AD9081_FMCA_EBZ: Need confirmation regarding some FMC pins.

Hi,

We are planning to use AD9081-FMCA-EBZ in our design for some evaluation project. but we have pin limitation on FMC side. We like to know about following pins and their use in system design:

1. RSTB

2. TXEN, RXEN

3. IRQB

4. GPIO <10..0>

5. AGC0<1..0>,AGC1<1..0>,AGC2<1..0>,AGC3<1..0>,

6. HMC_GPIO1

7. HMC_SYNC

Is the above pins are necessary to configure ADC/DAC of MxFE for JESD204C with data rate 24.75Gbps?. or can we skip?. what are there importance?.

we need this ADC/DAC MxFE for validating JESD204C interface with highest rate 24.75Gbps.

How to use the ACE software to configure AD9081-FMCA-EBZ without using ADS9?. Like Texas instrument has there own GUI to controlled ADC/DAC independently, can we control AD9081_FMCA_EBZ independently with ACE software without using ADS9?

Please let us know your response.

Regards,

Imran

    1. needed to initialize AD9081

    2 - 7 are optional unless you plan to use any of these features. please refer to UG-1578 for more information.

    the AD9081-FMCA-EBZ is designed to natively work with ADS9-v2EBZ and ACE. however, if you have a standard off the shelf fpga dev kit, the board supports it, but the software to control the eval board will not be ACE. please see link below for more information

    AD9081 & AD9082 Prototyping Platform User Guide [Analog Devices Wiki]

    we need this ADC/DAC MxFE for validating JESD204C interface with highest rate 24.75Gbps.

    please refer to UG-1829 table 2 for some canned use cases. 

    Like Texas instrument has there own GUI to controlled ADC/DAC independently, can we control AD9081_FMCA_EBZ independently with ACE software without using ADS9?

    I do not know what texas instruments offers but i can tell you that you can use the standalong app and api for setting up AD9081-FMCA-EBZ. it does not need ACE. You can also look at the wiki linked above for more information.
