This page provides information for the Filter Wizard evaluation board system, for use with designs created in Analog Filter Wizard - www.analog.com/filterwizard. For other active filter-related evaluation boards, please visit Evaluation Board for Active Filters.
The Filter Wizard evaluation board system consists of a motherboard and several daughterboards. These boards are shipped unpopulated – use BOM and assembly information generated in Analog Filter Wizard to order components and assemble complete filter design.
The motherboard/daughterboard system gives you the following advantages:
- Change stage order quickly – For example, to evaluate tradeoffs between various amplifiers (noise performance vs. input range, etc)
- Use different stage types in the same design – There are several daughterboard models to support different types of stages. These daughterboards can be mixed-and-matched in the same design. For example, combining stages that utilize both single and dual package op amps. Also, combine a low-pass and a high pass stage to create a band-pass filter.
- Measure individual stage performance easily – Single stages can be debugged in isolation.
Each daughterboard order contains boards for 4 stages.
