New A/D and D/A Converter FMC from VadaTech Offers High Sampling Rates

VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, has announced a new FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) that is both an A/D and D/A converter.

Henderson, NV - Jan 13, 2015 - VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, has announced a new FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) that is both an A/D and D/A converter. The module is compliant to the VITA 57 specification and offers very high performance targeted towards RADAR, LTE/Broadband communications systems, ATE, Physics, and video/broadcast requirements.


The FMC525 is a 14-bit 5.7 Giga Samples Per Second (GSPS) D/A converter and a 12-bit 4.0 GSPS A/D converter. The DAC core is based on a quad-switch architecture that enables dual-edge clocking operation, effectively increasing the DAC update rate to 5.7 GSPS when configured for Mix-Mode™ or 2x interpolation. The input sampling clock can be via the front panel or the on board wide-band PLL. The FMC225 has a trigger input which is routed to the FMC connector. The analog input/output, clock input and trigger inputs are routed via SSMC connectors.
VadaTech offers FMCs in Networking, Digital Converter, and RF Module types. The Company also offers the full ecosystem of MicroTCA products, including FPGAs, MTCA infrastructure, processors, graphics, storage modules and more.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
