FMC-520 Quad 550MSPS/Dual 1GSPS 16b DAC FMC

The inventive design of the FMC-520, which conforms to the VITA 57 FMC standard, simplifies developers’ integration of FPGAs and analog output into their embedded system designs. Depending on the selected rate of output conversion, the FMC-520 combines two or four channels of analog output in embedded computing systems. Typical digital signal processing applications supported by the FMC-520 module include Signal Intelligence (SIGINT), Software Radio, Electronic Warfare (EW), Radar and Electronic Counter Measures (ECM).

The VITA 57 specification enables direct coupling of I/O devices to a host FPGA. The two dual-channel DAC devices of the FMC-520 maximize data throughput and minimize latency as they connect through the high-bandwidth FMC connector to an FPGA-based host board. The FMC-520 is made for platforms that provide Xilinx® Virtex®-5 FPGA processor nodes, such as the FPE320 and HPE720.

Using MMCX-type front panel connectors, the FMC-520 supports four analog outputs. The outputs are 50 Ω single-ended, transformer coupled. The DACs can operate synchronously, as the analog signal paths of the DAC outputs are matched to within 4 ps. The maximum analog output voltage is 1.0 Vpp.

The FMC-520 features an onboard programmable VCXO, with the following frequency ranges: 10 MHz to 945 MHZ, 970 MHz to 1134 MHz and 1213 MHz to 1417.5 MHz. Through the module’s external clock input connector, the onboard clock can be locked to an external 10 MHz reference.
