TI ADS1675 Reference Design Features Opal Kelly XEM3010-1500P FPGA Module

The Opal Kelly XEM3010-1500P FPGA module is a as a key component of Texas Instruments’ new ADS1675 Reference Design evaluation platform. The Opal Kelly XEM module enables both LVDS and CMOS serial interfaces and provides on-board SDRAM and high-speed USB interface for the TI Reference Design. The XEM3010-1500P is an integration module based on a 1,500,000-gate Xilinx Spartan-3 FPGA. In addition to a high gate-count FPGA, the XEM3010 utilizes the high transfer rate of USB 2.0 for configuration downloads, enabling speedy FPGA configuration and data transfer.

TI ADS1675 Reference Design Evaluation Platform
The Texas Instruments ADS1675 is a high-speed, high-precision analog-to-digital converter (ADC). Using an advanced delta-sigma architecture, it operates up to 4MSPS with outstanding ac performance and dc accuracy. The ADS1675 Reference Design is a complete PC based solution for the evaluation of the ADS1675 using the ADCPro evaluation software. The hardware features the Opal Kelly XEM3010 FPGA controller, which allows the user to choose to run the converter in either serialized LVDS or standard CMOS modes. Options for setting the filter path and sampling rate are also provided.

Texas Instruments ADS1675 Features

  • Full-featured evaluation board for the ADS1675 24-bit Analog to Digital Converter
  • Easy-to-use evaluation software for Microsoft Windows XP
  • Built in analysis tools including scope, FFT and Histogram displays
  • Onboard or off board oscillator options
