This ISLA214P50-55210EV1Z is an evaluation platform featuring Renesas' ultra-high, dynamic range, fully differential amplifier (FDA), the ISL55210, and the high-speed, high-performance, 14-bit, 500MSPS ADC, the ISLA214P50. In the delivered configuration, it offers a full signal path reference design providing a 100MHz flat channel bandwidth that achieves typically <-85dBc distortion terms with -2dBFS at the ADC inputs from a -7dBm single-ended input. The channel characteristics (passband location, stop-band attenuation, gain, etc.), can be easily altered to suit your needs by modifying the 3rd order RLC filter between the amplifier and analog-to-digital converter. To facilitate immediate performance measurement and analysis, this PCB daughterboard pairs to Renesas' existing high-speed ADC evaluation platform.
