The DAC12DL3200 evaluation module (EVM) is a platform for evaluating the DAC12DL3200, which is a very-low-latency, dual-channel, 12-bit, RF-sampling digital-to-analog converter (DAC), capable of operating at sampling rates up to 3.2 GSPS in dual-channel mode or 6.4 GSPS in single-channel mode.
DAC12DL3200 can transmit signal bandwidths beyond 2 GHz at carrier frequencies approaching 8 GHz when using multiple Nyquist output modes. DAC12DL3200EVM device input data is transmitted over a high-speed low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) interface.
An LMX2592 clock synthesizer and LMK04828 JESD204B clock generator are included on the EVM and can be configured to provide an ultra-low-jitter DAC device clock and SYSREF for a complete clocking solution.
DAC12DL3200, LMX2592, and LMK04828 are controlled through an easy-to-use software GUI to enable quick configuration for a variety of uses.
DAC12DL3200EVM connects directly to the TSW14DL3200EVM pattern-generator hardware via the high-speed FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) connector. High-speed data converter pro software (DATACONVERTERPRO-SW) is available for pattern generation when using the TSW14DL3200EVM.
