Swift™ Digital to Analog Converter IP

Omni Design offers a family of high-speed, low power Swift™ Digital to Analog Converter IP (DAC) data converters. Targeting applications such as 5G, Wireless and Wireline communications, automotive ethernet, LiDAR, RADAR and image sensors in advanced process nodes from 28nm to advanced FinFET at several foundries.

High Performance Solutions

Our high-performance current steering digital to analog IP (DAC) use a proprietary architecture that reduces harmonic and intermodulation distortions at high output frequency and amplitudes. The high-performance Swift™ DAC’s supports from 5ma to 20mA (maximum) differential output current range and achieves up to ‑153dBm/Hz noise spectral density with excellent SFDR.

  • 6 to 16 bits resolution
  • 5 MSa/s to 100+ GSa/s update rates
  • Configurable as I/Q DACs or multi-channel DACs
  • Built-in Internal calibration
  • Easily integrates with Omni bandgap reference, voltage regulators and input buffers – see all our technology solutions
  • Available in advanced FinFET nodes to 28nm

Technology Overview

Omni’s high-Speed digital to analog converter IP is critical in communications systems transmit and receive path, and also in active (RADAR & LiDAR) imaging systems. Both applications require a high degree of linearity and phase control, over a wide bandwidth.

DAC calibration is built into and runs in the background to compensates for both static and dynamic conditions.

Utilizing a patented architecture that provides high linearity over wide bandwidths makes Omni’s DAC IP ideally suited to these applications.

Omni Design’ Swift™ data converters have small footprints and are available in process nodes from 28nm to advanced FinFET.

Optional Digital Up Converters (DUC) are available to increase system compatibility.

The DAC’s are available as individual IP blocks or matched IQ pairs and can be efficiently arrayed for large number of input channels
