does this have an integrated controller in it? if not, any recommendations?
Your original inquiry was posted in the ADC Drivers Forum so it didn't initially get detected by our High Speed ADC Applications support Team. I have moved your inquiry to our High Speed ADC forum.
The AD9683 ADC operational modes and features are accessible and controllable via a Serial Port Interface (SPI).
Can you please expand/clarify what you mean by "integrated controller" ?
