25-GSamples/s DAC Powers Function Modules

April 3, 2013
 A line of function modules is now available to generate signals through about 12 GHz using a 25-GSamples/s, 10-b DAC.

A high-performance digital-to-analog converter (DAC) has found a new home. Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions has applied the industry’s first 10-b, 25-GSamples/s DAC application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), the model TDAC-25 from Tektronix, to its new CHAMP-WB family of OpenVPX™ signal-processing modules. The DAC is capable of a 60-dB dynamic range and can directly generate wideband signals through microwave frequencies.
