I have a little bit of experience with PCB design and made a couple of small circuits for learning purposes.
I need to test out a new PCB designed by another person and its kind of a complicated board with a ton of components on it. It consists of an ADC and an FPGA and other components that go along with it. It's really similar to TI's LM97600RB Reference Board and was based off that design.
The board was incomplete and I managed to solder what was left however, I have little to no experience on how to test it out.
- Are there any guidelines I can use in order to test the board and the components on it ?
- Do I test the FPGA separately first?
- Would it be possible to just test the ADC separately ?
