Mistral Solutions recently announced
the availability of highest resolution FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC/VITA
57) module from Curtiss Wright, the new ADC511, a 400MS/s 14-bit,
dual channel ADC card.

The ADC511 uses two Texas Instruments
ADS5474 analog to digital converters. Each device supports a sampling
rate up to 400MSPS with 14-bit resolution. Available in both
air-cooled and conduction-cooled rugged versions, the ADC511 is aimed
at DSP applications such as Signal Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic
Counter Measures (ECM), and Radar.

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

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
