AD9508/PCBZ API

Question asked by mnugent on Jul 18, 2018

I have a system that uses the Analog Devices AD9508/PCBZ eval board to route clocks to various sinks.  It takes a 150 MHz input clock and provides the following:

  • 2x LVDS 150 MHz clocks
  • 2x 10 MHz CMOS clocks
  • 2x 50 MHz CMOS clocks

 

The output format and divide ratios are constant.  My preference is for the eval board to be configured during power up automatically without requiring a user to open the AD9508 Eval GUI and enter in the values.  I know the board can be programmed in pin-strap mode using the jumpers, but I don't believe there's a pin strap value that support a divide ratio of 15 to get the 10 MHz clocks.

 

So I wanted to see if there's a way for the GUI that I've developed for the system could send the commands that are currently issued from the AD9508 Eval GUI.  In other words, I want to know if there's a documented API for the AD9508 eval board such that my Visual C# program can command and control the eval board.
