I have these 2 eval boards and have them working with the "High Speed Data Converter Pro GUI" software. I would like to use an external trigger to capture data and write the data to a file.
The SLWU087C (revised July 2015) User's Guide describes how to use the external trigger. But, once the external trigger happens you have to click on a GUI "Read DDR Memory" button to get the data into the software. Then you have to use the File menu to save the data to a file.
There is a continuous capture option, but it isn't at all clear if it will work with the external trigger option?
Is there a way to use the eval boards & software as a triggered data acquisition system?
I'm assigning your post to the correct applications engineer. He should respond soon.

In the trigger menu of HSDCPro, you can choose the "arm on next capture button press". This is probably the trigger you want. Unfortunately, we have never enabled the ability to trigger and do continuous capture at the same time. It is one or the other. We are working on that feature. However, included in the HSDCPro installer are tools to send commands, such as "Capture" to HSDCPro via Matlab or Labview.

It will probably me another month at least before it is in the HSDCPro installer. I will bring it up at the next meeting and try to get it pushed up.
Any progress on getting the external trigger working with continuous capture on the EVAL boards?
The external trigger feature will not be added in the short term.

Now I'm even more confused. There is a Trigger input on the TSW14J56EVM; are you saying this input doesn't work?
