Texas Instruments  DS125DF410EVM

The DS125DF410EVM evaluation board allows the user to examine the advanced signal conditioning capabilities of the DS125DF410 and DS125RT410 devices using SMAs. The board is controlled by a PC using a USB port and the SigCon Architect GUI.

In order to use the SigCon Architect GUI to control the device, a DPS-DONGLE-EVM board must be used to interface the USB port of the PC to the SMBus pins on board the evaluation board. This DPS-DONGLE-EVM adapter board is not kitted with the DS125DF410EVM.

To acquire the DPS-DONGLE-EVM board, please submit a request for purchase to dps_marketing@list.ti.com.
