The ISL5961EVAL1 evaluation board provides a quick and easy method for evaluating the ISL5961 14-bit, 130/210MSPS high-speed digital-to-analog (D/A) converter. The ISL5961EVAL1 is populated with an SOIC 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.
