Design files

Overview

This reference design is a guide to the schematics and layout for the system designer using a GSPS ADC in their system. Use this reference design along with the datasheet — the datasheet is always the final authority. Also, the ADC1xDxxxx(RF)RB Reference Board provides a useful reference design. All design source files for the Reference Board as well as the CAD/CAE symbols for the ADC are available on the product web page or TI-Designs for download. For the purpose of this document, ADC or GSPS ADC refers to the ADC12D1800RF, ADC12D1600RF, ADC12D1000RF, ADC12D800RF, ADC12D500RF, ADC12D1800, ADC12D1600, ADC12D1000, ADC10D1500, ADC10D1000, ADC12D1600QML, and ADC10D1000QML.

Features
  • Analog Input, clock input and Power design issues are discussed
  • Layout concerns on synchronisation of multiple devices
  • Understand the key care abouts of GSPS ADC schematic and layout design
  • Examples are provided in the form of the design layout files

A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
