The AD91641 is a high performance, 16-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and direct digital synthesizer (DDS) that supports update 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 these DACs ideally suited for the most demanding high speed radio frequency (RF) DAC applications.
The DDS consists of a bank of 32, 32-bit numerically controlled oscillators (NCOs), each with its own phase accumulator.
When combined with a 100 MHz serial peripheral interface (SPI) and fast hop modes, phase coherent fast frequency hopping (FFH) is enabled, with several modes to support multiple applications.
In baseband mode, 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 the full maximum spectrum of 1.791 GHz of signal bandwidth. A 2× interpolator filter (FIR85) enables the AD9164 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 AD9164 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 AD9164 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.
An SPI interface configures the AD9164 and monitors the status of all registers. The AD9164 is offered in a 165-ball, 8 mm × 8 mm, 0.5 mm pitch CSP_BGA package, and a 169-ball, 11 mm × 11 mm, 0.8 mm pitch, CSP_BGA package, including a leaded ball option.
- High dynamic range and signal reconstruction bandwidth supports RF signal synthesis of up to 7.5 GHz.
- Up to eight lanes JESD204B SERDES interface flexible in terms of number of lanes and lane speed.
- Bandwidth and dynamic range to meet DOCSIS 3.1 compliance and multiband wireless communications standards with margin.
- Broadband communications systems
- DOCSIS 3.1 CMTS/ video on demand (VOD)/edge quadrature amplitude modulation (EQAM)
- Wireless communications infrastructure
- W-CDMA, LTE, LTE-A, point to point
Markets & Technology
Product Lifecycle Recommended for New Designs
This product has been released to the market. The data sheet contains all final specifications and operating conditions. For new designs, ADI recommends utilization of these products.
Evaluation Kits (2)
This user guide is for the AD9161, AD9162, AD9163, and AD9164 evaluation board. The evaluation board connects to an ADS7-V2EBZ pattern generator for quick evaluation of the AD9161, AD9162, AD9163, and AD9164, high speed, RF digital-to-analog converters (RF DACs). The ADS7-V2EBZ automatically formats the data and sends it to the evaluation board, which simplifies evaluation of the device. The evaluation board runs from the FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) power supply.
The evaluation board includes a clock buffer, the AD9508, which provides the reference clock and SYSREF± pins to the ADS7-V2EBZ, and the SYSREF± pins signal to the DAC.
The evaluation board can be driven by an external clock or the on-board clock (ADF4355). There is a single-pole, double throw (SPDT) switch on the board for selecting the clock source.
Features & Benefits
- Full featured evaluation board for the AD9161, AD9162, AD9163, and AD9164
- ACE software for control
- Direct clocking vs. on-board clocking
- Showing RF modes of the DAC, including mixed mode and 2× NRZ
- NCO only mode

- One (1) FMC+ connector.
- Twenty (20) 16Gbps transceivers supported by one (1) FMC+ connector.
- DDR4 SDRAM.
- Simple USB 3.0 port interface.
Software & Systems Requirements
Tools & Simulations
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.
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.
Simulate performance of ADCs and DACs under your operating conditions.
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.
