66AK2H12/14 EVM with TSW38J84

Other Parts Discussed in Thread: 66AK2H12, TIDEP0034, 66AK2H14, 66AK2L06, DAC38J84, DAC39J84


I want to interface a 66AK2H12/14 EVM with TSW38J84, unfortunately 66AK2H12/14 EVM has no FMC connector, so please help

Any suggestion?

  • Hossein Talaiee,

    Welcome to the TI E2E forum. I hope you will find many good answers here and in the documents and in the TI Wiki Pages (for processor issues). Be sure to search those for helpful information and to browse for the questions others may have asked on similar topics ( Please read all the links below my signature.

    We will get back to you on the above query shortly. Thank you for your patience.

  • Hossein,

    Yes, you cannot connect TSW38J84 directly to the 66AK2H12.14 EVM. You may need to have daughter card to interface these two boards. I believe the below JESD attach would be compatible for your requirement.

  • There is two issue for TIDEP0034 as a solution for my problem:

      1) The Keystone SoC EVM used in this solution is 66AK2L06 but I strongly prefer 66AK2H12 or 66AK2H14

      2) The EVM used for DAC38J84 have no RF synthesizer and quadrature modulator, so I need another board to connect to this DAC EVM to do the job and it's very difficult to achieve a good performance with a separate board for RF synthesizer and quadrature modulator.

    I want to see, is there any daughter board that interface 66AK2H12/14 EVM to TSW38J84 ?

    If there is not, do you think that I must design a daughter board to do interface the 66AK2H12/14 EVM to TSW38J84 or it's better to design a card with DAC38J84/DAC39J84 and RF synthesizer and quadrature modulator on it and directly connect it to 66AK2H12/14 EVM as a single board solution?

    Before answering this question, do you think that connectors on the 66AK2H12/14 EVM can directly interface with JESD204B or I must design a daughter board with FPGA on it ?

  • Hosseinn,

    There is no daughter card available to interface 66AK2H12/14 EVM to TSW38J84. You may need to develop your own custom board to interface TSW38J84. It would be better to design a single board solution.

    The 66AK2H12/14 EVM does not have a support for JESD204B. You must design a daughter board with FPGA on it.
