World’s First K-band Digital-to-Analog Converter

e2v has introduced the EV12DS460, the world’s first DAC to perform signal generation directly in the K-band frequency (18 GHz to 27 GHz), removing the need for signal up-conversion and the costly mixers that perform this task. This 6 GSps Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) can achieve clean signal generation up to 26.5 GHz.

The EV12DS460 will enable RF applications operating at higher bands to benefit from system simplification through Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) savings, meeting growing demands to reduce the cost of system ownership.

With an ability to operate in the previously up-converted K-band frequency, the EV12DS460 contains a large choice of DAC settings to optimize performance up to 26.5 GHz. It 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.

Each packaging option for the EV12DS460 guarantees dynamic performance across different temperature ranges, including military grade at -55°C to 125°C, offering a powerful and versatile data conversion solution. Click here to learn more about this product.
