Evaluating the AD9910 evaluation board

For context, I am in the process of developing an arbitrary function generator and am considering using the AD9910 as a viable option. First of all, would this evaluation board be "ready-to-go", or are there steps that must be done to physically connect components before the software may be run? Also, would I be correct in saying that the AD9910 and its evaluation board are, along with a PC and a frequency source, entirely sufficient for arbitrary function generation? (i.e. We would not be required to acquire additional components such as microprocessors, microcontrollers, capacitors, resistors, etc.? And it seems as though all commands could be sent through the USB connection?) I have already read the data sheets for both the AD9910 and the AD9910 Evaluation Board; neither says much in regards to the physical installment of the device.
