Tool Helps Evaluate DDS ICs
Analog Devices Inc. expands its suite of online evaluation tools with the introduction of ADIsimDDS. The ADIsimDDS tool assists users in selecting, evaluating and troubleshooting direct digital synthesis (DDS) ICs from Analog Devices. Using parametric data to mathematically model the general behavior of a selected DDS IC, it allows designers to enter the desired operating conditions, evaluate the quality of the circuit's sine wave and view the resulting harmonic images. The tool allows designers to choose a DDS IC from among ADI's portfolio of products and set general parameters, such as the desired reference clock frequency, output frequency and number of reference clock multipliers required.
