12- and 14-Bit, 130 MSPS, High Speed D/A Converter Evaluation Boards


The HI5860SOICEVAL1 and HI5960SOICEVAL1 evaluation boards provide a quick and easy method for evaluating the HI5860 and HI5960 (12- or 14-bit), 125MSPS high speed DACs. The board is configured so that the converter outputs differential current into a transformer circuit to form an output voltage. The amount of current out of the DAC is determined by an external resistor and either an internal or external reference voltage. The CMOS digital inputs have optional external termination resistors. The evaluation board includes a VME digital interface that is compatible with all previous Renesas D/A converter evaluation boards.
