XRM2-ADC-D9/500 - IF/Baseband Signal Sampling


  • IF/Baseband Signal Sampling

Board Features

  • Alpha Data XRM2 I/O Module
  • Dual 14-bit 500Msps ADCs
  • External Clock Input


The XRM-ADC-D9/500 is an XRM2 I/O Module, providing two Analog to Digital converters with 14-bit resolution at sampling rates up to 500Msps.

Aimed at IF/Baseband Signal Sampling, the sampling clock can be sourced from either an external clock source or from a clock generated within the attached FPGA board. An Auxiliary I/O port is provided for use as a trigger input and general purpose signaling. An additional two ports are available for use as high-speed interconnect between boards for synchronisation.
