The FMC204 is a quad channel DAC FMC. It provides four channels of 16-bit D/A at 1Gsps, enabling simultaneous sampling at a maximum rate of 1Gsps.
The sample clock can be supplied externally through a coax connection or supplied by an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference). Additionally, a trigger input for customized sampling control is available.
The FMC204 daughter card is mechanically and electrically compliant with FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1).
The card has a high-pin count (HPC) connector, front panel I/O, and can be used in a conduction cooled environment as well as a conventionally (air) cooled environment.
The FMC204 allows flexible control of clock source, sampling frequency, and calibration through an I2C communication bus.
The card is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring with several power-down modes to switch off unused functions, reducing system level power and heat, well suited for software defined radio (SDR), battery or other low power source applications. This is ideal for applications such as airborne where power demand affects mission range and on-station mission time.
