Measure question

Describe what you want to do in more detail.

What range of voltage and current do you need from your DAC? How many bits? How fast?

My 12 bit current dac's clock is 500MHz.
My digital power is 1.8V and analog power is 3.3V.
My outputs must connet to 50 ohm resistors.

What do you mean by "current d/a"?
Do you want a deivce that proces a current proportional to a digital value rarther than a normal DAC which produces a voltage?

What sort of digital interface is the data coming from?

i thionk that u want to convert digital to analog conversion
firstdesgin your spec. for the circuit
then its rating
i mean current voltages and etc.
than after doing it u rin position to do something more
