This high performance WILD FMC+ QA30 ADC has four input bandwidth options, internal sample clock options and internal 10MHz reference clock options. This card allows for eight ADC channels in one 6U OpenVPX slot (or four channels for 3U) when plugged into WILDSTAR OpenVPX FPGA mainboards. The WILD FMC+ QA30 ADC card also has optional speed grades up to 3GSps with a resolution of 14 Bits.

Also available: QA31 is a similar narrower-band card that is optimized for analog input frequencies between 1-4GHz.

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

The WILD FMC+ QA30 ADC allows sample rates as high as 3GSps and provides four 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.
