Moving RF-modulation, filtering and channel combining into the digital domain has recently enabled an order of magnitude power and size reductions in cable head end equipment.  Small modules on a single line card have replaced racks of cable head-end equipment needed to supply video and high speed data to our homes.  The key to this revolution is the use of RF D/A-Conversion. RF-DACs enable small, low power, GHz bandwidth RF transmitters with good spectral purity and high order modulation schemes to be designed.  As end user demand for bandwidth continues to grow driving increased bandwidth in access networks RF-DACs are finding applications beyond cable.  We will discuss RF-DACs, their function and their application in the design of highly flexible RF transmitters with wide bandwidths, small form factors and low power.
