FMC - FPGA Mezzanine Card

RF transceiver FMC 0.4-3.0GHz*
FMC-LPC VITA 57.1 Compliant

*The FMC30RF is available with two different receiver ranges: 400MHz to 1.2GHz or 1.2GHz to 3.0GHz. See ordering information.


  • Description

      The FMC30RF is an FMC Daughter Card which is fully compliant with the VITA 57.1-2010 standard. The FMC30RF offers in a small footprint a low power and fully featured Rx / Tx signal path for the development and deployment of advanced RF solutions. With a frequency range coverage from 400MHz to 3.0GHz* and up to 60MHz* bandwidth the FMC30RF provides flexibility and reconfigurability to a host of applications.

      Based on Texas Instruments RF technology the FMC30RF comprises of a dual DAC Tx IQ modulator, a dual ADC Rx IQ demodulator with PGA and LNA front-end and on-board clocking with integrated PLL/VCO. The FMC30RF allows flexible control on sampling frequency 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.

      * Bandwidth is limited to 30MHz when the TRF3711 Low Pass Filter is not bypassed.
