Features and Benefits
- One AD6654 fully configured on the evaluation board.
- All necessary operating voltages are derived from on-board regulators. Single 6Vdc wall transformer included.
- Direct access to AD6654 parallel output data via on-board interface header.
- EVB can be configured into existing radio architectures for in-system evaluations.
- Includes a high-speed 64K FIFO (user upgradeable to 256K) capture buffer for the AD6654 filtered output data.
- Interfaces to PC via a standard USB cable.
The AD6654 Evaluation Kit provides a quick, turnkey solution for evaluating the many features and processing capabilities offered by the AD6654 Wideband IF to Baseband Receiver. The evaluation kit includes the assembled AD6654 PCB along with software for hardware control and filter design. The SoftCell Filter Design software can be used to design and evaluate various receiver filter configurations prior to hardware programming. The SoftCell Filter Design configurations can later be programmed directly into the AD6654 Receiver installed on the Evaluation Board (EVB). The EVB Control software features a user-friendly interface to the AD6654 EVB hardware to facilitate efficient control and data analysis for various receiver filter configurations.
