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.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
