How to synchronize two LTC2380-24 boards?

Hi,

How two ADC LTC2380-24 ADCs can be synchronized so that the sampled data from the ADCs are phase aligned ?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help !

Best,

Sofyan

    Hi Sofyan,

    There is no easy way that I could think of to synchronize two LTC2380-24 boards. You could possibly connect two boards to the same clock source, power them up and then enable the clock source. This should get them converting at the same time but you would need two separate computers with two separate controller boards to collect the data. There is an external trigger on the controller boards that you could use to try and synchronize the two boards but there is no guarantee that the delay between the two triggers would be exactly the same.
