The ADS5296AEVM (evaluation module) allows designers to evaluate the performance of Texas Instruments ADS5296A, low-power, 12-bit, 8-channel, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with sample rates up to 80 MSPS. The device can also be configured to operate as a 4-channel ADC running at 2x the sample rate by interleaving data from two ADC channels. In interleaving mode, the device accepts a double frequency input clock. Each ADC in a pair converts a common analog input signal at alternate rising edges of the 2x input clock.
In the event the user does not already have a method to attach to and analyze the data from the LVDS data stream, a deserializer board, TSW1400EVM, is offered. The TSW1400EVM, can connect to the ADS5263EVM and provides the data in parallel form for all four channels simultaneously. The TSW1400EVM, must be purchased separately.
