Features and Benefits
- Full featured evaluation board for the AD9217 device family.
The AD9217-10GEBZ and AD9217-6GEBZ supports the 10Gsps and 6Gsps models of the AD9217. The AD9217 is a single 12-bit, 10.25 GSPS RF analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with a 6.5 GHz input bandwidth. It has been optimized to support high dynamic range frequency and time domain applications requiring wide instantaneous bandwidth and low code error rates (CER). The AD9217 features a low-latency high speed parallel CML output interface that supports full bandwidth operation with compatible FPGA/ASIC receivers. This Preliminary Evaluation design provides all of the support circuitry required to operate the ADC in its various modes and configurations. It is designed to interface directly with the ADS8-V1EBZ FPGA-based data capture card, allowing users to download captured data for analysis. The device control and subsequent data analysis can be performed using the ACE software package.
