FMC170 – Single-channel, 5GSPS 10-bit ADC & Single-channel, 5GSPS 10-bit DAC | HPC Board

Single-channel, 5Gsps 10-bit A/D
Single-channel, 5Gsps 10-bit D/A
FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant

Not recommended for new designs.

The FMC170 is an analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) FMC daughter card that provides one 10-bit A/D channel at 5Gsps and one 10-bit D/A channel at 5Gsps. The sample clock can be supplied externally or by an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference). The clock tree enables cascading of multiple boards for phase-locked sampling. The FMC170 is mechanically and electrically compliant to the FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1-2010).


The low latency data path of the FMC170 enables 2.5GHz of instantaneous bandwidth in both the receive and transmit directions. The analog signal input and output are AC-coupled and connected to MMCX or SSMC coax connectors on the front panel. The FMC170 allows flexible control of clock source, sampling frequency, and calibration through I2C communication. The ADC has individual calibration circuits for fine-tuning of gain, offset, and phase.


The FMC170 is ideal for applications where limited space is available such as RADAR/SONAR, wireless telecommunications, and aerospace test and measurement instruments.
