Using AD9681 and AD9144 eval boards simultaneously with FPGA board

Hello everyone,


I need a setup with fast multichannel ADCs and DACs connected to an FPGA for the digital data processing. The converters I’m interested in are the AD9681 and the AD9144 and I would like to use it with a Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA. 


My first question is, does the EVAL-AD9681 have a FMC connector? In the analog wiki there is a note, that there are two versions of this evaluation board, the newer one with an FMC connector, but I could not find much further information about this (pinout, dimensions, etc).

Edit: Nevermind, I found the docs.


The evaluation board for the AD9144 (AD9144-FMC-EBZ) seems to be the FMC version and compliant with the typical mezzanine card dimensions (at least the width), is this correct?


And the second question: Is there any possibility to use both converters (or rather their evaluation boards) simultanously with the Xilinx AC701 board? The problem is, it only has one HPC FMC connector. 

Or alternatively, does anyone have any experience with this board?


Thanks in advance,



Edit: I saw that the AC701 does not have all the FMC Pins connected that are needed for the AD9144 board. I'm still interested, if someone already worked with the Artix-7 Board from Inrevium and can tell me, if the mentioned converter evaluation boards will both fit simultanously on there.
