Key Document


The Texas Instruments TSW14J56 Evaluation Module (EVM) is a next generation of pattern generator and data capture card used to evaluate performances of the new Texas Instruments (TI) JESD204B family of high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and digital-to-analog converters (DAC).

Populated with an Arria V GZ device and using Altera’s JESD204B IP solution, the TSW14J56 can be dynamically configurable to support all lanes speeds from 600Mbps to 12.5Gbps, from 1 to 8 lanes, 1 to 16 converters, and 1 to 4 octets per frame.

Together with the accompanying High Speed Data Converter Pro Graphic User Interface (GUI), it is a complete system that captures and evaluates data samples from ADC EVM’s and generates and sends desired test patterns to DAC EVM’s. 

  • Quickly evaluate JESD204B DAC and ADC performance using TI High Speed Data Converter Pro software
  • Direct connection to all TI JESD204B High Speed Data Converter EVM’s using an FMC standard connector
  • Quarter rate DDR3 controllers supporting up to 800MHz DDR3 operation
  • JESD RX and TX IP cores with 10 routed transceiver channels
  • Many available general purpose IO’s (status signals, SPI interface, etc.) between the FPGA and the FMC connector
  • SPI/JTAG reconfigurable JESD core parameters: L,M,K,F,HD,S etc.
  • Support for SUBCLASS 0 and 1 operation
  • Dynamically reconfigurable transceiver data rate using HSDC Pro software.
    • Operating range from 0.611Gbps to 12.5Gbps
  • An onboard high-speed USB 3.0 to parallel converter bridges the FPGA interface to the host PC and GUI
  • 32 Gb DDR3 SDRAM (total of 2G 16-bit samples).
