Analog Devices recently launched the JESD204B Xilinx Transceiver Debug Tool. The FPGA-based reference design with software and HDL code reduces the design risk of high-speed systems incorporating JESD204B-compatible converters. It supports the 312.5-Mbps to 12.5-Gbps JESD204B data converter-to-FPGA serial data interface and Xilinx Inc., 7 series FPGAs and Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs.
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 introduced the AD9250-FMC-250EBZ kit for FPGA development. The FPGA mezzanine cards (FMC) features JEDEC JESD204B SerDes (serializer/de-serializer) technology. The AD9250-FMC-250EBZ kit helps digital and analog designers simplify and rapidly prototype high-speed JESD204B A/D converter-to-FPGA platforms. AD9250-FMC-250EBZ will be available on April 9, 2013. It is priced at $565.
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.
Xilinx recently introduced the Serial RapidIO Gen 2 v1.2 Endpoint LogiCORE, CPRI v4.1 LogiCORE, and JESD204B v.1.1 LogiCORE IP cores. The Xilinx three LogiCORE IP cores support connectivity standards and will help developers address design challenges in building new wireless equipment with higher system capacities. The Serial RapidIO Gen 2 v1.2 Endpoint LogiCORE IP, JESD204 v1.1 LogiCORE IP , and CPRI v4.1 LogiCORE IP are ideal for building programmable, flexible and cost effective 3G+/4G wireless base stations. They are available in Xilinx’s ISE Design Suite 13.3 and can be evaluated free of charge.
