The TSW1400EVM is a complete pattern generator and data capture circuit board used to evaluate most of Texas Instruments’ (TI) high speed analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and digital to analog converters (DAC).
The TSW1400EVM features a high speed LVDS bus capable of providing 16-bits of data at 1.5 GSPS. Additionally, the board will support a dual 16-bit CMOS interface that will be enabled in a future firmware upgrade. These two interfaces will allow evaluation for almost all of Texas Instruments’ catalog of high speed ADC and DAC evaluation modules at their full data rate. The board comes with 1GB of memory, which provides a 16-bit sample depth of 512 MB. This improved memory enables better FFT frequency resolution and larger capture sizes for more realistic tests. All of this functionality comes at a price that is lower than any other complete solution on the market.
The intuitive/easy-to-use GUI software package was designed using the TSW1400EVM family. It is an easy to use GUI that allows users to conduct time domain tests, single- or multiple-tone frequency tests, and even load their own test patterns. The EVM connects to your computer via a USB cable, and ships with the necessary power adapter.
