- ​===Introduction=== 
-The AD9747/​6/​5/​3 Evaluation Board connects to the Analog Devices Digital Pattern Generator (DPG) or System Demonstration Platform (SDP-H1, PN: EVAL-SDP-CH1Z) to allow for quick evaluation of the AD9747/​6/​5/​3. The DPG or SDP-H1 allows the user to create many types of digital vectors and transmit these at speed to the AD9747/​6/​5/​3 in any of the AD9747/​6/​5/​3 operating modes. The AD9747/​6/​5/​3 evaluation board is configured over USB with accompanying PC software.

-===Software Installation=== 
-The DAC Software Suite plus AD9747/​6/​5/​3 Update should be installed on the PC prior to connecting the hardware to the PC. The DAC Software Suite is included on the Evaluation Board CD, or can be downloaded from the DPG web site at https://​wiki.analog.com/​resources/​eval/​dpg/​dacsoftwaresuite.

-===Hardware Setup=== 
-Once the DPGDownloader software is installed, the hardware can be connected as shown below. A single 5V power supply powers the evaluation board. The power supply should be able to source up to 2A to cover all the board’s operating conditions. A low jitter clock source (< 0.5psec RMS) should be used for the DACCLK. A sinusoidal clock output level of 0 to 4dBm is optimal. By default, the DAC outputs are connected to SMA connectors for evaluation. Both DAC outputs are available. Later in the document, the modifications for observing the modulator output and different clocking options will be shown. ​ 
-• The evaluation board plugs directly into the DPG2 or DPG3. 
-The PC connects to both the DPG2 and the evaluation board through USB cables as showing in Figure 1 and Figure 2  
-• The evaluation board plugs into the AD-DAC-FMC-ADP adapter board that plugs into the SDP-H1. 
-The PC connects to both the SDP-H1 and the evaluation board through USB cables as shown in Figure 3 and Figure 4.

 Power up the DPG and connect the USB cable to the PC. Next, run the DPGDownloader Software. A shortcut will be installed to your Start menu during the installation of the DAC Software Suite. To begin, click on the DPGDownloader shortcut in your Programs menu, typically at Start > Programs > Analog Devices > DPG > DPGDownloader. Power up the DPG and connect the USB cable to the PC.
