COTS card performs data acquisition, signal processing and storage in XMC form factor
4DSP’s (Austin, TX) FM788 FPGA-based COTS card is designed to perform in a variety of applications, including beamforming, direction finding, RADAR, and satellite communications. This XMC module is based on Xilinx’s Virtex-7 and features eight 16-bit A/D channels running up to 250 Msps each. Its design is said to provids the largest channel count in this frequency range and the most available onboard memory for real-time buffering of large data vectors. With four 10Gbps optical transceivers, the FM788 can be directly connected to aremote storage system without any CPU involvement. With the option to be conduction-cooled, the FM788 features 10GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM that is tightly coupled to the FPGA. The card also has the ability to synchronize signal sampling. Additional features include:
• Coaxial front panel inputs on SSMC connectors.
• Single-ended, AC- or DC-coupled analog input.
• 4x 10Gbps transceivers.
• Flexible clock tree with onboard or external clock.
• Trigger/Sync input.
• PCIe controller: 4- and 8-lane.
