of 100 MSPS and two DAC channels with sample rates to 170 MSPS. These converters are optimized for transmit and receive signal paths of communication systems requiring low power and low cost. The digital interfaces provide flexible clocking options. The transmit is configurable for 1×, 2×, 4×, and 8× interpolation. The receive path has a bypassable 2× decimating low-pass filter.

The AD9961 and AD9963 have five auxiliary analog channels. Three are inputs to a 12-bit ADC. Two of these inputs can be configured as outputs by enabling 10-bit DACs. The other two channels are dedicated outputs from two independent 12-bit DACs.

The high level of integrated functionality, small size, and low power dissipation of the AD9961/AD9963 make them well- suited for portable and low power applications.

Product Details

The DPGI/O provides pattern generation and receiving capabilities to compliment several evaluation boards from Analog Devices. The DPGI/O connects to a PC over USB, and allows a user to download a vector from their PC into the DPGI/O’s internal memory, or to receive a vector from an evaluation board and transfer it to the PC.

Analog Devices' pattern generator/receivers and evaluation boards are designed and sold solely to support an efficient and thorough means by which to evaluate Analog Devices components in a lab environment for a wide range of end applications. Any application or use of the pattern generators and/or evaluation boards, other than specified above, will not be supported.
