By Pentek, Inc.

Jade family of data converter XMC modules. The Model 71851 is based on the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA and features two 500 MHz, 12-bit A/Ds with multiband digital down converters (DDCs), one digital upconverter (DUC) and two 800 MHz 16-bit D/As. The Model 71851 offers a well-matched 200 MHz bandwidth on both the receive-side and on the transmit-side, which provides the complimentary solution necessary in many high-speed data acquisition, waveform generation, communications, satcom, UAV and radar applications

  • The front end accepts two analog HF or IF inputs on front panel SSMC connectors with transformer-coupling into two Texas Instruments ADS5463 500 MHz, 12-bit A/D converters
  • A TI DAC5688 DUC (digital upconverter) and D/A accepts a baseband real or complex data stream from the FPGA and provides that input to the upconvert, interpolate and dual D/A stages
  • A/D Acquisition IP Modules: The Model 71851 features two A/D Acquisition IP modules for easily capturing and moving data. Each module can receive data from any of the two A/Ds or a test signal generator
  • Jade architecture is based on the Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA, which raises the digital signal processing (DSP) performance by over 50% with equally impressive reductions in cost, power dissipation and weight. As the central feature of the Jade architecture,
  • NavigatorTM Design Suite was designed from the ground up to work with Pentek's Jade architecture and Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite® providing an unparalleled plug-and-play solution to the complex task of IP and control software creation and compatibility
  • The Model 71851 XMC module is designed to operate with the wide range of carrier boards in PCIe, 3U & 6U VPX, AMC, and 3U & 6U CompactPCI form factors, with versions for both commercial and rugged environments
  • Complete radar and software radio interface solution
  • Supports Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGAs
