4DSP PC760

The PC760 utilizes a well-proven and widely adopted PCIe carrier configuration with the highest throughput A/D-D/A capability in the embedded market.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 30, 2014

4DSP today announced the release of a new PCI Express product featuring the Xilinx Kintex-7 combined with the highest performance analog I/O card available in the marketplace. With a single-channel 3.6Gsps A/D and single-channel 5.6Gsps D/A combined with state-of-the-art FPGA technology, the PC760 is a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) card that features advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) capabilities. It is designed for a variety of applications, including Software Defined Radio and Baseband Communication Transceivers. The PC760 is an excellent choice for applications that require large-band signal digitization or generation through the use of accelerated frequency-domain algorithms.

“The PC760 utilizes a well-proven and widely adopted PCIe carrier configuration with the highest throughput A/D-D/A capability in the embedded market,” said Arnaud Maye, 4DSP Software Manager. “4DSP customers can build incredibly powerful and scalable systems using the PC760. For example, multiple PC760s in a 16 slot PCIe chassis can offer 16 channels of 3.6Gsps analog-to-digital and 5.6Gsps of digital-to-analog throughput. In addition, each chassis can be a node in a much larger system if required, giving users the ability to scale,” he added.

“With the unrivaled DSP processing bandwidth of Xilinx 7 series FPGAs, the PC760 is an excellent solution for the broad range of wideband data acquisition applications within the Avnet customer base,” said Luc Langlois, Avnet’s Director of Global Technical Marketing. The PC760 marks the second in a series of 4DSP PCIe FPGA cards released in 2014 which offer onboard I/O and are ready to use right out of the box to enable efficiencies that speed design to production times for both the industrial and defense markets.
