Texas Instruments  AFE5805EVM

The AFE5805EVM provides a convenient platform to evaluate the AFE5805. The AFE5805 is a complete analog front-end device designed for ultrasound systems. It consists of eight-channels, including a low-noise amplifier (LNA), voltage controlled attenuator (VCA), programmable gain amplifier (PGA), low-pass filter (LPF), and a 12 bit, 50 MSPS analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with LVDS data outputs. In the event the user does not already have a method to attach to and analyze the data from the LVDS data stream, a deserializer board is offered. This board, the TSW1400EVM, directly connects to the AFE5805EVM and provides the data in parallel form for all eight channels simultaneously. The EVM kit includes the adapter card, User's Guide, software, and a USB cable. The TSW1400EVM evaluation board comes completely assembled.
