High speed ADC evaluation board and ADC data sheet
PC running Windows 98 (2nd ed.), Windows 2000,
Windows Me, or Windows XP
Latest version of ADC Analyzer
USB 2.0 port recommended (USB 1.1-compatible)
Easy to Set Up.
Connect the included power supply and
signal sources to the two evaluation boards. Then connect
to the PC and evaluate the performance instantly.
ADC Analyzer supports virtual ADC
evaluation using ADI proprietary behavioral modeling
technology. This allows rapid comparison between multiple
ADCs, with or without hardware evaluation boards. For more
information, see AN-737 at
USB Port Connection to PC.
PC interface is a USB 2.0
connection (1.1-compatible) to the PC. A USB cable is
provided in the kit.
32 kB FIFO.
The FIFO stores data from the ADC for processing.
A pin-compatible FIFO family is used for easy upgrading.
Up to 133 MSPS Encode Rate on Each Channel.
channel ADCs with encode rates up to 133 MSPS can be used
with the FIFO board. Multichannel and demultiplexed output
ADCs can also be used with the FIFO board with clock rates
up to 266 MSPS.
Supports ADC with Serial Port Interface or SPI.
include a feature set that can be changed via the SPI. The FIFO
supports these SPI-driven features through the existing USB
connection to the computer without additional cabling needed.
The high speed ADC FIFO evaluation kit includes the latest
version of ADC Analyzer and a buffer memory board to capture
blocks of digital data from the Analog Devices high speed
analog-to-digital converter (ADC) evaluation boards. The FIFO
board is connected to the PC through a USB port and is used
with ADC Analyzer to quickly evaluate the performance of high
speed ADCs. Users can view an FFT for a specific analog input
and encode rate to analyze SNR, SINAD, SFDR, and harmonic
The evaluation kit is easy to set up. Additional equipment needed
includes an Analog Devices high speed ADC evaluation board,
a signal source, and a clock source. Once the kit is connected
and powered, the evaluation is enabled instantly on the PC.
Two versions of the FIFO are available. The HSC-ADC-EVALB-
DC is used with multichannel ADCs and converters with demulti-
plexed digital outputs. The HSC-ADC-EVALB-SC evaluation
board is used with single-channel ADCs. See
Table 1 to choose
the FIFO appropriate for your high speed ADC evaluation
