DAC3283 Dual-Channel, 16-Bit, 800-MSPS, 1x-4x Interpolating Digital-to-Analog Evaluation Module


Order now


The DAC3283EVM is a circuit board that allows designers to evaluate the performance of Texas Instruments' dual-channel 16-bit 800 MSPS DAC3283 digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with 8-byte wide DDR LVDS data input, integrated 2x/4x interpolation filters and exceptional linearity at high IFs. The EVM provides a flexible environment to test the DAC3283 under a variety of clock, and input conditions. For ease of use as a complete RF transmit solution the DAC3283EVM includes the CDCE62005 clock generator/jitter cleaner for clocking the DAC3283 as well as a TRF3704, a 50MHz to 6GHz quadrature modulator, for upconverting I/Q outputs from the DAC to real signals at RF.

The EVM can be used along with TSW1400EVM to perform a wide range of test procedures. The TSW1400EVM generates the test patterns which are fed to the DAC3283 through a 1.25 GSPS LVDS port. The DAC3283EVM clock chip can be used to synchronize the TSW1400EVM board to DAC3283EVM.

  • Comprehensive test capability for the DAC3283 for IF and RF outputs
  • Direct connection to TSW1400EVM signal generator
  • Includes CDCE62005 for clock generation or jitter cleaning
  • Includes TRF3704 for complete transmitter evaluation
  • Software support with a full featured GUI for easy testing
  • FMC-DAC-Adapter card to connect to a standard FMC interconnect header, a typical input on the latest Xilinx FPGA EVMs
