The MAX5850 evaluation kit (EV kit) contains a single MAX5850 high-performance 14-bit, 3.072Gsps digitalto- analog converter (DAC) which can directly synthesize 1.5GHz of instantaneous bandwidth in baseband. The device is optimized for cable access and digital video broadcast applications and meets spectral emission requirements for a broad set of radio transmitters and modulators, including DOCSIS 3.1/3.0, DVB-C/-C2, DVB-T2, ISDB-T, and EPoC. The MAX5850 EV kit provides a complete system for evaluating performance of the MAX5850 device as well as development of a digital video solution.
The MAX5850 accepts input data through a six-lane JESD204B serializer/deserializer (SerDes) interface at 10.24Gbps that is Subclass-0 compliant. The MAX5850 EV kit connects to one FMC connector on the Xilinx® VC707 evaluation kit, allowing the FPGA board to communicate with the MAX5850’s JESD204B serial link interface.
The evaluation kit includes Windows® 7/8-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for configuring all the MAX5850 registers through the SPI interface, controlling of the VC707 FPGA, and monitoring the temperature.
