FMC151 DC Coupled Low Pin Count FMC ADC/DAC Card; Dual 14-bit A/D & Dual 16-bit D/A

FMC151 – DC Coupled Dual channel 14-bit 250Msps A/D; Dual channel 16-bit 800Msps D/A; FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant

“4DSP FMCs have proven to be an effective high performance I/O solution,” said Luc Langlois, Technical Marketing Director for Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc.

4DSP announced today the release of a new DC Coupled analog-to-digital/digital-to-analog card based on the FPGA Mezzanine Card standard (FMC – VITA 57.1) for multi-channel data acquisition and high-speed signal processing and recording.

The FMC151, a wideband transceiver solution, provides two channels of 14-bit A/D at 250Msps and two channels of 16-bit D/A at 800Msps. The design is based on TI’s ADS62P49 ADC and TI’s DAC3283 DAC. The analog signal inputs are DC coupled connecting to MMCX/SSMC coax connectors on the front panel and the input. The input and output have digitally controlled offset correction.

The FMC151 allows flexible control on clock source, analog input gain, and offset correction through serial communication busses. Furthermore the card is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring and offers several power-down modes to switch off unused functions, reducing system level power and heat. The FMC151 is well suited for Software Defined Radio (SDR), battery or other low power source applications. The FMC151 is ideal for applications where power demand impacts operational range and time.

“The FMC151 is a market driven extension of 4DSP’s widely adopted FMC150 and offers high performance, high bandwidth signal acquisition capabilities,” said Mike Pochkowski, Director of Marketing and Business Development at 4DSP in Austin. “4DSP has delivered over 2000 FMC150 cards through direct sales and channel partners as well as through our partnership with Avnet and it’s this worldwide adoption that has driven the need to release a DC Coupled version, the FMC151.”

“4DSP FMCs have proven to be an effective high performance I/O solution,” said Luc Langlois, Technical Marketing Director for Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. “Engineers looking to shorten development time can pair these with Avnet’s Xilinx development kits such as the ML605, KC705, ZC706, VC707, VC709 or the ZedBoard and quickly bring their products to market.”

The FMC VITA 57.1 standard offers the combination of low latency and high bandwidth with a high level of ruggedization at an acceptable price point and a non-proprietary interface. The result is a wide and growing adoption of FPGA mezzanine cards across various industries.
