JESD204 Interface Framework

Integrated JESD204 software framework for rapid system-level development and optimization

Analog Devices’ JESD204 Interface Framework is a system-level software and HDL package targeted at simplifying system development by providing a performance optimized IP framework that integrates complex hardware such as high speed converters, transceivers and clocks with various FPGA platforms.

The JESD204 Interface Framework provides an open platform that includes dynamic configuration capabilities to allow for system changes during operation and constraint handling to support built-in component models such as clocks and converters. These capabilities improve system-level integration and proof-of-concept testing leading to faster time-to-market.
