EVALUATION BOARD HARDWARE
DEVICE DESCRIPTION
The AD7928 ADC is a 12-bit, low power, 8-channel, successive
approximation ADC. The device operates from a single 2.7 V
to 5.25 V power supply and features throughput rates of up to
1 MSPS. The device contains a low noise, wide bandwidth
track-and-hold amplifier that can handle input frequencies
in excess of 8 MHz.
Full data on the AD7928 is available in the AD7928 data sheet,
which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide
when using the evaluation board. Full details on the EVALSDP-CB1Z are available at the SDP board product page.
HARDWARE LINK OPTIONS
The functions of the link options are described in Table 2. The
default setup is configured to operate the evaluation board with
the main power supply adapter and to interface to the SDP board.
POWER SUPPLIES
Before applying power and signals to the evaluation board,
ensure that all link positions are set according to the required
operating mode. See Table 2 for the complete list of link options.
The EVAL-AD7928SDZ evaluation board is supplied with a
wall-mountable switching power supply that provides 9 V dc
output. Connect the supply to a 100 V to 240 V ac wall outlet at
50 Hz to 60 Hz. The output from the supply is provided through
a 2.0 mm inner diameter jack that connects to the evaluation
board at J100. The 9 V supply is connected to the on-board, 5 V
linear regulator that supplies the correct bias to each of the
various sections on the evaluation board and on the EVALSDP-CB1Z SDP board.
When using the EVAL-AD7928SDZ evaluation board with the
EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board, power the evaluation board
through the J100 connector.
If the evaluation board is used without the 9 V adapter, an
external power supply in the range of 2.7 V to 5.25 V must be
connected to the AVDD input (Connector J102) to supply the
AD7928 VDD pin, and LK102 must be set in accordance with
Table 2. In addition, an external supply in the range of ±5 V to
±10 V must be connected to the V+, V−, and AGND of the J103
connector, and LK103-1 and LK103-2 must be set in accordance
with Table 2 to drive the input buffer amplifiers and reference
buffer amplifier.
Each supply is decoupled on this evaluation board using 10 µF
tantalum and 100 nF multilayer ceramic capacitors.

The default interface to this evaluation board is via the 120-way
connector, which connects the EVAL-AD7928SDZ evaluation
board to the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board.
TEST POINTS
There are numerous test points on the EVAL-AD7928SDZ
evaluation board. These test points provide easy access to the
signals from the evaluation board for probing, evaluation, and
debugging.
It is also possible to communicate with the AD7928 device via
the test points to operate the evaluation board in standalone
mode without the need for the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board.
BASIC HARDWARE SETUP
The EVAL-AD7928SDZ evaluation board connects to the
EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board. The SDP board is the controller
board, which is the communication link between the PC and
the main evaluation board.
Figure 2 shows a photograph of the connections between the
EVAL-AD7928SDZ daughter board and EVAL-SDP-CB1Z
controller board.
If an input signal is a bipolar input, it must be connected to
either VIN-A or VIN-B, Connector J4 or Connector J6,
respectively. This bias-up circuitry biases the bipolar input
signal for unipolar operation. The default configuration of the
bias-up circuit is for use with the AD7928 analog input range
extending from 0 V to 2 × REFIN (RANGE bit set to 0). For use
with the analog input range extending from 0 V to REFIN
(RANGE bit set to 1), change Resistor R21 and Resistor R23 in
the bias-up circuitry to 3 kΩ.
If using the evaluation board in the default mode of operation,
ensure that the link options are in their default positions as
outlined in Table 2. Ensure that all links are in the appropriate
position before connecting the evaluation board to the EVALSDP-CB1Z SDP board.
Before powering up the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board, connect
the EVAL-AD7928SDZ evaluation board to the 120-pin,
Connector J9, on the SDP board. After the evaluation board
and the SDP board have been connected securely using the
provided nylon screw set, apply power to the EVAL-AD7928SDZ
evaluation board. The EVAL-AD7928SDZ requires an external
7 V to 9 V dc power supply (included) to be connected to either
the 2.0 mm barrel connector, J100, or the external power
connector, J101.
Before connecting the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board to the PC,
ensure that the evaluation software (supplied on included CD)
has been installed. The full software installation procedure is
detailed in the Evaluation Board Software section.
Connect the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z SDP board to the PC via the
USB cable enclosed in the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z kit. If using a
Windows® XP platform, you may need to search for the SDP
board drivers. Choose to automatically search for the drivers for
the SDP board if prompted by the operating system.
Caution
Always remove power from the EVAL-AD7928SDZ evaluation
board before removing the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z controller board.

AC TESTING—HISTOGRAM
DC TESTING—HISTOGRAM
Figure 19 shows the Histogram capture tab. The histogram
shows the ADC code distribution for the ac input, computes
the mean and standard deviation (or transition noise) of the
converter, and displays the results.
The histogram is more commonly used for dc testing. Similar
to ac testing, the histogram shows the ADC code distribution
for the dc input, computes the mean and standard deviation
(or transition noise) of the converter, and displays the results.
Raw data is captured and passed to the PC for statistical
computations. To perform a histogram test, select the
Histogram tab in the AD7928 evaluation software main
window and click Single Capture or Continuous Capture

AC TESTING—FFT CAPTURE
Figure 20 shows the FFT capture tab. The FFT tests the traditional
ac characteristics of the converter and displays a fast Fourier
transform (FFT) of the results. As in the histogram test, raw data
is captured and passed to the PC, where the FFT is performed,
displaying the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), signal-to-noise-anddistortion (SINAD), and total harmonic distortion (THD).
To perform an ac test, do one of the following:
2.
Apply a bipolar sinusoidal signal to the evaluation board at
either VIN-A or VIN-B (Connector J4 or Connector J6
respectively) and feed the biased-up signal from either
VIN-A biased or VIN-B biased (Connector J5 or
Connector J7 respectively) to any analog input, VIN-0
through to VIN-7 (Connector J1, Connector J2, or
Connector J3).
Apply a unipolar sinusoidal signal directly to any analog
input, VIN-0 through to VIN-7.
Figure 20 displays the spectral analysis results of the captured
data.

The plot is the FFT image of the analysis channel selected.
The FFT Analysis panel displays the performance data:
SNR, THD, SINAD, Dynamic Range, and noise
performance along with the input signal characteristics
(see Label 1 in Figure 20).

A low distortion source, better than 115 dB, is required to allow
true evaluation of the device. One possibility is to filter the
input signal from the ac source. There is no suggested bandpass filter, but consideration must be taken in the choice of
filter.
