Simi Valley, Calif.Innovative Integration has rolled out the X3-SDF, an XMC I/O module that features four simultaneously sampling, sigma delta A/D channels designed for vibration, acoustic and high dynamic range measurements.
The A/D device has programmable output rates up to 24 bits @ 2.5 MSPS and 16- bits @ 20 MSPS using the programmable filter in the A/D. According to the company, the X3-SDF module was developed in response to requests for DC-accurate measurements with wide dynamic range at sample rates up to 5 MHz.
A precision, low-jitter timebase or external clock is used for sample rate generation. Sample rates up to 20 MSPS, with <10 kHz programmable resolution, are supported as well as external clocking. Trigger methods include counted frames, software and external triggering.
Data acquisition control, signal processing, buffering, and system interface functions are implemented in a Xilinx Spartan3 1M gate FPGA. Two 1Mx16 memory devices are used for data buffering and FPGA computing memory. The logic can be fully customized using VHDL and MATLAB using the FrameWork Logic toolset. The MATLAB BSP supports hardware-in-the-loop development using the Simulink block diagram environment with Xilinx System Generator.
The PCI Express interface supports continuous data rates up to 180 Mbytes/s between the module and the host. A flexible data packet system implemented over the PCIe interface provides high data rates to the host and is readily expandable for custom applications.
