Interface Concept, in partnership with Deustsches Elektronen-Synchotron Research Centre (DESY), has released a new FPGA Xilinx Virtex-7 processing engine in a single MTCA.4 form factor.
The IC-FEP-TCAa board combines the best current FPGA technology with innovative design to provide high-performance for demanding digital signal processing applications. The board's Virtex-7 FPGA features thirty six Serdes transceivers. Two FMC (VITA 57.1) mezzanine sites allow to plug ADC, DAC, general IOs, sFPDP or additional FMC modules, including a four channel 1300MSPS @ 12 bit ADC FMC developed by IC for RF sampling. IC-FEP-TCAa can support eight of these channels that can all be synchronized.
By extending the MicroTCA standard, MTCA.4 offers many high resolution signal acquisition channels, available on the front panel, as well as the use of high speed connected Rear Transition modules.
