The HMCAD1520 is a versatile high performance low power analog-to-digital converter (ADC), with interleaving High Speed Modes to increase sampling rate. Integrated Cross Point Switches activate the input selected by the user.
In Single Channel Mode, one of the four inputs can be selected as valid input to the single ADC channel. In Dual Channel Mode, any two of the four inputs can be selected to each ADC channel. In Quad Channel Mode and Precision Mode, any input can be assigned to any ADC channel. An internal, low jitter and programmable clock divider makes it possible to use a single clock source for all operational modes.
The HMCAD1520 is based on a proprietary structure, and employs internal reference circuitry, a serial control interface and a serial LVDS output data. Data and frame synchronization clocks are supplied for data capture at the receiver. Internal digital fine gain can be set separately for each ADC to calibrate for gain errors.
Various modes and configuration settings can be applied to the ADC through the serial control interface (SPI). each channel can be powered down independently and output data format can be selected through this interface. A full chip idle mode can be set by a single external pin.
Register settings determine the exact function of this pin. HMCAD1520 is designed to interface easily with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) from several vendors.

- Spectrum Analyzers
- Diversity Receivers

The HMCAD1520-EBZ (HMCAD1511-EBZ) supports the HMCAD1520 (HMCAD1511), a 12bit (8bit), 640MSPS (1GSPS) multi-channel analog-to-digital converter. The board uses LTM8078 switching regulator and ADM7154 LDO as its power supply and uses LTC6419 as an optional high-speed ADC driver. The board is designed to interface directly with FPGA development boards with FMC (Vita57.1) connector.
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 EVAL-SDP-CH1Z data capture card, allowing users to download captured data for analysis. The device control and subsequent data analyses can now be done using the ACE software package.
The SDP-H1 is a high speed controller board for the System Demonstration Platform (SDP). The SDP-H1 has a Xilinx® Spartan 6 and an ADSP-BF527 processor with connectivity to the PC through a USB 2.0 high speed port. Controller boards allow for the configuration and capture of data on daughter boards from the PC via USB.
The SDP-H1 has a FMC low pin count ( LPC) connector with full differential LVDS and singled ended LVCMOS support. It also has the 120 pin connector, found on the SDP-B which exposes the Blackfin processors peripherals. This connector provides a configurable Serial, Parallel I2C and SPI and GPIO communications lines to the attached daughter board. The PC side software application for controlling the attached daughter board is provided with each of the daughter product evaluation boards or Circuits from the Lab reference Circuits.
The System Demonstration Platform is a collection of controller boards, interposer boards, and daughter boards, used for easy, low cost evaluation of ADI components and reference circuits. For a general overview of the entire platform visit the System Demonstration Platform homepage www.analog.com/sdp
See the full list of compatible Product Evaluation Boards and Circuits from the Lab Reference Circuit Boards that require the SDP-B. All SDP-S compatible daughter boards can be used with the SDP-B.
