Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI), a global leader in high-performance signal processing technology, released today an FPGA-based reference design with software and HDL code that reduces the design risk of high-speed systems incorporating JESD204B-compatible converters. Called the JESD204B Xilinx Transceiver Debug Tool, it supports the 312.5-Mbps to 12.5-Gbps JESD204B data converter-to-FPGA serial data interface and Xilinx® Inc., 7 series FPGAs and Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs. It is available at no cost with ADI converters and provides an on-chip, 2-D statistical eyescan that helps designers of radar arrays, software-defined radio and other high-speed systems more quickly verify the signal integrity of JESD204B data converter-to-FPGA designs using gigabit transceivers.

‘Live’ Data Capture Monitors Equipment HealthAlternative scanning tools typically measure high-speed data links by generating a pseudo-random bit stream (PRBS) that is checked for bit-level correctness in a closed development environment. This approach does not describe how well the design is performing or if it might be on the verge of failure. ADI’s reference design measures link robustness using actual JESD204B serial data running to the FPGA. This use of “live” data enables signal fidelity to be monitored even after the design has been deployed in the field, which allows for real-time and predictive maintenance over the life of the product.
