Product Details

The AD9680-1000EBZ/AD9234-1000EBZ/AD9690-1000EBZ is an evaluation board for the AD9680-1000 14-Bit, 1000MSPS JESD204B, Dual Analog-to-Digital Converter/ AD9234-1000 14-BIT, 1000 MSPS JESD204B, Dual Analog to Digital Converter/ AD9690-1000 14-Bit, 500 MSPS, 1 GSPS JESD204B, Analog-to-Digital Converter. This reference 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 ADS7-V2EBZ data capture card, allowing users to download captured data for analysis. The Visual Analog software package, which is used to interface with the device's hardware, allows users to download captured data for analysis with a user-friendly graphical interface. The SPI Controller software package is also compatible with this hardware, and allows the user to access the SPI programmable features of the AD9680/AD9234/AD9690. The user guide wiki provides documentation and instructions to configure the device for performance evaluation in the lab.

The AD9680/AD9234/AD9690 data sheet provides additional information related to device configuration and performance, and should be consulted when using the evaluation board. All documents and Visual Analog and SPI Controller are available at the High Speed ADC Evaluation Boards page. For additional information or questions, please email highspeed.converters@analog.com
