ADC3643: ADC3643EVM

Part Number: ADC3643
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADC3641, ADC3683, TSW1400EVM


  We plan to use ADC3641 in our new project. I download the EVM design files and found it use FPGA to get ADC results,

1, Why use FPGA?

2, Can we use MCU to get it? If OK, Is there something we need take attention when design? 


  • Hi Ronghua,

    We use a custom FPGA board (TSW1400EVM) to receive the ADC data and generate DAC data across many of our EVMs. Any device which is capable of receiving the LVDS data signals at the resulting serialization rate is perfectly fine to be used, including MCU, DSP, FPGA, etc. It is important to understand the mode (1/2-wire, 1-wire, 2-wire) and output resolution, both of which determine what the resulting serialization rate is. More info can be found on page 37 of the ADC3683 datasheet in Table 8-6. Serialization factor vs output resolution for different output modes
