The VPX588 provides quad ADC with sample rates of up to 3 GSPS (AD9208) at 14-bits, quad DAC (Analog Devices AD9162 or AD9164) with update rates of up to 12 GSPS and direct RF synthesis at 6 GSPS,16-bits. This makes the unit suitable for signal capture/analysis applications such as COMINT/SIGINT, radar, research and instrumentation.
VPX588 has an on-board, re-configurable UltraScale+™ XCVU13P FPGA which interfaces directly to ADC/DAC.
The FPGA has interface to a single bank of DDR4 memory channels (64-bit wide for a total of 8 GB). This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host. The VPX588 comes with 10 HP panel size (it will occupy two slots in a chassis).
