The EVAL-AD7380FMCZ and EVAL-AD7381FMCZ are full featured evaluation boards that evaluate all features of the AD7380 and AD7381 analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The evaluation boards can be controlled by the EVAL-SDP-CH1Z via the 160-way system demonstration platform (SDP) connector, J4. The EVAL-SDP-CH1Z board controls the evaluation boards through the USB port of a PC using the Analysis, Control, Evaluation (ACE) software, which is available for download from the ACE software page.
Complete specifications for the AD7380 and AD7381 are provided in the AD7380/AD7381 data sheet. Consult these specifications in conjunction with the user guide when using the evaluation boards. Full details on the EVAL-SDP-CH1Z are available on the SDP-H1 product page. The comprehensive ACE user guide is available on the ACE software page.
The EVAL-AD7380FMCZ can be used to evaluate the AD4680 and AD4681. The AD4680 and AD4681 have slower throughput rates (at 1 MSPS and 500 kSPS, respectively) than the AD7380. The throughput can be adjusted to fit for AD4680 and AD4681 by adjusting the clock speed and the sampling frequency.
Figure 1 in the user guide shows the typical setup of the EVAL-AD7380FMCZ board. The setup for the EVAL-AD7381FMCZ board is the same as the EVAL-AD7380FMCZ setup.
