Other Parts Discussed in Thread: ADC3444, , ADC3444EVM, LMX2572LP
I am currently using the ADC3444EVM for my project. I would like to connect my Zynq-7000 FPGA to the EVM board via the FMC-ADC-Adapter. I am a beginner and this is my first time working with an ADC and as I understand the ADC3444EVM requires a clock input through pin J9 (SMA port). I would like to send the clock input from my FPGA to the EVM board. Taking a look at the schematic of the FMC-ADC-Adapter and ADC3444EVM, it shows a pin called the "SCLK" that connects from the FMC on the FMC-ADC-Adapter to the SCLK pin of the ADC3444. Can I use this SCLK pin to send a clock input rather than the SMA port, pin J9? Or is pin J9 of the ADC3444EVM the only way to send the ADC3444 a clock input? If so, do you have any ideas how I could still use my FPGA to send a clock input to the J9 pin (SMA port)? Perhaps a self-designed PCB connected to the FPGA with a SMA port connecting to the EVM SMA J9 pin.
Thank you and best regards,
