Renesas offers two options for evaluating high-speed analog-to-digital converter products with LVDS and/or LVCMOS outputs. A complete, turnkey evaluation platform is available, which includes data capture hardware and software to process and display acquired data. This system provides the fastest and easiest path to evaluating an ADC since no additional software coding is required of the user.

The second option is an adapter board that facilitates connection of an ADC daughter card to an FMC-based FPGA development board. This solution offers greater flexibility since the user has full access to the FPGA functionality and can therefore perform signal processing operations and/or "hardware in the loop" simulations. No software is provided for this option since there are a wide variety of supported FGPA development boards.
