The FMC220 is an FPGA Mezzanine Module per VITA 57 specification. The FMC220 has dual 12-bit ADC at 1 GSPS (note the inputs for the ADC are DC coupled) and a 16-bit DAC at 6 GSPS (12 GSPS effective, in some modes) with direct RF synthesis and optional Direct Digital Synthesizer. The output from the DAC is AC coupled.
The FMC220 utilizes Analog Devices AD9234 providing dual ADCs with 12-bit conversion at rates of up to 1 GSPS and an Analog Devices AD9162 DAC providing 16-bit conversion at rates of up to 6 GSPS or AD9164 with Direct Digital Synthesizer. The DAC core is based on a quad-switch architecture coupled with a 2x interpolator filter that enables an effective DAC update rate of up to 12 GSPS in some modes. The high dynamic range and bandwidth makes these DACs ideally suited for the most demanding high speed radio frequency (RF) DAC applications.
The analog inputs, clock input and DAC output are routed via SSMC connectors.
