LINK AND SWITCH OPTIONS
There are a number of link options on the evaluation board which should be set for the required operating setup before using
the evaluation board. The functions of these link options are outlined below.
Link No.
Function.
LK1-LK8
These link options are used to select the input source for the eight buffer amplifiers.
With these links in position A, the input to the respective buffer amplifier is connected to the associated AINX
input socket.
With these links in position B, the input to the respective buffer amplifier is connected to AGND.
LK9
This link option is in series with the AIN1 input of the AD7858.
With this link in place, the output of the amplifier A1 is connected directly to the AIN1 input.
When this link is not in place, the output of A1 is disconnected from AIN1. This is useful in association
with LK10 and LK11 in looking at the performance of the AD7858 with input shorted to ground especially
in differential mode where AIN1 and AIN2 form a differential pair. LK9 should not be in place if both LK10
and LK11 are in place (LK11 either position A or B).
LK10
This link option connects the AIN1 and AIN2 inputs of the AD7858 together.
With this link in place, the AIN1 and AIN2 inputs are connected together. LK10 should not be in place if
both LK9 and LK11 are in place (LK11 either position A or B).
When generating AIN1 from A1 and AIN2 from A2, this link should not be in place.
LK11
This link option is in series with AIN2 input of the AD7858.
With this link in position A, the output of the buffer amplifier A2 is connected directly to the AIN2 input.
With this link in position B, the AIN2 input is connected to AGND.
LK11 should not be in place if both LK9 and LK10 are in place.
LK12
This link option determines the output voltage from the AD780.
With this link in position, the reference voltage output from the AD780 is +3V.
With this link unconnected, the reference voltage output from the AD780 is +2.5V.
LK13
This link option selects the reference source for the AD7858 and for the bias circuit.
With this link in position, the reference source is the AD780 output voltage.
With this link unconnected, the reference source is the internal reference of the AD7858.
This link option adds a 50termination to AGND at the VIN socket. In most applications this link will be
LK14
left unconnected.
If a 50termination is required this link should be connected. Care must be taken when connecting this link
in case the signal source driving the VIN socket cannot drive a 50load.
When the signal source driving the VIN socket has a 50ouput impedance it may be advantageous to connect
this link to give the correct termination to AGND.
LK15
This link option is used to select between normal mode operation and sleep mode depending on the status
of the PMGT bits of the Control Register.
With this link in position A, the SLEEP pin is tied to a logic high and normal operation results.
?2?
REVB
EVAL-AD7858CB
With this link in position B, the SLEEP pin is tied to a logic low and the part is put into sleep mode.
LK16
This link option is in series with the BUSY output to the 96-way connector.
This link has the function of connecting the BUSY output to the 96-way connector.
This link option adds a 50termination to DGND to the CONVST line.
LK17
This link option should be unconnected when using the CONVST from the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD.
If a 50termination is required when using an external CONVST signal this link should be connected.
This link option adds a 50termination to DGND to the CLKIN line.
LK18
This link option should be unconnected when using the CLKIN from the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD.
If a 50termination is required when using an external CLKIN signal this link should be connected.
LK19
This link option is in series with the SCLK1 input from the 96-way connector. When using the EVAL-
CONTROL BOARD this input  supplies the clock signal for the CLKIN input of the AD7858.
This link should be connected when using the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD and no external CLKIN signal.
This link should be unconnected when using an external CLKIN signal.
LK20
This link option is in series with the FL0 input from the 96-way connector. When using the EVAL-
CONTROL BOARD this input can be used to supply the conversion start signal for the CONVST input
of the AD7858.
This link should be connected when using the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD and no external CONVST
signal.
This link should be unconnected when using an external CONVST signal.
LK21
This link option is used to tie the DIN pin to DGND or to connect it to the 96-way connector.
In position A, the DIN pin is connected to the 96-way connector and writting to the part can take place.
In position B, the DIN pin is tied to DGND and there will be no writing to the part.
When using the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD this link should be in position A.
LK22
Determines the source for the +12V required by the evaluation board.
With this link in position A, the +12V must be supplied externally at the +12V power supply terminal
connector.
With this link in position B, the +12V is supplied from the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD.
LK23
Determines the source for the -12V required by the evaluation board.
With this link in position A, the -12V must be supplied externally at the -12V power supply terminal
connector.
With this link in position B, the -12V is supplied from the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD.
LK24
This link must be unconnected if an external supply is used. This link option is used to select between an
external VDD supply and the VDD supply from the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD. The VDD supplies the AVDD
and the DVDD for the AD7858 and the VCC for the 74HC04.
With this link connected, the VDD is supplied from the EVAL-CONTROL BOARD. If this link is connected
an external supply must not be connected to the VDD power supply terminal connector.
With this link unconnected, the VDD must be supplied externally at the VDD power supply terminal connector.

SET-UP CONDITIONS
Care should be taken before applying power and signals to the evaluation board to ensure that all link positions are as per the
required operating mode. Table I shows the position in which all the links are set when the evaluation board is sent out. These
