Overview

The TSW1406EVM is a low cost pattern generator circuit board used to evaluate some of Texas Instruments’ (TI) most popular high speed digital-to-analog converters (DAC).

The TSW1406EVM supports a high speed LVDS bus capable of receiving 16-bit samples at 1.0 GSPS. The platform supports a 64k sample depth with the ability to collect data on up to eight channels simultaneously.

The TSW1406EVM replaces the TSW3100EVM in a smaller size and significantly reduced cost. Additionally, the TSW1406EVM features a high speed LatticeECP3 FPGA from Lattice Semiconductor. It’s flexible prototyping allows it to directly interface to many of TI’s LVDS input DACs. For more information, such as Lattice FPGA HDL interface source code, please visit Lattice Semiconductor

The TSW1406EVM utilizes an intuitive/easy-to-use GUIsoftware package. This software is compatible with the entire TSW1400 family, making for an easy transition across different toolsets. For easy setup and operation, the TSW1406EVM needs only one cable running to the PC. It draws power and transmits data over its mini-USB connection.

The TSW1406EVM is compatible with all DACs listed in the Related Devices section of this website. If there is any question as to whether or not the TSW1406 supports the device of interest, please ask in the e2e forum for High Speed Converters
