Rugged ADC FMC Module Handles DSP Applications

The ADC511 is a 400-Msample/s, 14-bit, dual-channel analog-to-digital converter FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC/VITA 57). Designed for DSP applications such as signal intelligence, electronic countermeasures, and radar, the module eliminates data bottlenecks by routing high-speed the ADC’s I/O directly to the host board’s FPGAs via the FMA connector. Available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled rugged versions, the ADC511 has two onboard 14-bit, 400-MHz Texas Instruments ADS5474 ADCs. Each ADC supports a sampling rate up to 400 Msamples/s, within an analog bandwidth of greater than 1.7 GHz. By routing the ADC device interfaces directly to the FMC connector, the ADC511 enables an FPGA on the host board to directly control and receive data. The module offers a choice of sample clock sources, including an onboard source that supports sampling rates of 300, 320 and 400 Msamples/s, as well as the ability to use an external sample clock. Input and output triggers are provided, enabling the number of input channels to be increased by synchronizing multiple ADC511 modules. Pricing starts at $5000, with availability during Q2 2009.
