This evaluation board kit supports the AD9865 and AD9866 MxFE™ broadband family. Since these MxFEs are highly integrated and software configurable, it is recommended that users familiarize themselves with the operation and performance capabilities of these devices using an evaluation board kit. The evaluation kit consists of a PCB, software and documentation to facilitate its test bench analysis. Besides allowing independent testing of the AD9865/66 Tx and Rx signal paths, the PCB also supports a complete analog front-end (AFE) reference design for power-line modems. The digital interface for the PCB is highly flexible supporting half- or full-duplex interfaces to test equipment or DSP, FPGA, or ASIC development boards.
Technical notes are available in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF).
