 The AD9747 Evaluation Board connects to the Analog Devices Digital Pattern Generator (DPG2, PN: ADI HSC-DAC-DPG-BZ;​ or DPG3, PN: AD –DPG3) or System Demonstration Platform (SDP-H1, PN: EVAL-SDP-CH1Z) to allow for quick evaluation of the AD9747. The DPG2 or SDP-H1 allows the user to create many types of digital vectors and transmit these at speed to the AD9747 in any of the AD9747 operating modes. The AD9747 evaluation board is configured over USB from a panel within the DPGDownloader software. The AD9747 Evaluation Board connects to the Analog Devices Digital Pattern Generator (DPG2, PN: ADI HSC-DAC-DPG-BZ;​ or DPG3, PN: AD –DPG3) or System Demonstration Platform (SDP-H1, PN: EVAL-SDP-CH1Z) to allow for quick evaluation of the AD9747.

-===== SOFTWARE INSTALLATION =====+===== ACE 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. This will install DPGDownloader (for loading vectors into the DPG2) and the AD9747/​6/​5/​3 SPI Controller application. However, ACE, a newer evaluation software from ADI, is the preferred evaluation software over the legacy SPI control graphical user interface (GUI). ACE can be downloaded from the ACE website at www.analog.com/​ace. The ACE plug-in for the evaluation board, which is also required, is available for download on the AD9747/​6/​5/​3 eval webpage in the software section at http://​www.analog.com/​en/​design-center/​evaluation-hardware-and-software/​evaluation-boards-kits/​EVAL-AD9747.html#​eb-relatedsoftware .  The DAC Software Suite plus AD9747/​6/​5/​3 Update should be installed on the PC prior to connecting the hardware to the PC.

-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.+
