AD9371 and JESD204b Xilinx IP core

It's great to see the AD9371 info released at last.


On page 53 of the AD9371-UG-992.pdf it quotes

"Analog Devices uses the Xilinx JESD204B IP bundled with

XC7Z045 FFG900 for demonstration with the provided Analog

Devices evaluation platform."


I'm not sure if this means I will have to purchase the Xilinx JESD204b IP or not if I wish to use/experiment with the AD9371 Eval board. I know you can request a 21 day evaluation license from Xilinx for the JESD204b IP, but 3 weeks is over in the blink of an eye when you're trying to get an in-depth understanding of the ADI Transceiver chips.


Can you clarify for me whether I will need to purchase a Xilinx JESD204b IP in order to use the new AD9371 Eval board with my ZC706 (XC7Z045 FFG900).


Also, are you intending to do a Wiki page like you do with the FMCOMMSx boards?


Many Thanks,




P.S. I like your approach with the API software this time.
