The ISL5x61EVAL1 and ISL5x61EVAL2 evaluation boards (ISL5961EVAL1, ISL5961EVAL2, ISL5761EVAL1, ISL5761EVAL2, ISL5861EVAL1, and ISL5861EVAL2) provide a quick and easy method for evaluating the ISL5761, ISL5861 and ISL5961 (10-, 12-, or 14-bit), 130/210MSPS high-speed D/A (digital-to-analog) converters. The ISL5x61EVAL1 is populated with an SOIC package and ISL5x61EVAL2 is populated with a TSSOP package. 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 ribbon cable digital interface that is compatible with digital upconverter (DUC) evaluation boards like the ISL5217.
