 ===== Introduction ===== ===== Introduction =====
 +The AD9119-CBLTX-EBZ and AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ are built from the same printed circuit board, with the only difference being which DAC device is loaded, the AD9119 or the AD9129. This Quick Start Guide will describe the set-up of the AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ,​ but the steps apply equally to setting up the AD9119-CBLTX-EBZ. The slight differences in performance between the two boards are documented in the data sheet, and are related to the 11-bit resolution of the AD9119. Thus, noise spectral density and some ACLR measurements are affected, and the AD9119 performance is lower than the corresponding performance of the AD9129. For ease of reading, only the AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ will be mentioned for the rest of the document.

 The AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ connects to a DPG2 to allow for quick evaluation of the AD9129, a high-speed, RF Digital to Analog converter (RF DAC). The DPG2 automatically formats the data and sends it to the AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ,​ simplifying evaluation of the device. The Evaluation Board (EVB) runs from +5 volt and +8 volt supplies. Figure 2 is an image of the top side of the AD9129 EVB. The AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ evaluation board is intended for evaluation purposes only with no implied guarantee of performance or reliability. This evaluation board was solely developed to aid our customers in the development of a cable transmit solution and not intended to be directly leveraged into any final product. The AD9129-CBLTX-EBZ connects to a DPG2 to allow for quick evaluation of the AD9129, a high-speed, RF Digital to Analog converter (RF DAC).
