Texas Instruments  AFE5801EVM

The AFE5801 includes an 8-channel Voltage-Controlled-Amplifier (VCA) with digital control and an 8-channel 65MSPS analog-to-digital converter (ADC). The 8 analog input signals will be processed by the analog front-end circuit of AFE5801; the outputs of the analog front-end will then be digitalized by the ADC within the device. In order to process the sample data the Texas Instruments' TSW1400EVM is recommended. The TSW1400EVM includes a High-Speed LVDS Deserializer, Demultiplexer, and Analysis System which provide a comprehensive set of hardware and user interface software to effectively evaluate the performance of AFE5801. The EVM kit includes the adapter card, User's Guide, software, and a USB cable. The TSW1400EVM evaluation board comes completely assembled.
