The AD9726 evaluation board provides a platform for evaluating the performance of the device. To operate the board, the user must apply power, a clock source, a digital data source, and be able to observe the DAC output on either a spectrum analyzer or an oscilloscope. A low jitter sine or square wave clock will work well as a source. The evaluation board comes with software which allows the user to program the SPI port. Via the SPI port, the DUT can be programmed into any of its various operating modes.
