VadaTech Announces a new 3U VPX, Dual ADC 12-bit @ 6.4 GSPS or Quad ADC @ 3.2 GSPS with Virtex UltraScale+

Henderson, NV – June 29, 2020 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX572. The VPX572 provides a dual ADC with sampling rates of up to 6.4 GSPS at 12-bit resolution (ADC12DJ3200). The ADCs are capable of being configured to run as quad channel each running at 3.2 GSPS. The XCVU13P FPGA has large 360 Mb on-chip UltraRAM which is excellent for applications such as radar simulation and smart jamming. The FPGA interfaces directly to rear I/O via SERDES and LVDS, supporting PCIe, SRIO, GbE/10GbE/40GbE or Aurora backplane connections. There are also general purpose I/O signals, e.g. for trigger, routed to the front panel, which also contains 8 bi-color user LEDs.

The ADCs on the VPX572 have a common sampling rate, which can be fed from front panel (Direct RF Clock) or from PLL locked to a 10/100 MHz reference clock sourced from front panel or backplane. The ADCs are fully coherent with sampling clock selection being by ordering option. The board also includes board health management/monitoring capability using VadaTech’s field-proven IPMI software, compatible with our tier 2 platform managers.  An on-board management controller has the ability to access board sensors and manage FPGA image updates.

The unit is available in a range of temperature, shock and vibration specifications per ANSI/VITA 47, up to V3 and OS2
