Designed for applications where high data transmissions are required, the IC-OPT-FMCPa is a VITA 57.1 or 57.4 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) that offers a flexible connectivity with our FPGA 3U and 6U Front End Processing boards running our Signal Processing Reference Design (including signal acquisition, Processing DMA Engine, data storage, signal generation,…) thus allowing customers to streamline development of high performance signal acquisition systems by concentrating their efforts on their most critical tasks.
