8/10-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter


Product icon for 8/10-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter

Product Overview

The agileDAC GP is a digital-to-analog converter that uses a traditional capacitive DAC architecture. The agileDAC uses its own internal reference voltage. The architecture can achieve up to 10-bit resolution at sample rates up to 16 Msps.

Agile Analog designs are based on tried and tested architectures to ensure reliability and functionality. Our design methodology is programmatic, systematic and repeatable leading to analog IP that is more verifiable, more robust and more reliable. Our methodology also allows us to quickly re-target our IP to different process options. We support all the major foundries including TSMC, GlobalFoundries, Intel Foundry, Samsung Foundry, UMC and Other Foundries.
