- Full featured evaluation board for the AD9146
The AD9146-M5375-EBZ connects to a digital pattern generator (DPG3) or a system demonstration platform (SDP-H1) to evaluate the AD9146 device. The AD9146 controls the AD9146-M5375-EBZ serial peripheral interface (SPI) port, which is obtained by downloading the ACE software and AD9146 plug-in (see the Software Setup section for additional information).
Via the SPI port, the device under test (DUT) and clock circuitry can be programmed into any of the various operating modes. To ease the subsystem evaluation, the AD9516-0 clock distribution chip and the ADL5375 quadrature modulator are designed into the AD9146-M5375-EBZ.
For full details on the AD9146, see the AD9146 data sheet, which must be used in conjunction with the user guide and the AD9146-M5375-EBZ evaluation board.
