11 10 Amplitude Errors Quantized waveform Sinewave Therefore there will be spectral components 6.02N quantization noise is only valid when clock and data are uncorrelated. NOT THE CASE for a DDS! DAC non-linearities INL and DNL spurs will alias Harmonics from the analog output stage will NOT alias

12 11 Aliased Distortion Terms Freq Distortion in an analog system Freq Fs2Fs Distortion in an sampled system All the distortion terms show up in the passband

13 12 Effects of Choosing an Odd Value For M PHASE TIME 2 n -1 0 M=4 PHASE TIME 2 n -1 0 M=

14 13 Effect Sampling Clock / Output Frequency Ratio on SFDR for Ideal 12-bit DAC (A) F OUT = MHz, f S = MHz FFT SIZE = 8192 THEORETICAL 12-BIT SNR = 74dB FFT PROCESS GAIN = 36dB = 10log(8192/2) FFT NOISE FLOOR = 110dBFS SFDR = 77dBc SFDR = 94dBc Ratio = 80/2 = 40 Ratio = 80/ = 103/4096 (B) F OUT = MHz, f S = MHz

15 14 Phase Truncation Errors Green points (outer circle) show n=8 phase accumulator 256 phase steps M=6 in this illustration Red points (inner circle) show p=5 32 steps passed on the phase- amplitude converter 3 points get truncated, but the 1 st and 4 th do not As the phase moves around the circle, the error becomes periodic Phase error = Amplitude error Due to phase-amplitude converter Periodic phase error = periodic amplitude error = spectral component

16 15 Phase Truncation Error (Time Domain) Not only is the error periodic, but it also has a ramp shape Therefore we expect the spectral components fall at a 1/m rate (m = harmonic number)

17 16 Phase Truncation Error (Frequency Domain) However, since this is a phenomenon in the digital domain, these spurs will alias. The largest spur is approximately -6.02p dBc (e.g., -72 dBc for p=12)

22 21 IQ Modulation The DDS is the LO for the Quadrature Modulator Everything is in the Digital Domain and can be made as perfect as necessary by adding more bits Upsampling gives the DDS room to move the signal around

23 22 Multiple DDS Precise phase control allows use in beam forming systems Each DDS starts up in its own phase Phase offsets compensate for phase mismatch in analog reconstruction filters

24 23 COS(X) FTW Frequency Accumulator Phase Offset DAC DDS Channel for spur reduction DDS Channel for amplitude modulation DDS Channel for phase modulation Register SpurKiller Technology Use an auxiliary DDS channel to add in a signal at the same frequency and amplitude as the spur, but 180° out of phase with the highest spur… AD9911 DDS core
