I am using the DC2390A-A evaluation board for the LTC2500-32 ADC with the Arrow/Terasic SoCkit Cyclone V FPGA evaluation board. I cannot find the design files for the Arrow/Terasic SoCkit evaluation board for use with the DC2390A-A. I am in need of the design files to program the Cyclone V FPGA of the SoCkit evaluation board so that I can evaluate the LTC2500-32 on the DC2390A-A evaluation board.
I can't even find the pinout information for the DC2390A-A evaluation board! So at this point, the DC2390A-A evaluation board is useless.
Thank you for any assistance with this issue!
I have been informed that the DC2390 article may no longer be pointing to the most recent version of the FPGA image. Can you provide me with an email address that I can send a link to, with the most recent…
Hi Ghoover and HypeInst,
The SD card image has been updated and we are in the process of publishing the updated Python code.
Thanks for your patience in working through these issues.
Wow, glad you finally got some actual data! Now you're digging into the analog performance details of the part - 17 effective bits is just right - the no-latency data has an SNR of 104dB, which is about…
The DC2390A-A schematic is here: https://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/eval-board-schematic/DC2390A4-SCH.PDF
The SoCkit board files are here: http://www.analog.com/media/en/evaluation-boards-kits/evaluation-software/LT_SoCkit_latest_SDcard_image.zip
Thank you for your response. The SoCkit board file that you linked only provides the SD card image for the bootable Linux-based OS for the HPS of the Cyclone V FPGA of the SoCkit board.
Can you also provide the files to configure the FPGA of the SoCkit for use with the DC2390A-A?
Install LinearLab Tools here: https://www.analog.com/en/design-center/evaluation-hardware-and-software/evaluation-platforms/linearlab-tools.html
After installing LinearLab Tools follow the directions in the DC2390 demo Manual here: https://www.analog.com/media/en/dsp-documentation/evaluation-kit-manuals/DC2390AF.PDF
LinearLab Tools doesn't even support the DC2390A-A. There are a few Python scripts in the package, but they don't even work. Finally, there are no FPGA design files in the package.
In the app_examples folder of the LinearLab Tools install, there is a folder labeled ltc2500_family that contains about 20 different python programs for the DC2390. I haven't personally tried all of them but I have tried several and they all worked.
