The FMC300 integrates A/D and D/A conversion in a VITA 57.4-standard form factor, and uses Analog Devices software-defined RF sampling transceivers.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – AMETEK Abaco Systems in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the FMC300 wideband low latency FMC module for software defined radio (SDR), electronic warfare (EW), digital radar, and test and measurement applications.

The FMC300 integrates high-performance A/D and D/A conversion capabilities into a compact VITA 57.4-standard form factor. The FMC uses the Analog Devices AD9082 and AD9081 software-defined direct RF sampling transceivers.

The FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) handles several channels, and offers performance to 12-bit 6-gigasample-per-second RF A/D converter and to 16-bit 12-gigasample-per-second RF D/A converter through a JESD204B/C interface.

This module is for low-latency, high-rate sampling operations in SDR, EW, and digital RF memory (DRFM) systems, and offers 7 GHz usable analog bandwidth.

When paired with Abaco's field-programmable gate array (FPGA) carrier cards, the FMC300 helps solve difficult challenges when designing modern digital signal processing (DSP) embedded computing systems.

The FMC300 offers flexible control options for clock source, sampling frequency, and calibration, as well as individual calibration circuits for gain fine-tuning, offset, phase, and advanced monitoring and power-down modes.
