Enlisting the latest Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA, the ICS-1572A ADC/DAC transceiver XMC module delivers 16-bit data acquisition at rates to 250 MHz.

Enlisting the latest Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA, the ICS-1572A ADC/DAC transceiver XMC module delivers 16-bit data acquisition at rates to 250 MHz. The module packs two 16-bit ADCs sampling synchronously at frequencies up to 250 MHz and two 16-bit DACs at up to 500 MHz. The ADC input pass band is 4.5 to 800 MHz at 3 dB to allow for under-sampling applications. A Xilinx Virtex-6 LX240T FPGA is for user-defined signal processing functions and it also provides a PCI Express interface to the host system. Other protocols are available upon request.
