Mezzanine Cards

WILDSTAR Mezzanine Cards are designed from the ground up for superior density and analog performance. WFMC+ -enabled cards include 32 high speed serial lanes and 100 LVDS lines to accommodate even the most bandwidth-hungry ADC or DACs.

All Annapolis ADC/DAC boards deliver world class performance, allow for synchronization across multiple cards, and can accept external clock and trigger. Some cards also have on-board (internal) clocking options.

WILDSTAR ADC mezzanine cards provide high fidelity and high speed analog-to-digital conversion along with a rugged design.




WILDSTAR DAC mezzanine cards provides multiple channels of high speed, precision digital-to-analog converter outputs to a compatible motherboard. They provide excellent analog performance with flexible high-precision trigger options.



Ultra-Low Latency DRFM-Optimized Mezzanine Cards have been designed from the ground up for latency sensitive DRFM applications. This interface provides a Digital Bypass Mode to achieve the lowest possible latency and a Fabric Space Mode to allow the user to do additional processing and manipulation of the ADC data before returning it out the DAC.
