The ADS8-V3 Carrier Card was developed to support the evaluation of Analog Devices High Speed Data Converters with serial line rates up to 16Gbps. This Wiki site provides a high level overview of the platform. The ADS8-V3 is intended to be used only with specified Analog Devices Evaluation Boards. The ADS8-V3 is not intended to be used as a general purpose development platform, and no support is available for standalone operation. The ADS8-V3 may contain hardware features not fully productized or supported by our default customer evaluation configurations. Please refer to Xilinx and its approved distributors for general purpose FPGA Development Kits.

When connected to a specified Analog Devices high speed converter evaluation board, the ADS8-V3EBZ works as a data generation and acquisition board. Designed to support the highest speed JESD204B converters, the FPGA on the ADS8-V3EBZ acts as the data and control interface. A typical test setup is shown below.
