The EVAL-AD5600PMDZ interfaces to the USB port of a PC via a System Demonstration Platform (SDP) Board, such as the EVAL-SDP-CB1Z, and the SDP-PMD-IB1Z PMOD to SDP Interposer Board. The EVAL-AD5600PMDZ uses the ACE (Analysis Control Evaluation) evaluation software, a desktop software application that allows the evaluation and control of multiple development tools. The ACE software is available for download from the Analog Devices Inc. website. A Peripheral Module (PMOD) connection is also available to allow the connection of microcontrollers to the evaluation board without the SDP board. Note that when a microcontroller is used through the PMOD connection, the SDP board must be disconnected, and the user is unable to use the ACE software.
