Analog Devices Inc. EVAL-AD4696FMCZ Evaluation Board

Analog Devices Inc. EVAL-AD4696FMCZ Evaluation Board is designed to demonstrate the performance of the AD4696 Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) and provide access to its many configuration options via an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI). The AD4696 is a 16-channel, 16-bit, 1 MSPS, multiplexed, Successive Approximation Register (SAR) ADC designed to enable high-performance data acquisition of multiple signals in a small form factor. The AD4696 employs Easy Drive™ technology and on-chip channel sequencing that simplify hardware and software designs and allow it to fit into a variety of space-constrained, multi-channel applications.

The EVAL-AD4696FMCZ allows users to quickly evaluate the performance of the AD4696 with no or minimal hardware modifications. The hardware includes two externally-driven analog input channels for evaluating AC performance and 14 channels with DC levels generated onboard for evaluating DC performance and settling parameters. The externally-driven channels have configurable drive circuitry and can interface with precision signal generators via SMA connectors.

The Analog Devices Inc. EVAL-ADAQ23875 Evaluation Board is designed to work in conjunction with the EVAL-SDP-CH1Z High-Speed Controller Board. The EVAL-SDP-CH1Z connects to a PC allowing device configuration via a register map view and easy to use GUI. The software also enables performing analog-to-digital conversions and provides time and frequency domain analysis tools for quick evaluation of the AD4696.
