73M1966B Evaluation Kit User Manual

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The 73M1966B evaluation kit is a system for 73M1966B customer evaluations. The system is primarily designed to be used with a standard PCM channel measuring set, such as the Wandel & Goltermann PCM-4, but can be used as a stand-alone evaluation platform. The EV kit contains the 73M1966 demo motherboard, the 73M1966B demo board, and the Teridian Graphical User Interface (GUI). The recommended Wandel & Goltermann PCM-4 test set is an automated system that can analyze the performance of the 73M1966B. The GUI can be used to configure the 73M1966B control registers using a personal computer and to read its status conditions.

The EV kit demonstrates functionality and allows evaluation of the 73M1966B performance characteristics through the PCM channel measuring set, which provides a source of A-law or µ-law data that is used for the analysis of the bidirectional channel.
