HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the FMC134 FMC+ FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) direct RF conversion module for wide-bandwidth multi-channel receivers in modern radar systems.

The FMC134 is suited for applications including traditional and bi-static radar; multi-channel radar; digital beamforming; wideband receivers; wireless communication SDR; and signals intelligence receivers.

The card brings A/D converter performance and density, and can operate as a 4-channel receiver at 3.2 gigasamples per second or a 2-channel receiver at 6.4 gigasamples per second.

Using 16 of the available 32 high-speed JESD204B lanes, the FMC134 is capable of a total maximum transfer rate of 200 gigabits per second, and is compliant with the VITA 57.4 standard for compatibility and interoperability across different FPGA carriers.

The JESD204B core is available as part of the FMC134 board support package, and this works out of the box when used in combination with an Abaco FPGA carrier card.

The FMC134 includes two reference outputs and an external trigger input for multi-board synchronization. For more information contact Abaco Systems online at www.abaco.com.
