EVM WARNINGS AND RESTRICTIONS

It is important to operate this EVM within the input voltage range of ±15 V and the output voltage range of±10 V.

Exceeding the specified input range may cause unexpected operation and/or irreversible damage to the EVM. If there are questions concerning the input range, please contact a TI field representative prior to connecting the input power.

Applying loads outside of the specified output range may result in unintended operation and/or possible permanent damage to the EVM. Please consult the EVM User’s Guide prior to connecting any load to the EVM output. If there is uncertainty as to the load specification, please contact a TI field representative.

During normal operation, some circuit components may have case temperatures greater than xxx°C. The EVM is designed to operate properly with certain components above xxx°C as long as the input and output ranges are maintained. These components include but are not limited to linear regulators, switching transistors, pass transistors, and current sense resistors. These types of devices can be identified using the EVM schematic located in the EVM User’s Guide. When placing measurement probes near these devices during operation, please be aware that these devices may be very warm to the touch.

EVM Overview

1-1

Features

1.1 Features

This EVM features the DAC7741 digital-to-analogconverter. The DAC7741 EVM is a simple evaluation module designed for a quick and easy way to evaluate the functionality of the high resolution,single-channel,and parallel input DAC. This EVM features a parallel interface to communicate to any host processor base system.

1.2 Power Requirements

The following sections describe the power requirements of this EVM.

1.2.1Supply Voltage

The dc power supply requirement for the digital section of this EVM is typically 5 V connected to the J11-2or viaJ6-2terminal (when plugged in with another EVM board or interface card) and is referenced to ground through theJ11-1andJ6-1terminal. The dc power supply requirement for the analog section (VCC and VSS) of this EVM range from 15.75 V to-15.75V maximum and connects throughJ10-4andJ12-1or throughJ7-6andJ7-8terminals and is referenced to analog ground throughJ10-2,J12-2andJ7-1terminals.

A dc source of ±15 V supply is required to provide the rails for the external output op-ampprovided for output signal conditioning or boost capacitive load drive and for other output modes of application. The 15 V supply connects throughJ10-1orJ7-2terminal, and the–15V supply connects throughJ10-3orJ7-4terminals. The ±15 V supply is referenced to ground throughJ10-2orJ7-3terminals. The supply source for VCC and VSS can also be used as the supply source for 15 V and-15V respectively.

To avoid potential damage to the EVM board, make sure that the correct cables are connected to their respective terminals as labeled on the EVM board.

Stresses above the maximum listed voltage ratings may cause permanent damage to the device.

1.2.2Reference Voltage

Although the DAC7741 has a built-in10-Vvoltage reference, an external reference circuit is provided in the EVM board. The external reference circuit can be isolated if the internal reference voltage is selected.

The 10-Vprecision voltage reference is provided to supply the external voltage reference for the DAC through REF102, U3, via jumper W4 by shorting pins 1 and 2. An adjustable100-kΩpotentiometer, R11, is installed in series with 20 kΩ, R10, to allow the user to adjust the reference voltage to its desired settings. TP1 and TP2 are also provided, as well asJ4-20,to allow the user to connect other external reference source if the onboard reference circuit is not desired. The external voltage reference should not exceed10-Vdc.
