Pentek has introduced a member of its Onyx family of XMC (express mezzanine card) modules. The model 71760, four-channel, 16bit, 200MHz ADC XMC module is based on the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA family. The XMC module has high memory capacity, good logic performance and I/O bandwidth. The module and is suitable for unmanned aerial vehicles, radar and communications. The XMC module also features an external sample clock synchronisation and a VITA 42.0 XMC-compatible switched fabric interface. The DDR3 memory of XMC module features a size and speed of 4Gbyte and 1600MHz, respectively. The module's PCIe interface has been upgraded to Gen 3, delivering peak speeds up to 8Gbyte/s. The FPGA is available pre-configured with a suite of built-in functions for data capture, synchronisation, tagging and formatting, making the XMC module a suitable turn-key interface for radar, communications or general data acquisitions. For systems that require custom functions, IP can be developed using the Xilinx ISE design software and the company's GateFlow FPGA design kit. The Onyx architecture includes enhanced FPGA loading modes to simplify live reconfiguration, according to the company.
