Power Supply Reference Design for Optimizing Spur and Phase Noise in RF-sampling DACs

This reference design provides an efficient power supply scheme to power-up the RF-sampling DAC38RF8x digital-to-analog data converter (DAC) without sacrificing performance and also reduces board area and BOM. The reference design uses both DC/DC switchers and an LDO to power-up the DAC38RF8x while (...)

Texas Instruments and Accelerated Designs, Inc. have collaborated together to provide TI customers with schematic symbols and PCB layout footprints for TI products.

Please follow the instructions below to view the CAD symbols:

Step 1: Download and install the Ultra Librarian software

Step 2: Download the Symbol and Footprint from the CAD.bxl file table.

Step 3: Open the .bxl file with the Ultra Librarian software.

You can always access the complete CAD/CAE Symbols database at //webench.ti.com/cad/

Both PCB footprints and schematic symbols are available for download in a vendor neutral format, which can then be exported to the leading EDA CAD/CAE design tools using the Ultra Librarian Reader. The reader is available as a free download.

The UL Reader is a subset of the Ultra Librarian toolset that can generate, import, and export components and their attributes in virtually any EDA CAD/CAE format.

Junction temperature vs. PCB copper coverage area
These are estimated power dissipation and thermal results.
Care must be taken to ensure that device junction temperature
does not exeed the maximum ratings as indicated in the datasheet.

This calculator uses the PCB copper area to estimate the device junction temperature. See notes on usage and calculation method.
