Curtiss-Wright ADC511 FPGA Mezzanine Card

The ADC511 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC), from Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing, is a 400MS/s 14-bit, dual channel ADC card. The ADC511 FPGA module features two Texas Instruments ADS5474 analog to digital converters. Each device supports a sampling rate up to 400MSPS with 14-bit resolution. The ADC card is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled rugged versions. The ADC511 is ideal for DSP applications such as Signal Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic Counter Measures (ECM), and Radar.

ADC511 FPGA Mezzanine Card Features

  • Dual Texas Instruments ADS5474, 14-bit ADCs
  • Up to 400 MSPS
  • ADC coupled analog input bandwidth >1.2GHz
  • Choice of onboard and external clocks sources
  • Multi-board synchronization capability
  • FMC/VITA 57 (draft) form factor
  • Air and conduction-cooled variants

The ADC511 speeds and simplifies the integration of FPGAs into embedded system design by providing high bandwidth I/O direct to the host card’s FPGAs. It eliminates data bottlenecks to increase DSP subsystem performance by routing high-speed ADC I/O directly to the host board’s FPGAs via the FMC connector. The ADC511 can be fitted to FMC hosts like Curtiss-Wright’s FPE320, FPE650 and HPE720. The combination of the ADC511 with a suitable host provides developers with a high quality analog I/O and processing solution in a single VPX/VPX-REDI slot.

The ADC511 is available from Mistra.
