FMC216 – 16-Channel 312.5MSPS @ 16-bit | HPC DAC Board

16-Channel 312.5MSPS @ 16-bit
FMC-HPC Digital-to-Analog Converter Board
FMC VITA 57.1 Compliant

The FMC216 is a sixteen-channel DAC FMC Daughter Card which is fully compliant with the VITA 57.1-2008 standard. The FMC216 provides sixteen D/A 16-bit 312.5Msps (2.5Gsps with x8 interpolation) channels which can be sampled by an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference) or an externally supplied sample clock.


The design is based on Texas Instrument’s DAC39J84 quad channel 16-bit DAC with JESD204B signaling. The analog signal output is DC coupled with offset correction circuitry, connecting to a connector on the front panel.
