I am preparing the power supplies. For the digital part of the DAC (+/- 3.3 to +/- 5v), the clean side of the FIFO (3.3 to 5V) of the DRIXO (12-18V) is there any advantage for any particular voltage in those ranges?
I will be using the UltraBib 1.3 and while it can be brought down to 3.3v with special parts, it is easier to get 5v. So If there is no penalty, I wold go with 5v for the first two. For the last I can aim at whatever voltage in the rage, buy I have to take into account the transformers sec. VAC.
For Vref I will also use the Ultrabib, but in this case I might have to do down to +/-3.3V because of my systems gain structure (not yet sure on this).
