Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADCPRO, DATACONVERTERPRO-SW, ADS52J90
I got the following questions from another team, and we need to know if the ADS52J90 ADC in combination with the TSW14J56 eval board and either the DATACONVERTERPRO-SW or ADCPRO is a good fit?
- Measure continuously for a few minutes and calculating the average value. This must be able to handle high frequencies (up to half the sampling frequency) without aliasing.
- Measure continuously for a few minutes and calculating the highest peak measured at different low-pass filtered frequencies. E.g. 1 MHz, 100 kHz, 1 kHz. The low-pass filter can be implemented using a moving average over a number of samples.
- Do a one-shot measurement for a short period of time (1-2 seconds), saving every sample. Then showing an oscilloscope view of the captured waveform with the ability to zoom in and out.
- Same as 3 but exporting all samples for external processing.
- Is it possible to automate use case 1 and 2 from a Windows or Linux environment? We are using NI TestStand for this type of automation but we are flexible. For example: a set of command line programs, a DLL API, Python bindings, PowerShell scripts etc.
- Does the typical usage involve signal processing on the FPGA? Or is the FPGA only for capturing samples to the evaluation board DRAM and later processing on a PC using DATACONVERTERPRO-SW?
- Do you have any Linux software for this solution? Either a full GUI or enough low-level software in order to do use case 1 above on a headless Linux system.
