How New DAC Technologies are Changing Signal Generation For Test (.PDF Download)

Digital-to-analog converters (DACs) have been widely used since the 1980s in arbitrary function generators (AFGs) and arbitrary waveform generators (AWGs) to produce signals for verification, characterization, and stress/margin testing. However, advances in DAC technologies and techniques enabled them to directly generate highly detailed RF and electronic-warfare (EW) signals or the complex pulse trains used in advanced research, making them very suitable for high-end applications such as qua
