Hardware Setup

This section describes the overall system setup for the EVM. A computer runs the software that provides an interface to the DAC63204EVM through the onboard controller.

The USB connection generates 5 V of power for use as the DAC supply voltage (VDD). The onboard controller generates 3.3 V of power for the input/output (IO) signals generated by the controller. These IO signals are level translated to the VDD voltage of the DAC. Figure 2-3 displays the system hardware setup.
