TDAC-2000 High Speed DAC
Available from Tektronix Component Solutions
The TDAC-2000 is the world’s fastest commercially available 10-bit DAC (digital-to-analog converter) module, providing single-channel waveform generation at 12 GS/s (Gigasamples per second). Providing access to proprietary Tektronix ASIC technology, the TDAC-2000 is able to sustain full-bandwidth streaming at 120 Gigabits per second.
The module is comprised of multiplexers and a 10-bit digital-to-analog converter operating at 12 GS/s. Data is supplied to the multiplexers via 320 data lines at 375 Mbps (120 Gbps aggregate rate) using clocks generated by the DAC and multiplexers from a 12 GHz input clock.
The TDAC-2000 can be used can be used for application prototype development and can also be deployed in embedded systems where the form factor is acceptable. Typical applications include Digital RF Memory (DRFM), electronic warfare systems, radar simulation, embedded Automated Test Equipment (ATE) and high-speed communications systems.
In addition to our TDAC-2000 digital-to-analog converter module that can be delivered “off-the-shelf,” Tektronix Component Solutions can also create a custom DAC solution to meet your specific form, fit and function requirements.
