The evaluation board for the AD5259 contains an SDP connection and software which allows the AD5259 to be controlled from an SDP board.
This evaluation board requires an SDP Controller board for connection to the PC. The SDP controller board connects to the PC via USB 2.0. The evaluation board will connect to the SDP controller board. The evaluation board cannot be connected directly to the PC. The evaluation software running on the PC will communicate with the evaluation board through the SDP Controller board.
The SDP Controller board is a separate list item in the ordering guide below (EVAL-SDP-CS1Z). If you have not previously purchased an SDP Controller board, please do so to ensure a full evaluation setup.

The SDP-S (EVAL-SDP-CS1Z) is the suggested SDP Controller board for this evaluation system. If you have previously purchased as SDP-B or SDP-S, you will not need to purchase another SDP Controller board. Evaluation boards designed for the SDP-S are compatible with the SDP-B controller also.
