I want to evaluate an Analog Devices high speed DAC in my lab. What equipment do I need?

Question asked by clane2 Employee on Apr 22, 2011

You will need an evaluation board for the DAC of interest. To acquire the evaluation board, go to the bottom of the appropriate product page and follow the instructions for ordering an evaluation board.

Next, you will need a way to drive data into the DAC.

Analog Devices has developed a "data pattern generator" that we have named the DPG2.

The DPG2 is used in ADI's labs for evaluation and is offered to our customers for use in their labs.

For lab equipment, you will need a spectrum analyzer, clock source and power supply.
