EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
POWER SUPPLIES
LINKS
The AD7714-3 evaluation board is powered via the 5 V supply
from the USB connector, J1. This 5 V supply can be used to
power the AD7714-3 directly. A 3.3 V regulated voltage from
the on-board ADP3303 (a high precision, low power, 3.3 V
output voltage regulator) can also be used. Alternatively, the
AD7714-3 can be powered using an external 3 V or 5 V power
supply via J3.
There are fifteen link options that must be set for the required
operating setup before using the evaluation board. The
functions of these link options are outlined in Table 1.

Description
This link is used to externally short the AIN1 input channel to the reference. With LK1 and LK2 in place,
Pin AIN1 is shorted to Pin AIN2 and both are biased at REFIN+. This allows a noise analysis to be
performed. With this link out, an external voltage may be applied to AIN1 using the SMB connectors.
This link is used to short Pin AIN1 to Pin AIN2. When both LK1 and LK2 are inserted, noise analysis can be
performed. With this link out, an external voltage can be applied to AIN2 using the SMB connectors.
These links are used to connect the on-board temperature demonstration circuit to the ADC, and must all
be in place when attempting to measure ambient temperature.
When the on-board temperature demonstration circuit is selected in software, LK7, when in place,
connects AVDD to the temperature demonstration circuit. LK4 and LK5 when in place connect the 1 kΩ
thermistor to the AIN1 − AIN2 analog input channel, and with LK2 and LK3 in place a ratiometric
configuration of the temperature demonstration circuit is in place.
These links are used to connect the AD589 reference to the AD7714-3. When both links are in place, the
1.23 V generated by the band gap reference is used as the reference source to the AD7714-3. When these
links are removed, another reference source can be applied to the AD7714-3 using the SMB connectors.
LK8 and LK9 need to be removed when the temperature demonstration is operated.
LK10 is used to select the polarity of the AD7714-3 SCLK. With LK10 in Position A, POL is connected to
DVDD so that data is output on the SCLK falling edge. With LK10 in Position B, POL is connected to AGND
and data is output from the AD7714-3 on the SCLK rising edge.
LK11 controls the STANDBY pin of the AD7714-3. With LK11 in Position A, STANDBY is pulled high and the
AD7714-3 is powered up. With LK11 in Position B, STANDBY is pulled low and the AD7714-3 is placed in
power-down mode.
LK12 is used to enable or disable the AD7714-3 analog input buffers. With LK12 in Position A, the pin
BUFFER is tied high and the analog inputs of the AD7714-3 are buffered. With LK12 in Position B, the
BUFFER pin is tied low and the analog inputs of the AD7714-3 are unbuffered.
LK13 and LK14 are used to connect the 2.4576 MHz crystal to the AD7714-3. When these links are in
place, the on-board crystal is connected to the AD7714-3. When these links are removed, an external
clock source can be applied to the AD7714-3 via the SMB connector.
LK15 is used to select the power source for AVDD on the AD7714-3. LK15 in Position A selects an external
power supply, supplied via J3. LK15 in Position B selects the 3.3 V regulated output from the on-board
ADP3303 voltage regulator.
