ADC3660: ADC3660 - Xilinx build required for 8 devices

Part Number: ADC3660

Help needed


We have made a board 8 x ADC3600 with a FMC connection, connected to a Xilinx AC701


 The first ADC3660 has the FCLK, the other 7 are data only


 When I grab data from the first ADC3660 - it looks good

 The other ADC3660 return good data, but only after a bad read of data. I.e., in the data stream in the HSDC pro - If I use 4 channels, 2 of the channels will be rubbish and 2 good (2 channel mode = just rubbish, yet okay on the first ad3660 with the FCLK)I

Xilinx build

My issue is, it that I would now like to read data from all the ADCs at once.

The example build has an option ADC_L in the ADC if IP block. This builds okay, but I'm not seeing the data correctly, plus it gives a small timing error.

It looks like the data isn't being written to BRAM correctly.

I  also added in the ‘Sync’ option, but that doesn’t seem to do anything. How should the chips be synchronised together?


On the clock, the data sheet says common mode voltage of .9 but when AC coupled, we have a common mode voltage of 1.1 – which is the same as the EVM board. I admit it seems happy as it is.

Many thanks
