Direct digital synthesis of signals in the hundreds of megahertz can lead to simpler, smaller transceivers, free of images and LO feedthrough that plague systems requiring analog upconversion. We present a 3-bit, 2 GS/s, ΔΣ-modulated DAC in InP HBT technology. The DAC is linearized using bandpass mismatch shaping. The mismatch shaper uses seven tunable 1.5-bit discrete-time bandpass ΔΣ modulators to dynamically route the digital signals to the DACs. These ΔΣ modulators operate in the analog domain to decrease system complexity and power consumption. The mismatch-shaped DAC can generate narrowband signals between 250-750 MHz with >68 dB SNR in a 1-MHz bw, >74-dB SFDR, and <-80-dBc intermodulation distortion with an 8.1-W power consumption.
