Four 310 MSPS 16-bit A/D with PLL & Timing Controls

FMC-310 card


The FMC-310 is a high speed digitizing FMC module featuring four 310 MSPS A/D channels supported by sample clock and triggering features. Analog inputs may be either AC or DC coupled. Receiver IF frequencies of up to 300 MHz are supported in the standard model. The sample clock is from either an ultra-low-jitter PLL or external inputs. Multiple cards can be synchronized for sampling.

Typical FMC-310 power consumption is 8.8W for typical AC coupled operation (10.8W typ. DC). The module may be conduction cooled using provided interfaces, which, while electrically isolated from circuit ground consistent with the FMC standard, connect the printed circuit board to thermal interfaces on both sides of the FMC-310 providing better and more thermal interfaces. Also the shielded circuits’ shield (top removed in the above image) are thermally connected to the enclosed circuits, grounded, and can be used for heat management.
Ruggedization levels for wide-temperature operation from -40 to 85C operation and 0.1 g2/Hz vibration. Conformal coating is available.

Support logic in VHDL is provided for integration with FPGA carrier cards. Specific support for Innovative carrier cards includes integration with Framework Logic tools that support VHDL/Verilog and Matlab developers. The Matlab BSP supports real-time hardware-inthe-loop development using the graphical block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator for the FMC integrated with the FPGA carrier card.

Software tools for Innovative carrier cards include host development include C libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux. Application examples demonstrating the module features are provided.
