  • RF Signal Sampling/Generation

Board Features

  • Dual 12-bit 6Gsps ADCs
  • Dual 12-bit 6Gsps DACs
  • External Clock Input
  • Alpha Data XRM2 I/O Module


The XRM2-RF-ATD is an XRM2 I/O module, providing two full duplex RF channels at center frequencies between 70 MHz and 6 GHz. Intended for use in FPGA-based general-purpose radio systems.

This board provides Frac-N based synthesis of local oscillator signals for up/down conversion, digital filtering and 12-bit quantization of baseband data.

Channel bandwidths are software selectable from 200 kHz to 56 MHz. Real-time monitor signals, control signals for manual and automatic gain control and base-band synchronization of multiple devices are supported. The application can use either the internal clock or an externally provided clock source.
