QUICK START PROCEDURE
Demonstration circuit 1620A is easy to set up to evaluate
the performance of the LTC2185/LTC2145 A/D converter
family. Refer to Figure 1 for proper measurement equipment setup and follow the procedure below:
Setup
If a DC890 USB data acquisition and collection system
was supplied with the DC1620A demonstration circuit,
follow the DC890 Quick Start Guide to install the required
software and for connecting the DC890 to the DC1620A
and to a PC.
DC1620A Demonstration Circuit Board Jumpers
The DC1620A demonstration circuit board should have
the following jumper settings as default positions: (as
per Figure 1)
JP2-PAR/SER: Selects Parallel or Serial programming
mode. (Default: Serial)
JP3-Duty Cycle Stabilizer: Enables/Disable Duty Cycle
Stabilizer. (Default: Enable)
JP4-SHDN: Enables and disables the LTC2185/LTC2145.
(Default: Enable)
JP5-NAP: Enables and disables NAP mode (Default:
disable)
JP6-LVDS/CMOS: Selects between LVDS and CMOS output
signaling. (Default: LVDS)
Applying Power and Signals to the DC1620A
Demonstration Circuit
If a DC890 is used to acquire data from the DC1620A, the
DC890 must first be connected to a powered USB port
or provided an external 6V to 9V before applying +4.5V
to +6.0V across the pins marked V+ and GND on the
DC1620A. DC1620A requires 4.5V for proper operation.
Regulators on the board produce the voltages required for
the ADC. The DC1620A demonstration circuit requires up
to 500mA depending on the sampling rate and the A/D
converter supplied.
The DC890 data collection board is powered by the USB
cable and does require an external power supply when
collecting data from an LVDS demo board. It must be
supplied from an external 6V to 9V on turrets G7(+) and
G1(–) or the adjacent 2.1mm power jack.

Analog Input Network
For optimal distortion and noise performance, the RC
network on the analog inputs may need to be optimized
for different analog input frequencies. For input frequencies above 140MHz, refer to the respective ADC data sheet
for a proper input network. Other input networks may be
more appropriate for input frequencies less that 5MHz or
above 140MHz.
In almost all cases, filters will be required on both analog
the input and encode clock to provide data sheet SNR. In
the case of the DC1620A a bandpass filter used for the clock
should be used prior to the DC1075 clock divider board.
The filters should be located close to the inputs to avoid
reflections from impedance discontinuities at the driven
end of a long transmission line. Most filters do not present
50Ω outside the passband. In some cases, 3dB to 10dB
pads may be required to obtain low distortion.
If your generator cannot deliver full-scale signals without
distortion, you may benefit from a medium power amplifier
based on a Gallium Arsenide gain block prior to the final
filter. This is particularly true at higher frequencies where
IC-based operational amplifiers may be unable to deliver
the combination of low noise figure and high IP3 point
required. A high order filter can be used prior to this final
amplifier, and a relatively lower Q filter used between the
amplifier and the demo circuit.
Encode Clock
Note: Apply an encode clock to the SMA connector on
the DC1620A demonstration circuit board marked J3.
As a default, the DC1620A is populated to have a singleended input.
For the best noise performance, the encode input must
be driven with a very low jitter, square wave source. The
amplitude should be large, up to 3VP-P or 13dBm. When
using a sinusoidal signal generator a squaring circuit can
be used. Linear Technology also provides demo board
DC1075 that divides a high frequency sine wave by four,
producing a low jitter square wave for best results with
the LTC2185/LTC2145.
dc1620afb

DEMO MANUAL DC1620A
QUICK START PROCEDURE
Using bandpass filters on the clock and the analog input
will improve the noise performance by reducing the
wideband noise power of the signals. In the case of the
DC1620A a bandpass filter used for the clock should be
used prior to the DC1075. Data sheet FFT plots are taken
with 10-pole LC filters made by TTE (Los Angeles, CA) to
suppress signal generator harmonics, non-harmonically
related spurs and broadband noise. Low phase noise Agilent
8644B generators are used with TTE bandpass filters for
both the clock input and the analog input.
Apply the analog input signal of interest to the SMA connectors on the DC1620A demonstration circuit board
marked J5 AIN+. These inputs are capacitive coupled to
Balun transformers ETC1-1-13 (lead free part number:
MABA007159-000000).
An internally generated conversion clock output is available
on J1 which could be collected via a logic analyzer, or other
data collection system if populated with a SAMTEC MEC8150 type connector or collected by the DC890 QuikEval™-II
data acquisition board using PScope™ software.

Software
Bipolar: Unchecked
The DC890 is controlled by the PScope system software
provided or downloaded from the Linear Technology
website at http://www.linear.com/software/. If a DC890
was provided, follow the DC890 Quick Start Guide and
the instructions below.
Positive-Edge Clk: Checked
To start the data collection software if “PScope.exe” is
installed (by default) in \Program Files\LTC\PScope\, double
click the PScope icon or bring up the run window under
the start menu and browse to the PScope directory and
select PScope.
If the DC1620A demonstration circuit is properly connected
to the DC890, PScope should automatically detect the
DC1620A, and configure itself accordingly. If necessary
the procedure below explains how to manually configure
PScope.
Under the Configure menu, go to ADC Configuration. Check
the Config Manually box and use the following configuration options, see Figure 2:
If everything is hooked up properly, powered, and a suitable
convert clock is present, clicking the Collect button will
result in time and frequency plots displayed in the PScope
window. Additional information and help for PScope is
available in the DC890 Quick Start Guide and in the online
help available within the PScope program itself.
Serial Programming
PScope has the ability to program the DC1620A board
serially through the DC890. There are several options
available in the LTC2185 family that are only available
through serially programming. PScope allows all of these
features to be tested.
These options are available by first clicking on the Set
Demo Bd Options icon on the PScope toolbar (Figure 3).
