Functional Description

www.ti.com
Functional Description
The DAC3XJ8XEVM is intended for evaluation of the DAC3XJ8X family of high-speed, JESD204B
interface DACs. The digital input signal to the DAC is provided from the FMC connector (J16) on up to
eight 12.5-Gbps SerDes lanes using the JESD204B interface standard. The FMC connector is also used
for the SYNC signal required to establish the JESD204B link and both device clock and SYSREF signal
for the FPGA.
The analog output of the DAC3XJ8X can be monitored on the installed SMA connectors labeled IOUTA
through IOUTD for channels A through D, respectively. The analog outputs are transformer coupled and
do not pass low frequency signals below approximately 10 MHz. The transformer converts the differential
DAC output to a single-ended output for use with common laboratory equipment through wired SMA cable
connections.
The clocks for the DAC and FPGA are distributed using the LMK04828 ultra low-noise clock jitter cleaner
for JESD204B applications. The LMK04828 can be setup in a variety of configurations including clock
distribution mode and dual-loop jitter cleaning mode. In clock distribution mode, the desired DAC output
rate is provided to the CLKIN connector and the LMK04828 divides and distributes the device clocks and
SYSREF signals. In dual-loop mode, the CLKIN connector can be used to provide a reference to the
LMK04828, but the clocks are generated on board using the LMK04828 PLL and onboard 122.88 MHz
VCXO.
Figure 1 shows a simplified block diagram of the DAC3XJ8XEVM. See the schematics and bill of materials
(BOM) located in the DAC3XJ8X Design Package (SLAC646) for detailed information. Table 1 contains

Clock Configuration
This section includes DAC3XJ8XEVM clocking options, and LMK04828 configuration options.
5.1
DAC3XJ8XEVM Clocking Options
The DAC3XJ8XEVM allows three clocking options for the DAC3XJ8X:
1. Clocks Generated or Distributed by LMK04828
The DAC clocks and FMC clocks come from the onboard LMK04828 clock chip. This is the default
option. The device clock for the DAC is DCLKOUT2 and SYSREF is SDCLKOUT3. There are three
pairs of clocks sent to the FMC connector meant for the FPGA or other use. The device clock and
SYSREF pairs sent to the FMC connector are as follows: DCLKOUT0 and SDCLKOUT1, DCLKOUT6
and SDCLKOUT7, and DCLKOUT8 and SDCLKOUT9. Any of these pairs can be configured as a
device clock and SYSREF pair or as two device clocks of the same frequency. Only one clock is
needed for use with the TSW14J56 which is DCLKOUT0 and SDCLKOUT1 and the other two FMC
clock pairs can be powered off.
2. FMC Port Provides Clocks to DAC3XJ8X
The DAC device clock and SYSREF are provided through the FMC port on the signals
FMC_DACCLK_P/N and FMC_SYSREF_P/N. For this option, R16, R18, R4, and R7 must be
uninstalled and R187, R188, R189, and R190 need to be installed. If a common-mode voltage of 0.5 V
cannot be guaranteed on these signals then it is recommended to install 0.01-µF capacitors instead of
0-Ω resistors for these components. The LMK04828 can still be used to provide clocks to the FMC
connector, but the DACCLK and FPGA clocks should share the same time base for proper operation. If
the LMK04828 is not used then it should be powered down.
3. DAC3XJ8X Clocks are Provided through SMP Connectors
The DAC device clock and SYSREF are provided through the SMP connectors (J1, J3, J5, J7). For
this option, R16, R18, R4, and R7 need to be uninstalled and C12, C16, C1, and C8 need to be
installed. DC coupling of these signals is only recommended if a common-mode voltage of 0.5 V can
be guaranteed on these signals, in which case, 0-Ω resistors can be installed instead. The LMK04828
can still be used to provide clocks to the FMC connector, but the DACCLK and FPGA clocks should
share the same time base for proper operation. If the LMK04828 is not used then it should be powered
down.

5.2
LMK04828 Configuration Options
The following list describes three options for using the LMK04828 to provide clocks to the DAC3XJ8X and
FMC connector:
1. Clock Distributor
The LMK04828 is used as a clock distributor. This mode is selected by choosing "External" for the
EVM Clocking Mode on the Quick Start tab of the GUI. In this case, the fastest required clock, or an
integer multiple of it, should be provided to the CLKIN SMA connector (J17) with a maximum frequency
of 2.5 GHz. The LMK04828 is used to divide down to the desired clock frequencies. Leave JP2 open
to turn off the onboard VCXO to avoid crosstalk.
2. Clock Generator using Onboard VCXO
The LMK04828 is used as a clock generator using the onboard 122.88 MHz VCXO. This mode is
selected by choosing "Onboard" for the EVM Clocking Mode on the Quick Start tab of the GUI. JP2
must be shorted to turn on the onboard VCXO. The internal PLLs of the LMK04828 can be used with
the onboard VCXO to generate the desired frequencies. The possible LMK04828 VCO frequencies are
2457.6 MHz and 2949.12 MHz with the possible clock outputs being an integer division of those, with a
maximum division of 32. The first PLL of the LMK04828 can be used to lock to an external reference
provided to the CLKIN SMA connector (J17), but it is not required.
3. Clock Generator using External Reference
The LMK04828 is used a clock generator using an external reference provided to the CLKIN SMA
connector (J17). For this option, R177, C206, and C121 should be uninstalled and R185, R186, and
C92 should be installed. JP2 can be left open to turn off the onboard VCXO to avoid crosstalk. This
option allows a wider frequency range of generated clock frequencies only limited by the VCO
frequency ranges of the LMK04828 (see LMK04828 datasheet (SNAS605) for VCO frequency ranges).
The possible clock outputs are an integer division of the VCO frequency with a maximum division of
32. PLL1 of the LMK04828 is bypassed in this mode
