Xilinx and Analog Devices have achieved JESD204B interoperability between Xilinx JESD204 LogiCORE IP in the Kintex-7 FPGA and the ADI AD9250 analog-to-digital high-speed data converter. The results confirm that off-the-shelf ADI JESD204B data converters and Xilinx FPGAs work together seamlessly. The interoperability means manufacturers can take advantage of JESD204B to accelerate time-to-market for their new products by shortening development time, reducing system test effort, and minimizing development issues.
Analog Devices announced the FMC176 quad channel ADC and dual channel DAC FPGA mezzanine card. The FMC176 features JEDEC JESD204B serializer/de-serializer (SerDes) technology. It enables digital and analog designers to simplify high-speed data converter-to-FPGA connectivity. The ADI FMC features two AD9250, dual-channel, 14-bit, 250-MSPS A/D converters with JESD204B-compatible serial output data interface and two AD9129 dual 16-bit 5.6-GSPS RF D/A converters. It is available now for $2995.
Analog Devices announced their AD9250 dual-channel, 14-bit, 250 MSPS, A/D converter. It supports the JEDEC JESD204B serial output data interface standard. The ADI AD9250 device features a simplified interface that is ideal for next-generation FPGA-based applications in software-defined radio and medical ultrasound. The 250 MSPS AD9250-250 is available now for $131.57. A 170 MSPS pin-compatible version (AD9250-170) is available for $72.49.
