VMETRO (Houston, TX) has released a FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC/VITA 57) module. The ADC510, available in air-cooled and conduction- cooled rugged versions, integrates two 12-bit 500MHz A/D chips for use in DSP applications such as signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic counter measures (ECM), and radar. This design, based on the emerging VITA 57.1 standard, makes it easier for developers to integrate FPGAs into their embedded system designs.
The ADC510 supports two Texas Instruments ADS5463 ADC devices, with each device supporting a sampling rate up to 500 MSPS and providing 12-bits of digital output. The ADC device interfaces are routed to the FMC connector to enable an FPGA on a baseboard to directly control and receive data. There is a choice of sample clock sources for the ADC510 including an onboard source that supports sampling rates of 300, 320, 400, and 500 MSPS as well as the ability to utilize an external sample clock. Input and output triggers are provided to enable multiple ADC510 modules to be synchronized to increase the number of input channels.
