High-speed DAC for 8-bits

Question asked by Kaiser on May 20, 2014

I am interested in a DAC for 8-bts that can work at high speed with output of about 2 to 3 Volts. I am using a FPGA to generate 8 bits, which I need to convert into an analog voltage to drive an optical modulator, which requires a voltage in a range from 0 to up to about 2 to 3.5 volts to modulate the light. My application requires fast conversion: I would like to convert this 8-bit code into the analog voltage within 10 ns, so I would like to know which DAC chip I should use and if possible I would like to have an evaluation board for this chip.

 

Many thanks.
