Virtex-7, eight channel, 16-bit, 250MSPS A/D Conversion, XMC form factor

Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 03, 2014

4DSPs new FM788 is a FPGA-based COTS card designed to deliver unparalleled performance for a variety of applications, including beamforming, direction finding, RADAR, and satellite communications. This XMC module is based on Xilinxs Virtex-7 and features eight 16-bit A/D channels running up to 250Msps each. Its design provides the largest channel count in this frequency range and the most available onboard memory for real-time buffering of large data vectors. With four 10Gbps optical transceivers, the FM788 can be directly connected to a remote storage system without any CPU involvement.

This approach of offering a way to digitize multiple analog channels, perform signal processing using the Virtex-7 and offload data to a storage system using optical connections on a single card overcomes the inherent limitations of bussed architectures, said Pierrick Vulliez. The FM788 provides predictable performance in a small form factor and reduces overall system power consumption.

With the option to be conduction-cooled, the FM788 features 10GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM that is tightly coupled to the FPGA. The card also has the ability to synchronize signal sampling, making it an excellent choice for large channel count data acquisition.
