Product Details

The AD9154 is a quad, 16-bit, high dynamic range digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that provides a maximum sample rate of 2.4 GSPS, permitting multicarrier generation up to the Nyquist frequency in baseband mode. The AD9154 includes features optimized for direct conversion transmit applications including complex digital modulation, input signal power detection, and gain, phase, and offset compensation. The DAC outputs are optimized to interface seamlessly with the ADRF6720-27 radio frequency quadrature modulator (AQM) from Analog Devices, Inc. In mix mode, the AD9154 DAC can reconstruct carriers in the second and third Nyquist Zones. A serial port interface (SPI) provides the programming/readback of internal parameters. The full-scale output current can be programmed over a range of 4 mA to 20 mA. The AD9154 is available in two different 88-lead LFCSP packages.


  1. Ultrawide signal bandwidth enables emerging wideband and multiband wireless applications.
  2. Advanced low spurious and distortion design techniques provide high quality synthesis of wideband signals from baseband to high intermediate frequencies.
  3. JESD204B Subclass 1 support simplifies multichip synchronization.
  4. Small package size with a 12 mm × 12 mm footprint.

JESD204x Frame Mapping Table Generator

The JESD204x Frame Mapping Table Generator tool consists of two Windows executables that will allow the user to input any valid combination of JESD204x parameters (L, M, F, S, NP) in order to output a .csv file that illustrates the frame mapping of the JESD204x mode in table format. There is an executable that allows the user to input a single JESD204x mode and another, that allows the user to input the parameters for multiple JESD204x modes in a specified .csv format in order to output a .csv file that illustrates the frame mapping of each of the JESD204x modes that were input into separate tables.
