High-Speed DACs

Linear Technology's high-speed current steering digital-to-analog converters offer unparalleled AC and DC performance. These products offer the ideal combination of wide spurious-free dynamic range , low phase noise, low glitch, fast settling time, and low latency operation. These merits help improve the performance of the most demanding communications and instrumentation applications.

The LTC2000 family is supported by the LTDACGen graphical user interface (GUI) which enables generation of single- and multi-tone data, as well as single- and multi-carrier spread-spectrum signals quickly and conveniently.
