* Please note the ADS7-V1EBZ is obsolete and no longer manufactured or supported by Analog Devices. All High Speed ADC Products previously using the ADS7-V1EBZ have migrated to the newer ADS7-V2EBZ Evaluation Platform *


The ADS7-V1 Evaluation Board was developed to support the evaluation of Analog Devices high speed A/D converters, D/A converters and Transceivers with JESD204B bit rates up to 12.5 Gbps. This Wiki site provides a high level overview of the platform. In addition, each use case of the board has its own section (e.g. Using the ADS7-V1 for HIgh Speed A/D Converter Evaluation). The ADS7-V1 is intended to be used only with specified Analog Devices Evaluation Boards. The ADS7-V1 is not intended to be used as a development platform, and no support is available for standalone operation. Please refer to Xilinx and its approved distribuitors for FPGA Development Kits.

Using the ADS7-V1EBZ to evaluate High Speed A/D Converters


When connected to a specified Analog Devices high speed adc evaluation board, the ADS7-V1 works as a data acquistion board. Designed to support the highest speed JESD204B A/D Converters, the FPGA on the ADS7-V1 acts as the data receiver, while the ADC is the data transmitter. A typical test setup is shown below.
