This Application Note describes the evaluation board for the AD7899 A/D converter. The AD7899 is a fast, low-power, 14-bit ADC which operates from a single 5 V supply. The part incorporates a 2.2µS successive approximation ADC, an on chip track/hold amplifier, a 2.5 V reference, on-chip clock oscillator, signal conditioning circuitry and a high speed parallel interface. Full data on the AD7899 is available in the AD7899 data sheet available from Analog Devices and should be consulted in conjunction with this Application Note when using the Evaluation Board.
On-board components include an AD780, which can be configured as a +2.5 V or +3.0 V ultra high precision bandgap preference, an AD845, two 74HC541 buffer/line drivers and a 74HC04 inverter. There are various link options which are explained in detail on page 2.
Interfacing to this board is through a 96-way connector. This 96-way connector is compatible with the Evaluation Board Controller which is also available from Analog Devices.
External sockets are provided for the CONVST input, CLKIN input, BUSY output, VREF input, VDRIVE input and the VIN input.
