The world’s first K-band capable Digital-to-Analog Converter

This ground breaking DAC provides an analog bandwidth extending beyond 7GHz facilitating multi-band, direct digital synthesis up to
K-band (26.5GHz). A flexible 4:1 or 2:1 input multiplexer enables guaranteed sampling rates up to 6 GSps with the capability to operate at 7 GSps.

The EV12DS460 is equipped with four output operating modes (NRZ, RTZ, NRTZ & RF) and includes an option for program pulse shaping, making it proficient at handling the most specific of RF applications.
