The AD9279-65EBZ Evalboard is available and customer would like to use 80MSPs.
Will this work by just adjusting the AD9279 to Mode III?


Unfortunately the AD9279-65EBZ will not run at 80MHz.  The FPGA on the
HSC-ADC-EVALCZ will not run fast enough.  That is why the AD9279-80KITZ
exists.  It comes with the AD9279 board and a version of the HSC-ADC-EVALCZ
that will support the faster speeds. 

Therefore you will need to order the KITZ if you want to evaluate at 80MHz.
