Quad 12-Bit and Single 14-Bit, 180-MSPS D/A Converters Integrate Complex Waveform Generation Function

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance signal processing technology and the data converter market share leader*, today introduced the AD9106 quad-channel, 12-bit, and the AD9102 single-channel, 14-bit, 180-MSPS waveform generators, integrating on-chip static random access memory (SRAM) and direct digital synthesis (DDS) for complex waveform generation. ADI’s new D/A converters generate the high-speed, high-dynamic-range, multichannel complex waveforms required in applications such as ultrasound transducer excitation, medical instrumentation, portable instrumentation, signal generators and arbitrary waveform generators.

The on-chip DDS operates up to 180 MHz with a 24-bit tuning word, allowing 10.8-Hz/LSB (least significant bit) frequency resolution and providing a single frequency output for all D/A converters and independent programmable phase-shift outputs for each D/A converter. Pattern data can include directly generated SRAM-stored waveforms, DDS outputs amplitude-modulated by SRAM, or DDS frequency tuning words from SRAM providing chirp or frequency shift keying (FSK) modulation. An internal pattern-control state machine allows the user to program the pattern period for all D/A converters, the start delay within the pattern period for the signal output on each D/A converter channel, as well as the repetition rate of the pattern. A serial peripheral interface (SPI) is used to configure the digital waveform generator and load patterns into the SRAM.

AD9106/AD9102 D/A Converters Waveform Generator Features:

  • On-chip 4,096-word pattern memory
  • On-chip DDS with 24-bit tuning word
  • Sleep mode power: < 5 mW @ 3.3 V
  • Supply voltage: 1.8 V to 3.3 V
  • SFDR to Nyquist:
    • 86 dBc @ 1 MHz output
    • 85 dBc @ 10 MHz output
  • Phase noise: −140 dBc/Hz @ 1 kHz offset, 180 MSPS, 8 mA
  • Differential current outputs: 8 mA max @ 3.3 V

Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
