WILDSTAR Clock Distribution Module – WP9CC0

The WILDSTAR™ Clock Distribution Module allows for synchronization of up to 12 Backplanes worth of ADC/DAC WFMC+. It provides the capability to synchronize up to 960 ADC/DAC channels, utilizing 12 Radial Clock Distribution Boards and 240 Quad Channel ADC/DAC WFMC+.

The WILDSTAR Clock Distribution Module allows for synchronization of up to 12 Backplanes worth of ADC/DAC WFMC+, with 12 differential clock outputs, 12 single-ended trigger outputs, and optional 20 single-ended reference clock outputs.

The Module is powered by a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC CG Motherboard Controller.

It is designed for a standard 19″ rack and supported for air- or conduction-cooled environments.
