New Update


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
