DAC38RF82: Application question

Part Number: DAC38RF82

Hi team,

I'd like to design 2.3GHz-2.5GHz, typical 0.5dBm output system with two lanes input to the DAC.

Should DAC38RF82 support the above application?

If so, could you please let me know the recommended input configuration?

For instance, what is the minimum input line rate?



  • Itoh,

    If using external clock mode, you could operate this DAC with a LMF = 244, interpolate by 24x, complex input data rate = 260MSPS, lane serdes rate = 10,400Mbps and have an output BW up to 2.496GHz.
