Description for the TSW14J10EVM
The Texas Instruments (TI) TSW14J10 Evaluation Module (EVM) allows users the capability to evaluate TI JESD204B family of high-speed converters using existing FPGA vendor development platforms with the TI High Speed Data Converter Pro Graphic User Interface (HSDC Pro GUI). This low cost solution works on most FPGA development boards that contain a High Pin Count (HPC) FPGA to Mezzanine Card (FMC) connector which has the FPGA JTAG interface routed to this connector or to a separate JTAG connector.
For those developing their own hardware with TI data converters and Xilinx FPGAs, you will need to request the Xilinx JESD204B IP from Xilinx.
