Evaluation Board for DACs

Evaluation Board for DACs

Analog Devices has released the AD9173 evaluation board to test the functionality of its AD9173 digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The board comes with an FMC connector that complies with the Vita 57.1 standard. The FMC board uses a mini-circuit balun on the DAC output.

The ADS7-V2 field programmable gate array (FPGA) board serves as a digital pattern generator, data source and power supply for the DAC board.
