TEK QuiXilica Aries-V6 VME / VXS Digitizer Board

TEK Microsystems introduced the QuiXilica Aries-V6 VME / VXS high-speed digitizer board. The QuiXilica Aries-V6 features three Virtex-6 FPGA devices and ten 16-bit Analog Devices AD9467 ADC converters. The Aries-V6 enables systems with up to 180 coherent channels and 130 TeraMAC/s of processing in a single chassis. It is 6U VME and ANSI/VITA 41 (VXS) compliant. The Tekmicro Aries-V6 is available now.
