FMC204 – 4-Channel 16-bit D/A @ 1 GSPS | HPC DAC Board

4-Channel 16-bit D/A @ 1 GSPS
FMC-HPC Digital-to-Analog Converter Board
FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant

Not recommended for new designs.

The FMC204 is a quad channel DAC FMC. The FMC204 provides four channels of 16-bit D/A @ 1 GSPS enabling simultaneous sampling at a maximum rate of 1 GSPS.


The FMC204 daughter card is mechanically and electrically compliant to FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1).


The FMC204 allows flexible control on clock source, sampling frequency, and calibration through an I2C communication bus.
