4 Channel 200 MHz 16-bit A/D with Virtex-7 FPGA VPX Onyx™ Board (Model 53760)

VME bus Variant: VPX
Compatible Operating Systems: Windows, Linux, VxWorks
Compatible Architecture: XMC, cPCI, PCIe, Rugged

Model 53760 is a member of the Onyx™ family of high performance 3U VPX boards based on the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA. A multichannel, high-speed data converter, it is suitable for connection to HF or IF ports of a communications or radar system. Its built-in data capture features offer an ideal turnkey solution as well as a platform for developing and deploying custom FPGA processing IP.

The 53760 includes four A/Ds and four banks of memory. It features built-in support for PCI Express Gen. 3 over the 3U VPX backplane.

As the central feature of the board architecture, the FPGA has access to all data and control paths, enabling factoryinstalled functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering and memory control. The Onyx Architecture organizes the FPGA as a container for data processing applications where each function exists as an intellectual property (IP) module.

Each member of the Onyx family is delivered with factory- installed applications ideally matched to the board’s analog interfaces. The 53760 factory-installed functions include four A/D acquisition IP modules for simplifying data capture and data tranfer. IP modules for DDR3 SDRAM memories, a controller for all data clocking and synchronization functions, a test signal generator, and a PCIe interface complete the factory-installed functions and enable the 53760 to operate as a complete turnkey solution without the need to develop any FPGA IP. Users can install their own custom IP for data processing.
