Quick Start Procedure
4.1
Initial Configuration and DAC Output
Use the following for initial configuration and DAC output:
• Engage the 5-V supply; the initial current should be 1.6 ±0.2 A
• Launch the TSW40RF8x EVM GUI:
– Go to Start → Texas Instruments → TSW40RF8x GUI
NOTE: USB connection is possible only when the power is engaged to the board.
•
•
– If needed, press the Connect FTDI? button to establish the USB connection; pressing this button
multiple times may be necessary to get it to engage
Select the DAC38RF8x tab → Quick Start tab
Press the LOAD DEFAULT button
NOTE: This loads the file:
2T2R_RevC_ConstInput_12xDec_18xInt_2949p12M_4915p2Gb.cfg
This also loads the proper registers but does not back-fill the values to the ADC tab front
panel. To complete this task go to Low Level tab and press the Read All icon.
Read All does not back-fill the DAC NCO frequency value. If desired, manually go to the
DAC38RF8x tab → DAC38RF8x tab → Digital(DAC A/B) to change NCO Frequency(MHz)
to: 1960.
Read All does not load the actual ADC NCO frequency (the NCO value is loaded). To see
the frequency go to ADC32RFxx tab → ADC32RFxx tab → DDC Configuration tab. Place
cursor in the numerical value and hit a space then enter; the NCO frequency is then
calculated.
This file engages the DAC constant input feature to easily see an output tone without pattern
generation; this must be disengaged when sending a digital pattern to the DAC.

Manual Software Adjustment
In general, the GUI software operates similar to the individual GUIs of the DAC38RF8x EVM and the
ADC32RFxx EVM. It is possible to operate in a manual mode following the procedure of the RF DAC and
RF ADC respectively; however, there are a few minor differences.
5.7.1
RF DAC Set-Up Conditions
The DAC PLL reference frequency is derived from the LMK VCO divided down outputs. This is the only
way to provide this reference; there is no option for external PLL reference.
5.7.2
RF ADC Set-Up Conditions
• ADC SysRef is generated through the LMK device so its VCO must be set to the desired clocking
frequency.
• Clock divider for the FPGA is calculated based on SerDes rate of the DAC.
