Wideband Digital Receiver/Digitizer Module




The VPX-1151 is an ultra high-speed digitizer and processing solution that enables direct RF-to-Digital conversion between 100 MHz and 3 GHz. Features one 3.6 GSPS 12-bit ADC channel (or two channels at 1.8 GSPS), or an alternative build option of one 3.2 GSPS 12-bit ADC channel (or two channels at 1.6 GSPS). Also features a Xilinx® Virtex®-6 SX315T or LX240T User FPGA.

It complies with OpenVPX (VITA 65), the architecture framework that defines system-level VPX interoperability for multivendor, multimodule systems.
