The ADC32RF5xEVM is an evaluation module (EVM) designed to evaluate the ADC32RF5x family of high-speed, JESD204B interface ADCs. The EVM includes an onboard clocking solution (LMK04832), transformer-coupled analog inputs, full power solution, and easy-to-use software GUI and USB interface. The following features apply to this EVM:

  • Transformer-coupled signal input network allowing a single-ended signal source from 30 MHz to 3000 MHz.
  • LMK04832 system clock generator that generates field-programmable gate array (FPGA) reference clocks for the high-speed serial interface.

The ADC32RF5xEVM is designed to work seamlessly with TI's TSW14J58 EVM JESD204B/C data capture/pattern generator card, through the High Speed Data Converter Pro (HSDC Pro) software tool for high-speed data converter evaluation. It is also designed to work with many of the developments kits from leading FPGA vendors that contain an FMC or FMC+ connector.
