DDS db range

i have some question regarding spur free db range for DDS.


I set to 60db, when running a single freq, it give me that range, but If I run the test in stream mode and give freq. increment 1khz/clk, the dynamic range is only 30db ish.  any idea?

Re: DDS db range

Phase dithering or Taylor series correction options provide high dynamic range signals using minimal FPGA resources. Supports SFDR from 18 dB to 150 dB.

The expected Spurious Free Dynamic Range of a rasterized design is 6 dB per bit of the output data field.
