Cyclone V GX Starterkit & Terasic Highspeed AD/DA Daughter card

Hi everybody, 

 

i've purchased a Cyclone V GX Starterkit (http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?language=english&categoryno=167&no=830) and the highspeed AD/DA daughter card (http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?language=english&categoryno=73&no=278). It seems that the HSMC Connector pinout seems to be wrong. I just cant get the DA/AD-Converters working. If anyone already has some experience with this combination, please tell me if the boards are compatible at all. In their descriptions its says their compatible with each other coards that feautre the HSMC-Interface. I'm working on an simple OFDM-Transcieverdesign and want to use these boards for AD/DA-Conversion of OFDM-Symbols. 

 

With kind regards,

Problem solved by myself, 

 

the pinout in the shematics is wrong. I had to use the UserGuide. There you can find a correct table with the pimapping of the HSMC-Connector. AD/DA-Card is now working fine. 

 

Thanks,

Hi M4PP3t, 

could you post or explain how you finally obtain properly the pin assigment between both devices. I'm manage to create a 64QAM in the Cyclone V gx Starter Kit and I don't find the way to obtain the pins to show the output in a oscilloscope.

Hi, 

 

the thread is quite old but here a more detailed solution that i used back then. I used the pin-description in the userguide of the AD/DA-Card from terasic. Here is the link: http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive_download.pl?language=english&no=278&fid=7d33a4a8e787c... 

 

In this document there is the right description of the pinout. I hope this will help you out. 

 

With kind regards,
