Product Details

The AD91631 is a high performance, 16-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) that supports data rates to 6 GSPS. The DAC core is based on a quad-switch architecture coupled with a 2× interpolator filter that enables an effective DAC update rate of up to 12 GSPS in some modes. The high dynamic range and bandwidth makes this DAC ideally suited for the most demanding high speed radio frequency (RF) DAC applications.

Superior RF performance and deep interpolation rates enable use of the AD9163 in many wireless infrastructure applications, including MC-GSM, W-CDMA, LTE, and LTE-A.

The wide bandwidth of up to 1 GHz and the complex NCO and digital upconverter enable dual band and triple band direct RF synthesis of wireless infrastructure signals, eliminating costly analog upconverters.

Wide analog bandwidth capability combines with high dynamic range to support DOCSIS 3.1 cable infrastructure compliance from the minimum of one carrier up to 1 GHz of signal bandwidth, making it ideal for cable multiple dwelling unit (MDU) applications. A 2× interpolator filter (FIR85) enables the AD9163 to be configured for lower data rates and converter clocking to reduce the overall system power and ease the filtering requirements. In Mix-Mode operation, the AD9163 can reconstruct RF carriers in the second and third Nyquist zones up to 7.5 GHz while still maintaining exceptional dynamic range. The output current can be programmed from 8 mA to 38.76 mA. The AD9163 data interface consists of up to eight JESD204B serializer/deserializer (SERDES) lanes that are programmable in terms of lane speed and number of lanes to enable application flexibility.

A serial peripheral interface (SPI) configures the AD9163 and monitors the status of all the registers. The AD9163 is offered in a 169-ball, 11 mm × 11 mm, 0.8 mm pitch CSP_BGA package.

Using MATLAB with ADS7 and AD916x Eval Boards

The AD916x evaluation boards can be used and controlled by a MATLAB simulation. This enables users to verify simulation results by running on actual hardware.

AD916X Remote Evaluation Tool

This tool gives users access to a live evaluation board in an Analog Devices lab, connected to a Keysight PXA spectrum analyzer and an ADS7-V2EBZ. The user is able to run tests on this remote lab bench to evaluate the AD9161/2/3/4 performance at any time, day or night. It is a great way to check performance of the product before and after purchase of an evaluation board, as well as to compare performance to a user-designed board.

ADIsimRF

ADIsimRF is an easy-to-use RF signal chain calculator. Cascaded gain, noise, distortion and power consumption can be calculated, plotted and exported for signal chains with up to 50 stages. ADIsimRF also includes an extensive data base of device models for ADI’s RF and mixed signal components.

Design Resources

ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well.  "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
