  • Hi Mark,

    Thank you!

    I have three questions about EVAL-AD9954

    1.)

    According to the user guide REF CLK should be 400MHz. AD9951 has internal multiplier. 

    Is it possible to use 100MHz with x4 multiplier?

    2.)

    0dBm means 0.632Vpp(50Ω)?

    ------------------

    Connect SMA to REF CLK DUT1 (J3) port. The signal source output frequency should be 400 MHz and a power output of 0 dBm. The clock signal input should only appear at the REF CLK DUT1 when the AD9954 Evaluation Board is fully powered up.

    ------------------

    3.)

    Is it possible to use USB to parallel Printer Cable?

    Best Regards,

    ttd

    Hi ttd,

    Here are my answers to your questions:

    1. Yes, it is possible to use 100MHz with x4 multiplier.

    2. Yes.

    3, No. I tried using a USB to parallel printer cable and the board was not detected by the software.

    Best regards,

    Mark

  • Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your reply.

    USB to parallel printer cable doesn't work, too.

    So I'd like to prepare the pci/pcie card with parallel interface.

  • Hi Mark,

    Most of PCI to parallel card looks like Dsub 25pin.

    Does  "Dsub 25pint to centronics 36pin cable" work for EVAL-AD9954 ?

    Hi ttd,

    I haven't tried using Dsub 25pin to Centronics 36pin cable but this will work as this cable was recommended by my colleague in the past. The cable I used to control the board is Centronics 36pin male to male cable with Centronics 36pin female to HP Centronics or mini Centronics 36pin male adapter since the only available parallel port in our setup is the HP Centronics or mini Centronics 36pin.

    Best regards,

    Mark
