This high performance WILD FMC+ 8A30 ADC has eight input bandwidth options, internal sample clock options and internal 10MHz reference clock options. This card allows for sixteen ADC channels in one 6U OpenVPX slot (or eight channels for 3U) when plugged into WILDSTAR OpenVPX FPGA mainboards. The WILD FMC+ 8A30 ADC card also has optional speed grades up to 3GSps with a resolution of 14 Bits.

Compatible with any WILDSTAR mainboard with a WILD FMC+ slot.

DEPLOYMENT EXAMPLE: Digital Beamforming Case Study

The WILD FMC+ 8A30 ADC allows sample rates as high as 3GSps and provides eight channels of high speed, precision analog-to-digital converter outputs for a compatible motherboard. It provides excellent analog performance with flexible high-precision trigger options.
