Cadence® DAC IP is a set of hardened IP for converting digital data to analog signals. Cadence DAC IP comes in single-, dual-, and -octal channel versions with resolutions up to 14 bits, conversion rates up to 3GHz, and in sizes as small as 0.30mm2.

Our DAC IP includes built-in, programmable features such as 6-bit Gain DAC, FIFO interface, voltage reference, and high-power supply rejection ration (PSRR) voltage regulator.

We designed this IP for easy integration into your SoC design by using low, non-restrictive metal stacks and self-contained analog macro design.

Along with the beneficial features already mentioned, our DAC IP also offers:

  • Integrated voltage reference for high PSRR
  • >80dbB linearity at 50MHz
  • High testability: analog test bus, access for characterization and test
