Wideband Digitizer/FPGA Co-Processor Module


The XMC-1151 is an ultra high-speed digitizer and processing solution in a VITA 42.3 XMC form factor. The module allows for direct RF-to-digital baseband conversion using a single dual-channel 12-bit ADC running at 1.8 GSPS or 3.6 GSPS when both channels operate together in interleaved mode. The ADC conversion stage is integrated with a Xilinx® Virtex®-6 SX315T or LX240T FPGA device and 1 GB of DDR3 SDRAM for wide bandwidth signal processing and filtering in the digital domain. The module has an 8-lane PCI Express, ANSI/VITA 42.3 host interface providing up to 4 GB/s full duplex to the host.

The XMC-1151 is also available in AMC, VPX, and PC/Server based form factors.
