Maxim Integrated’s powerful and easy-to-use GUI simplifies designs for precision signal chain applications.
FPGA engineers can quickly evaluate and validate their FPGA-based control systems and get to market faster, using the high-speed MAXREFDES74# 18-bit data acquisition system (DAS) reference design from Maxim Integrated Products.
Achieving high-precision, high-speed digital control loops is a challenge for designers. But now the MAXREFDES74# DAS provides an 18-bit acquisition analog input and output front end for applications demanding high precision and high-speed data conversion based on FPGA digital processing. The MAXREFDES74# plugs directly into a standard FPGA I/O expansion (FMC) and is fully equipped with complete hardware, firmware for Zynq FPGAs, Maxim’s easy-to-use PC-GUI, and Gerber files.
The MAXREFDES74# is a ready-made solution for analog inputs and outputs built for FPGA-based systems. It is flexible and applicable for a wide range of industrial and medical applications, including test and measurement, instrumentation, industrial automation and process control markets.
