MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. Feb. 22, 2011

Chris Chi

The new DesignWare Data Converter IP solutions for the SMIC 65-nm LL process consist of a comprehensive portfolio of low power, compact ADCs and DACs for broadband wireless communications, including high-speed ADCs and DACs for the receive and transmit path as well as very efficient auxiliary converters for general purpose applications, including:

  • 10-bit 80 MSPS Dual pipeline ADC
  • 10/8-bit 2 MSPS SAR ADC with differential 8:1 input mux
  • 12-bit 160 MSPS Current Steering IQDAC
  • 11-bit 20 MSPS General Purpose DAC

These IP products offer a highly flexible analog interface that simplifies the connection between the digital SoC and the RFIC or other transceivers, eliminating the need for external components. These elements help designers reduce silicon costs and significantly simplify the integration of the IP into a SoC.
