Hosted by Alix Paultre, the Tinker's Toolbox is the Advantage Design Group's web-based interview show where we talk about the latest technology, components, and design issues for the electronic design engineering community.
In this episode, we talk to Maury Wood, Senior Director at NXP Semiconductors, about high-speed data converters. We discuss the industry and the challenges to the engineer, and NXP's latest high-speed 16-bit dual channel DAC, the DAC1627D1G25. It has selectable ×2, ×4 and ×8 interpolating filters optimized for multi-carrier and broadband wireless transmitters at sample rates of up to 1.25 Gsps. Supplied from a 3.3 V and a 1.8 V source, the DAC1627D1G25 integrates a differential scalable output current up to 31.8 mA.
