Please NOTE: The DPG2 Data Pattern Generator platform is nearing its end-of-life and is not recommended for new designs with the AD9789. However, the DPG2 is required to properly power-up the AD9789 EVB - we are aware of this issue and are actively working on a resolution. In the interim, the remaining stocked DPG2 units are available for purchase while supplies last - for inquiries, please contact ADI's Central Applications or your local sales/distributor. Our deepest apologies for any inconvenience during this transition!
The Data Pattern Generator (DPG) is a bench-top instrument for driving vectors into high-speed digital-to-analog converters. The DPG connects to a USB on a PC and allows a user to download a vector from the PC into the internal memory of the DPG. Once downloaded, the vector can be played out to an attached evaluation board for a specific DAC at full speed. This allows for rapid evaluation of the DAC with both generic and custom-generated test data.
