WILD FMC+ GM61 ADC & DAC – WWGM61

This high density WILD FMC+ GM61 ADC & DAC features Gen 3 Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ RF System-on-Chip (RFSoC) technology. It provides 2 ADC channels and 8 DAC channels.

The GM61 is available for use with Annapolis’ WILDSTAR PCIe and OpenVPX Baseboards. Also designed for standalone use, the GM61 is designed for applications limited by Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C). This WILD FMC+ card operates within a tight envelope; it is slimmer than a 3U OpenVPX board, with about 45% less depth.

The versatile GM61 is ideal for advanced High Performance Computing (HPC), Radar, and Electronic Warfare (EW) applications, including DRFM, beamforming, sensor processing, wireless communication, and radar signal processing.

The GM61’s integrated Xilinx RFSoC combines FPGA processing and A/D and D/A Converters in a single chip, giving the board remarkable density and performance:

  • 2-Channel 4.0-5.0GSps 12/14b ADC
  • 8-Channel 6.4-10.0GSps 14b DAC

Also available:

  • 8 ADC & 2 DAC Channels – WWGM62
  • 4 ADC & 4 DAC Channels – WWGM63

The GM61  provides high fidelity and high speed analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion along with a rugged design.

For large deployments requiring significant processing capability, synchronize multiple RFSoC cards.

The GM61 is shipped with a custom heatsink which enables proper cooling. An on-board temperature monitor is also supplied which allows for real-time monitoring of the RFSoC’s internal die temperature.

The Board Support Interface is available in VHDL or CoreFire Next Application Design Suite.
