HIGH SPEED ADC EVALUATION BOARDS

High Speed ADC Evaluation Boards

Shorten design times by using evaluation boards that quickly evaluate the features and performance of selected products. These data capture kits enable you to take blocks of digital data from Analog Devices' high-speed ADC evaluation boards. There are two types of data capture kits available, FPGA-based and FIFO-based. Refer to the chart below to determine which data capture kit is required to evaluate an ADC of interest.

ADS7-V1: FPGA-BASED DATA CAPTURE KIT

The ADS7-V1 Evaluation Board was developed to support the evaluation of Analog Devices high speed A/D converters, D/A converters and Transceivers with JESD204B bit rates up to 13.1 Gbps. The Quick Start Wiki site listed below provides a high level overview of the platform. In addition, each use case of the board has its own section (e.g. Using the ADS7-V1 for High Speed A/D Converter Evaluation). The ADS7-V1 is intended to be used only with specified Analog Devices Evaluation Boards. The ADS7-V1 is not intended to be used as a development platform, and no support is available for standalone operation. Please refer to Xilinx and its approved distributors for FPGA Development Kits.
