16-Channel ADC Module – High-Pin-CountFMC116

The FMC116 is a sixteen-channel ADC FMC Daughter Card which is fully compliant with the VITA 57.1-2008 standard. The FMC116 provides sixteen A/D 14-bit 125Msps channels which can be sampled by an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference) or an externally supplied sample clock. A trigger input for customized sampling control is also available. The FMC116 has the HPC (high-pin count) connector, front panel I/O, and is conduction cooled capable.

The design is based on Linear Technology’s quad channel 14-bit 125Msps A/D with high speed serial DDR LVDS outputs (2-lanes per channel). The analog signal input is DC coupled with offset correction circuitry, connecting from a connector on the front panel.

The FMC116 allows flexible control on sampling frequency through serial communication busses. Furthermore the card is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring and offers several power-down modes to switch off unused functions or protect the card from overheating.
