DATEL has announced the DAC-12100 series of low power 12bit current output DAC that have TTL and CMOS compatible inputs. With a 100MHz conversion rate, these DACs suit any speed critical applications such as radar, signal reconstruction, waveform generators and communications equipment. The complementary current outputs of 0 to -20.48mA can directly drive 50Ω loads. Dynamic performance, to Nyquist at fOUT of 2.02MHz, provides a SFDR (spurious free dynamic range) specification of –85dB. The converters are claimed to use a R/2R resistor network and a segmented switching current cell arrangement in order to reduce glitch energy. The DACs are available in a hermetically sealed 28pin CLCC (ceramic leadless chip carrier) solder dipped leads package measuring 11.43x11.43mm. The DACs are designed for harsh and rugged application environments, such as military and avionic platforms...
