FMC-HPC Digital-to-Analog Converter Board
Four Channel 16-bit D/A @ 1 GSPS
FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant

FMC204

  • Description

      The FMC204 is a quad channel DAC FMC. The FMC204 provides four channels of 16-bit D/A @ 1 GSPS enabling simultaneous sampling at a maximum rate of 1 GSPS.The sample clock can be supplied externally through a coax connection or supplied by an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference).Additionally a trigger input for customized sampling control is available.The FMC204 daughter card is mechanically and electrically compliant to FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1). The card has a high-pin count (HPC) connector, front panel I/O, and can be used in a conduction cooled environment as well as a conventionally (air) cooled environment.The FMC204 allows flexible control on clock source, sampling frequency, and calibration through an I2C communication bus. The FMC204 card is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring with several power-down modes to switch off unused functions, reducing system level power and heat, well suited for software defined radio (SDR), battery or other low power source applications.This is ideal for applications such as airborne where power demand effects mission range and on-station mission time.
