As data-conversion circuits have sped up over the years, the current serial interfaces haven’t been able to keep pace. But a new interface has arrived, called JESD204C. It’s the next iteration of the JESD interface standards. This article introduces JESD204C, explains its features and benefits, and highlights the differences with its predecessor JESD204B.
JESD204C is a standard of the Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC). It’s a high-speed interface designed to interconnect fast analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters (DACs) to high-speed processors, FPGAs, and ASICs.
