• Balun at the output of AD9786


    I would like to know why on the eval-board there is a 1:1 impedance ratio balun instead of 2:1 ratio at the output of the DAC AD9786. The output current is biased by the 100Ohm differential impedance, isn't it ? So we may need a 2:1 ratio to get 50Ohm…

  • AD9786: Reset timing

    For our application we are using the DAC AD9786 as a straight DAC, that is,
    with the default settings. We are not using the SPI interface either. We want,
    however, to Reset the DAC each time the system is reseted. For that we would
    like to know…

  • AD9786: Propagation delay

    What is the dependency of the propagation delay and settling time of the AD9786?


    Propogation delay is dependent on mostly digital filter configuration since
    each filter has its own group delay depending on #of taps (i.e. group delay=FIR

  • AD9786: Thermal pad connection

    1.) Pg 9 - Pin 2 is DNC
    Pg 47 - Pin 2 is labeled as LPF in the application circuit.

    2.) Pg 55 - Must the thermal pad be connected to AGND or DGND?


    1) DNC = Do Not Connect

    My guess is that figure 88, page 47 is a throwback to the fact that we…

  • AD9786: Current output voltage calculation

    I found a problem with one of my customers where AD9786 full scale output power
    under single tone test condition is only 3 dBm, much lower than the specified
    value 10dBm, so they would like to confirm if max. output power of AD9786 is
    able to…

  • RE: AD9786 maximum analog output frequency

    the answer is "it depends"

    with max input datarate of 200MSPS, the max BW without aliasing is 100MHz. Minus the interpolation filter pass BW, which is typically 80%, assuming interpolation is used. 

    Note that, with Fdac=500MSPS, a 2x interpolation…
