The Altera JESD204B IP core is a high-speed point-to-point serial interface for digital-to-analog (DAC) or analog-to-digital (ADC) converters to transfer data to or from the FPGA devices. The JESD204B IP core is part of the MegaCore IP Library, which is distributed with the Quartus® II software and downloadable from the Altera website.
This reference design demonstrates the JESD204B IP core operating as part of a system that includes:
The key feature of this reference design is the software-based control flow that utilizes the Nios II processor control unit. The reference design utilizes the Arria 10 FPGA Development Kit to interoperate with the Analog Devices (ADI) AD9680 ADC daughter card connected to the development board.
