6.4 GHz A/D and D/A 3U VPX Module for Wideband Defense, Radar and Communication Applications

Eletter Product

VPX Module

  • Utilizes state-of-art high-speed Texas Instruments A/Ds and D/As
  • Matching 6.4 GHz A/D and D/A sampling for wideband signals
  • 3U VPX with PCIe Gen.3 x8, Optical I/O and RF I/O backplane options
  • Jade architecture uses Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA
  • Navigator Design Suite supports Xilinx Graphical Vivado IP Integrator

The Model 54141A is a dual channel analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converter with sample rates up to 6.4 GHz. Programmable DDCs and DUCs support connections to IF or RF signals. Not only does the Model 54141A comply with the VITA 65.0 3U VPX specification, it also offers flexible analog and digital interface options for the VPX P2 backplane connector to meet system-specific requirements. In addition to its PCIe Gen.3x8 interface on the VPX P1 connector, it is possible to add up to 8 more gigabit serial lanes connected directly to the FPGA for supporting user-installed protocols.

The Model 54141A supports the emerging VITA 66.5 optical interconnect standard by providing four optical duplex lanes to a mating spring-loaded backplane connector. With the installation of a serial protocol like 10 or 40 Gigabit Ethernet in the FPGA, the interface enables high-bandwidth digital communications between boards or chassis independent of the PCIe interface.

For flexibility across different I/O requirements, the board can be optioned to support VITA 67.3C. This provides analog signal routing through the VPX backplane to replace front panel connectors for RF In/Out, Sample/Reference clocks and Gate/Trigger/Sync/PPS signals. This option is often required in ruggedized deployments and for simplifying unit field replacements and upgrades.
