Technology: Si-Ge vs CMOS Micram DAC 3 digial to analog Si-Ge converter - the heart of the DAC7201 System Powered by the world record-setting Micram DAC3 UltraFastSiGe™ digital to analog converter, the AWG6010 enables researchers and engineers to generate high order complex modulation, such as 32-QAM, 64-QAM, OFDM and advanced 4D formats, at performance levels never previously achieved. Example DAC7201 system output at 34 Gb/s, PRBS-31 showing fast rise and fall times and extremely low jitter Example DAC7201 system output at 34 Gb/s, PAM-4 showing fast rise and fall times and extremely low jitter. Signal generated with 68 GS/s Sample Rate with 2 bits/ Page 2 Bandwidth performance comparison between Si-Ge digital to analog converter and equivalent CMOS digital to analog converter (green plot). DAC7201 72G/S Digital to Analog Converter System Applications: USPA Board Architecture Coherent Optical Applications Many channels often means many screens, confusing controls and a lot of time wasted. We’ve put everything you need for the DAC7201 on one board; it’s easy to see all operational aspects in one glance, and changes can be made to channels individually, or all together. User custom setups can be easily saved and reload for future use. Multi level signal generation High Speed SERDES Characterization Advanced Electronic Research USPA Board System Block Diagram Example: AWG output of a 66 Gb/s PAM-4 signal showing fast rise and fall times and extremely low jitter. Example PAM-8 waveform generated via Matlab signal processing. The waveform gets then loaded and generated by the DAC7201 System DAC7201 72G/S Digital to Analog Converter System The DAC7201 provides fully automatic synchronization of 2 to data output channels, industry-leading sampling performance of up to 72 GS/s with 24 GHz analog bandwidth and a powerful, fully integrated, easy to use MATLAB programming interface.
