What is the Mix-Mode function of the AD9129 and AD9119?


Mix-Mode enhances the DAC output power in the 2nd and 3rd Nyquist zone thus
increasing the usable output bandwidth of the device. In Mix-Mode the output is
effectively chopped at the DAC sample rate which has the effect of reducing the
power of the fundamental signal while increasing the power of the images
centered around the DAC sample rate. This improves the dynamic range of these
images. (See attachement)
