Pentek, Inc., has announced the Model 7194 high-speed clock generator in a PMC/XMC form factor, providing fixed frequency sample clocks to up to four Pentek analog-to-digital Cobalt and Onyx modules in multi-board systems. It enables synchronous sampling, playback and timing for a wide range of multichannel, high-speed data acquisition and software radio applications.
As a standard PMC/XMC form factor module, the Model 7194 uses PMC P14 or XMC P15 connectors solely for power and can be mounted in any PMC or XMC site. The optional PCIe style 6-pin power connector allows it to be powered without a PMC/XMC site and can be used in virtually any chassis or enclosure. Carriers adapt the Model 7194 for PCIe, AMC, CompactPCI, VME and VPX. The board requires no programming.
Delivering clock frequencies up to 2 GHz, the Model 7194 is targeted for the following high-speed products and their commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and rugged PCIe, AMC, Compact PCI, VME and VPX derivatives:
Onyx Virtex-7 FPGA Models:
71740 (1-Channel 3.6 GHz or 2-Channel 1.8 GHz 12-bit A/D XMC module)
71741 (1-Channel 3.6 GHz or 2-Channel 1.8 GHz 12-bit A/D with DDC XMC module)
Cobalt Virtex-6 FPGA Models:
71640 (1-Channel 3.6 GHz or 2-Channel 1.8 GHz 12-bit A/D XMC module)
71641 (1-Channel 3.6 GHz or 2-Channel 1.8 GHz 12-bit A/D with DDC XMC module)
