On the rising edge of CNV, the ADC samples an analog input, IN+, between 0 V and REF with respect to the ground sense, IN−. The ADCs feature a very high sampling rate turbo mode (TURBO is high) and a reduced power normal mode (TURBO is low) for low power applications where the power is scaled with the throughput. A full description of these products is available in their respective data sheets and should be consulted when using this evaluation board.+

 + 
 +===== Grounding ​=====
 The evaluation board ground plane is separated into two sections: a plane for the digital interface circuitry and an analog plane for the analog input and external reference circuitry. To attain high resolution performance,​ the board was designed to ensure that all digital ground return paths do not cross the analog ground return paths by connecting the planes together directly under the converter. ​ The evaluation board ground plane is separated into two sections: a plane for the digital interface circuitry and an analog plane for the analog input and external reference circuitry.

 +===== Analog Inputs===== 
 +The analog inputs to the evaluation board are J1, J2, and SMB (push on). These inputs are buffered with dedicated amplifier circuitry (A2, A3, and discretes) to allow configuration changes such as positive or negative gain, input range scaling, filtering, addition of a dc component, and use of different op amps and supplies. The analog input amplifiers are set as unity-gain buffers at the factory. The supplies are selectable with solder pads and are set for the +7 V to −5 V ranges.\\ 
 +  
 +The default configuration sets both A2 and A3 at midscale generated from either a buffered reference voltage divider or the internal reference of the ADC. \\ 
 + 
 +The evaluation board is factory configured for providing either a single-ended path or a fully differential path. Because the AD7986 is differential,​ both inputs and amplifier circuits are used to buffer the IN+ and IN- inputs of the ADCs. For the AD7944 and AD7985 evaluation boards, only the J2, A3, and associated circuitry is used in the path. \\ 
 + 
 +For dynamic performance,​ an FFT test can be executed by applying a very low distortion ac source. For low frequency testing, an audio precision source can be used directly because the outputs on these are isolated. Set the audio precision outputs for balanced and floating. Although different sources can be used, most are single ended and use a fixed output resistance. \\

 + 
 + {{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-009.jpg?​300 |}} 
 +**//Figure 9. Install Complete//​** 
 + 
 +After installing the software and drivers, power the CED board and connect it to the PC USB 2.0 port, at which time the **Welcome to the Found New Hardware Wizard** initiates.  
 + {{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-010.jpg?​300 |}} 
 +**//Figure 10. Found New Hardware//​** 
 + 
 +When installed properly, the hardware wizard displays the following message, shown in Figure 11, signaling that the evaluation board software is setup and ready to use. 
 +{{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-011.jpg?​300 |}} 
 +**//Figure 11. Evaluation Board Software Installation Complete//​** 
 + 
 +On some PCs, the **Found New hardware Wizard** may show up again and, if so, follow the same procedure to install it properly. Use the **Device Manager**, shown in Figure 12, to verify that the driver was installed correctly. 
 +{{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-012.jpg?​300 |}} 
 +**//Figure 12. Device Manager Verification//​** 
 + 
 +=== Troubleshooting the Installation === 
 + 
 +If the driver was not installed properly, Windows does not recognize the CEDIZ board and the Device Manager menu displays a question mark for **Other devices**.  
 +{{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-013.jpg?​300 |}} 
 +**//Figure 13. Device Manager Menu Displaying Unrecognized Device//​** 
 + 
 +The USB device can be opened to view its uninstalled properties, as shown in Figure 14.  
 +{{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-014.jpg?​300 |}} 
 +//**Figure 14. USB Device Uninstalled Properties**//​ 
 + 
 +The most usual reason for uninstalled properties is caused by the installation of the software and drivers by a user without administrative privileges. If this is the case, log on as an administrator with full privileges and reinstall the software. 
 + 
 + 
 +==== Running the Evaluation Software ==== 
 + 
 +The evaluation board includes software for analyzing the AD7944, AD7985, and AD7986. The [[adi>​en/​analog-to-digital-converters/​ad-converters/​eval-ced/​products/​product.html|EVAL-CED1Z]] is required when using the software. Use the software to perform the following tests:\\

 +  * Decimation (digital filtering).\\ 
 +  *  
 +The software is located at <​local_drive>:​\Program Files\Analog Devices\PulSAR ADC Evaluation Software\Eval PulSAR CED.exe. A shortcut is also added to the Windows **Start** menu under **Analog Devices PulSAR Evaluation Software, Eval PulSAR CED**.  
 +To run the software, select the program from either location. 
 + 
 +==== Running the ADC Analysis Software ==== 
 +The evaluation board includes software for analyzing the [[adi>​AD7944]],​ [[adi>​AD7985]],​ and [[adi>​AD7986]] ADCs. The [[adi>​en/​analog-to-digital-converters/​ad-converters/​eval-ced/​products/​product.html|EVAL-CED1Z]] is required when using the ADC analysis software. Use the software to perform the following tests:\\ 
 + 
 +  * Histogram for determining code transition noise (dc). 
 +  * FFT for SNR, SNR and SINAD, THD, and SFDR.\\ 
 +  *  
 +Refer to Figure 15 to Figure 20 for additional details and features of the software.\\ 
 +  
 +The ADC analysis software is located at C:\Program Files\Analog Devices\ PulSAR ADC Evaluation Software\Eval PulSAR CED.exe. A shortcut is also added to the Windows **Start** menu under **Analog Devices PulSAR ADC Evaluation Software, Eval PulSAR CED.** To run the software, select the program from either location. 
 + 
 +===== Software Operation ===== 
 +The following steps detail the operation of the software located in the default directory:​ 
 +<​local_drive>:​\Program Files\Analog Devices\PulSAR ADC Evaluation Software\Eval PulSAR CED.exe, which opens the **Raw Data Capture** window. 
 + 
 +{{ :​resources:​eval:​10387-015.jpg?​700 |}} 
 +//**Figure 15. Setup Screen**//​ 
 + 
 +  - To start the software, click the arrow in the upper left corner of the screen. When running, the arrow icon is displayed as shown in the area in Figure 15 marked with the Number 1.     
 +  - Select the device to be evaluated (see the area in Figure 15 marked with the Number 2). 
 +  - Set the controls (see the area in Figure 15 marked with the Number 3) for the following:​ 
 +    - **Sample Frequency:​** Enter the sample rate in kHz. Units can be used such as 10k (case sensitive) for 10,000,000 Hz or 10 MSPS. 
 +    - **Input Range:** Because the ADCs have a variable input range depending on the reference voltage, select the correct one (4.096 V or 5 V) to display the correct LSB size. 
 +    - **Interface Mode:** Options for using or not using the busy mode. In busy mode, the SDO can be monitored to see the actual conversion time (BUSY high to low transition). 
 +    - **Turbo CTRL:** Select the fastest mode, turbo mode, or normal mode. Note that the throughput must be manually changed when changing modes. ​  
 +    - **CNV Mode:** Selects between continuous (Cont.) or burst conversion modes. In continuous mode, the ADC is continuously converting. In burst mode, the ADC does not continuously convert. 
 +    - **Coding:** For the AD7986, **2 compl** must be selected in the **Coding** field because the ADC result is always twos complement. For the AD7985 and AD7944, binary is set because the ADC output is straight binary.  
 +  - Use the controls shown in the area of Figure 15 marked with the Number 4 for functions such saving, printing, help, and so forth. These functions ​are also accessible from the **File** menu. 
 +    - **Save (F5):** In the **Save** **(F5)** pull-down menu, there are several options as follows: 
 +      - **LV Config:** selects the LabVIEW® configuration,​ which allows the current configuration to be saved to a filename.dat file. This option is useful when changing many of the default controls. To load the saved configuration,​ click **Load Previous Configuration** located above **Save (F5)**. 
 +      - **Html:** saves the current screen shot to an html file. 
 +      - **Spreadsheet:​** saves the current data displayed in the chart in a tab delimited spreadsheet. Raw ADC data includes time domain (in V or code), FFT, or decimated (in dB).  
 +    - **Stop (F10):** Click **Stop (F10)** to stop running the software. Likewise, clicking the stop sign icon, on the top menu bar also stops the software.  
 +    - **RESET:** click **RESET** to reset the CED capture board.

 +====== Troubleshooting ====== 
 +  
 +===== Software Tips ===== 
 + 
 +  * Always install the software from the CD or the Analog Devices website prior to connecting hardware to the PC.  
 +  * Always allow the installation to fully complete (the software is a two part installation:​ the ADC software and the drivers). The installation may require a restart of the PC. 
 +  * When you first plug in the board via the USB cable, allow the **New Found Hardware Wizard** to run completely. Though this may take some time, it is required prior to starting the software.  
 +  * Where the board does not appear to be functioning,​ ensure the following: that the ADC evaluation board is connected to the CED board, the daughter card is connected, and the board is being recognized in the **Device Manager**, as described in the Troubleshooting the Install section. 
 + 
 +===== Hardware Tips ===== 
 + 
 +If the software does not read any data back, take the following steps: 
 +  - Check that power is applied to the CED board and that the voltages are present on the P connectors as described in Table 3. 
 +  - Confirm the signal source is applied and outputting the expected signal. 
 +  - Probe different points in the signal path to ensure that the applied signal is present at the input of both the driver amplifiers and the ADC.  
 +If there are issues getting SNR performance,​ note the following:​ 
 +  * Some signal sources may require a filter in series to achieve performance. The SNR measurements for this board were tested with the AP-2322 signal source. This is a high performance audio analyzer and source.  
 +  * To achieve best SNR performance,​ ensure that the signal amplitude is sufficient to deliver a full-scale input range to the ADC. Monitor the maximum and minimum amplitude or fundamental amplitude in the **Spectrum** tab. Ideally, the fundamental should provide a full-scale swing; therefore, adjust the signal source output to cover the full-scale range.
