FMC161 – Dual channel 12-bit 1.8GSPS ADC / Single channel 12-bit 3.6GSPS ADC | HPC Board

Dual channel 12-bit 1.8Gsps A/D
Or single channel 12-bit 3.6Gsps A/D
FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant

Not recommended for new designs.

The FMC161 provides one 12-bit A/D channel at 3.6Gsps or two A/D channels at 1.8Gsps clocked by either an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference) or an externally supplied sample clock. The FMC161 daughter card is mechanically and electrically compliant to the FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1).


The FMC161 design is based on Texas Instruments’ ADC12D1800 Analog-to-Digital converter. The analog signals are AC coupled connecting to MMCX or SSMC coax connectors on the front panel.


The FMC161 is well suited for low power applications such as airborne where the highest level of performance is required while ensuring that mission range does not get affected.
