Micram Debuts 100 GS/s VEGA DAC4 at OFC 2016

At the OFC Expo in Anaheim, Micram’s latest generation of its UltraFastSiGe™ VEGA digital to analog converter made its debut. The new VEGA DAC4 achieves a blisteringly fast sample rate of 100 GS/s, the highest rate available in a DAC today. With exception analog bandwidth exceeding 40 GHz at 100 GS/s, VEGA DAC4 is the world’s fastest D/A converter.

Some technical highlights of the VEGA DAC4:

64 Gbps pam 4

64 Gbps PAM-4 signal generated at 64 GS/s

• Signal generation up to 100 Gbps
