Product Details

The EVAL-AD7380-4FMCZ and EVAL-AD7383-4FMCZ are full featured evaluation boards that evaluate all features of the AD7380-4 and AD7383-4 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 EVALSDP-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 AD7380-4, AD7381-4, AD7389-4, AD7384-4, and AD7383-4 are provided in the AD7380-4, AD7381-4, AD7389-4, AD7384-4, and AD7383-4 data sheets. Consult these specifications in conjunction with this 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-AD7380-4FMCZ can be used to evaluate the AD7389-4 and AD7381-4. The EVAL-AD7383-4FMCZ can be used to evaluate the AD7384-4. 14-bit ADCs like the AD7381-4 and AD7384-4 have a lower number of SCLK cycles to clock out the conversion result. Refer to the product data sheet for information about the serial interface and for the required number of serial clock (SCLK) reading conversion results.
