NORWOOD, Mass. -- December 11, 2012

Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), a global leader in high-performance signal
processing technology and the data converter market share leader*, today
introduced the AD9106 quad-channel, 12-bit, and the AD9102 single-channel,
14-bit, 180-MSPS waveform generators, integrating on-chip static random access
memory (SRAM) and direct digital synthesis (DDS) for complex waveform
generation. ADI’s new D/A converters generate the high-speed,
high-dynamic-range, multichannel complex waveforms required in applications
such as ultrasound transducer excitation, medical instrumentation, portable
instrumentation, signal generators and arbitrary waveform generators.

The on-chip DDS operates up to 180 MHz with a 24-bit tuning word, allowing
10.8-Hz/LSB (least significant bit) frequency resolution and providing a
single frequency output for all D/A converters and independent programmable
phase-shift outputs for each D/A converter. Pattern data can include directly
generated SRAM-stored waveforms, DDS outputs amplitude-modulated by SRAM, or
DDS frequency tuning words from SRAM providing chirp or frequency shift keying
(FSK) modulation. An internal pattern-control state machine allows the user to
program the pattern period for all D/A converters, the start delay within the
pattern period for the signal output on each D/A converter channel, as well as
the repetition rate of the pattern. A serial peripheral interface (SPI) is
used to configure the digital waveform generator and load patterns into the
