I've spend an unfortunate amount of time trying to debug a design with my DAC3484EVM only to realize that the FMC-DAC adapter I (quite recently) ordered is a Rev. B. The pinout on this board is quite a bit different than what is shown in the Rev. D schematics (the only ones I can find). The pinout I found with my multi-meter is:
D0 -> H28, H29
D1 -> D20, D21
D2 -> H25, H26
D3 -> H22, H23
D4 -> H19, H20
D5 -> H16, H17
D6 -> H13, H14
D7 -> H10, H11
D8 -> G36, G37
D9 -> G33, G34
D10 -> G30, G31
D11 -> G27, G28
D12 -> G24, G25
D13 -> G21, G22
D14 -> G18, G19
D15 -> G15, G16
DCLK -> C22, C23
CLKOUT -> H4, H5
The 8 MSB's and the clock signals are the same as Rev. D, but the most frustrating difference is that the FRAME, SYNC, and PARITY signals have NO connection whatsoever to the FMC connector!
I'm posting this for a few reasons:
1) TI, please stop sending Rev. B boards out!,
2) If you have a Rev. B board, I hope this helps.
3) Tech support is taking a while to get back to me about sending a replacement. Is there anyone within TI that can help me get a Rev. D board more quickly?
A few weeks ago we recalled all of the previous revs of the adapter board and have the rev D at the estore.
I can get a revD send to you asap. I will message you privately for contact info.

We have shipped one rev D adapter to your attention. I will message you privately for shipping/tracking info.
Got it. Thanks!
Do you guys still have Rev D for the FMC-DAC-Adatper Card? We need Rev D, but the one we received is Rev B. Can you help in this?
Thank you very much for your help.
I will contact you offline to get your shipping information for the revision D replacement.
Thank you for your reply. Can we speed up the replacement process? We would like to receive the Rev D replacement as soon as possible.
We have a batch of new Rev D boards that will ready to ship by the end of next week. We will send one to you as soon as they are ready assuming you've sent your shipping information to Kang.
I am trying to interface Xilinx ML 605 to DAC34H84 using the FMC DAC adapter Rev D. the FMC adapter can't be connected to the HPC connector in the Xilinx board . This is because the power connector on the DAC board prevents the HPC connector on the adapter to fit in to that in ML 605. (The power connector on the DAC board hits a switch and a PCIe connector on ML605). What is a solution to this?
