The AD9752 is a 12-bit resolution, wideband, second generation
member of the TxDAC series of high performance, low power
CMOS digital-to-analog-converters (DACs). The TxDAC family,
which consists of pin compatible 8-, 10-, 12-, and 14-bit DACs, is
specifically optimized for the transmit signal path of communica-
tion systems. All of the devices share the same interface options,
small outline package and pinout, thus providing an upward or
downward component selection path based on performance,
resolution and cost. The AD9752 offers exceptional ac and dc
performance while supporting update rates up to 125 MSPS.
The AD9752’s flexible single-supply operating range of 4.5 V to
5.5 V and low power dissipation are well suited for portable and
low power applications. Its power dissipation can be further
reduced to a mere 65 mW, without a significant degradation in
performance, by lowering the full-scale current output. Also, a
power-down mode reduces the standby power dissipation to
approximately 20 mW.
The AD9752 is manufactured on an advanced CMOS process.
A segmented current source architecture is combined with a
proprietary switching technique to reduce spurious components
and enhance dynamic performance. Edge-triggered input latches
and a 1.2 V temperature compensated bandgap reference have
been integrated to provide a complete monolithic DAC solution.
The digital inputs support +2.7 V to +5 V CMOS logic families.

FUNCTIONAL BLOCK DIAGRAM
DIGITAL DATA INPUTS (DB11–DB0)
The AD9752 is a current-output DAC with a nominal full-scale
output current of 20 mA and > 100 kΩ output impedance.
Differential current outputs are provided to support single-
ended or differential applications. Matching between the two
current outputs ensures enhanced dynamic performance in a
differential output configuration. The current outputs may be
tied directly to an output resistor to provide two complemen-
tary, single-ended voltage outputs or fed directly into a trans-
former. The output voltage compliance range is 1.25 V.
The on-chip reference and control amplifier are configured for
maximum accuracy and flexibility. The AD9752 can be driven
by the on-chip reference or by a variety of external reference
voltages. The internal control amplifier, which provides a wide
(>10:1) adjustment span, allows the AD9752 full-scale current
to be adjusted over a 2 mA to 20 mA range while maintaining
excellent dynamic performance. Thus, the AD9752 may oper-
ate at reduced power levels or be adjusted over a 20 dB range to
provide additional gain ranging capabilities.
The AD9752 is available in 28-lead SOIC and TSSOP packages.
It is specified for operation over the industrial temperature range.
1. The AD9752 is a member of the wideband TxDAC product
family that provides an upward or downward component selec-
tion path based on resolution (8 to 14 bits), performance and
cost. The entire family of TxDACs is available in industry
2. Manufactured on a CMOS process, the AD9752 uses a
proprietary switching technique that enhances dynamic
performance beyond that previously attainable by higher
power/cost bipolar or BiCMOS devices.
3. On-chip, edge-triggered input CMOS latches interface readily
to +2.7 V to +5 V CMOS logic families. The AD9752 can
support update rates up to 125 MSPS.
4. A flexible single-supply operating range of 4.5 V to 5.5 V and
a wide full-scale current adjustment span of 2 mA to 20 mA
allow the AD9752 to operate at reduced power levels.
5. The current output(s) of the AD9752 can be easily config-
ured for various single-ended or differential circuit topologies.
