TI creates new benchmark for evaluating high-speed data converters with industry’s highest-performance, lowest-cost evaluation boards

Technology News |
Texas Instruments Incorporated has introduced what the company claims is the industry’s highest-performance and lowest-cost evaluation boards for evaluating high-speed data converters. The TSW1400EVM data capture and pattern generation board evaluates up to 16-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs).

The board costs 75-percent less than the previous generation, while providing twice the memory. Additionally, the TSW1405EVM for pattern capture and the TSW1406EVM for pattern generation are the lowest-cost solutions of their kind by up to 80 percent, providing simple and ultra-low cost platforms for quick evaluation of TI data converters.
 
The TSW1400EVM comprises a complete system to capture and evaluate data samples and to generate and send desired test patterns to DAC evaluation modules (EVMs) via an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI).  The board includes 1 GB of memory, twice as much as competing platforms, enabling 512-M sample depth for higher fast Fourier transform (FFT) resolution and capturing larger data frames for demodulation analysis.  The board is compatible with CMOS- and LVDS-interface ADC and DAC EVMs, while supporting up to eight simultaneous-channel analyses.

Supporting up to 1.5-GSPS LVDS I/O rates for both ADCs and DACs the board enables use with most TI ADC and DAC EVMs at maximum interface and sample rates.

 Key features and benefits of the TSW1405EVM and TSW1406EVM include the ability to provide simple pattern generation for 16-bit LVDS ADCs and DACs with up to 64k sample depth via an easy-to-use graphical user interface.  They both support 1-GSPS LVDS I/O rates for both ADCs and DACs, enabling use with most TI ADC and DAC evaluation modules at maximum sample rates.

Availability and Pricing

The TSW1400EVM is available today for a suggested retail price of $649. The TSW1405EVM and TSW1406EVM will be available in March 2012 for a suggested retail price of $99 respectively.
