New Dual D/A Converter From VadaTech Features High Sampling Rate and Kintex-7 FPGA

The AMC523 is a dual DAC at 250 Mega Samples Per Second (MSPS) at 16-bit resolution. It comes in a double module, mid-size (full-size is optional) and routes x8 or dual x4 PCIe to the backplane. The module features a Kintex-7 FPGA with 2 GB of DDR3 memory, allowing for large buffer sizes to be storing during processing and queueing data to the host.

Embedded World – VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, now offers a dual Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) compliant to the MicroTCA.4 specification for High Energy Physics.
