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.
