Keywords:digital-to-analog converter? hold times? setup?

Meeting the digital timing requirements for high-speed digital-to-analog converters (DACs) is critical for achieving maximum performance. As clock frequencies increase, setup and hold times for the data interface become significant concerns for the system designer. The goal of this application note is to thoroughly explain the setup and hold times as they pertain to Maxim's high-performance converter solutions.

This application note defines setup and hold times for high-speed DACs and identifies their proper interpretation. High-speed DACs often specify these two parameters as "signed" values, and interpreting them with regard to data transition can be challenging. The application presented in this article helps offset this challenge.
