TEK Microsystems QuiXilica Calypso-V5 VXS Digitizer Board

TEK Microsystems introduced the Calypso-V5, the latest member of the QuiXilica VXS product family. The Calypso-V5 VXS is a 6U VME and ANSI/VITA 41 (VXS) compliant high-speed digitizer board that combines high density FPGA processing with the latest 12-bit ADC technology. In interleaved mode, the Calypso-V5 supports two channels at sample rates up to 3.2 GSPS. In non-interleaved mode, the Calypso-V5 supports six channels at sample rates up to 1.6 GSPS with over 2 GHz full power bandwidth, supporting 1st and 2nd Nyquist operation. The QuiXilica Calypso-V5 VXS will be available in for early access customers starting in October 2010.
