VadaTech adds FMC238 and FMC239 FPGA mezzanine cards

Two FPGA mezzanine cards (FMCs) from VadaTech, the FMC238 and FMC239, are equipped with 75MHz to 6.0GHz dual versatile wideband multi input, multi output (MIMO) transceivers.

The latest releases from the manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, are FMCs per VITA 57.1 standard. These low powered units boast a small footprint and utilise the ADRV9009 highly integrated, wideband RF transceiver.

The FMC238 uses a single ADRV9009 to provide dual transmitter, dual receiver and dual observation receiver.  The FMC239 uses two ADRV9009 to provide quad transmitter and quad receiver, but without the observation receivers.

The ADRV9009 features dual channel transmitters (TX) and receivers (RX) with integrated synthesizer and digital signal processing functions. Each complete RX and TX subsystem includes DC offset correction, quadrature error correction (QEC), and programmable digital filters. The transceivers also provide automatic gain control (AGC) and flexible external gain control modes. This allows the FMCs “significant flexibility” in setting system level gain dynamically, says VadaTech. The FMC238 and FMC239 operate within the 75MHz to 6.0GHz frequency range, covering most licensed and unlicensed bands. The clocking is via the front panel or an internal clock, which lends the FMC238 and FMC239 to the development and / or deployment of advanced RF solutions, advises VadaTech.

VadaTech believes that this family of MIMO modules are the most versatile FMCs of this type on the market.

VadaTech specialises in innovative embedded computing solutions from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems. The company’s focus is on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, VPX and PCIe solutions and leverages its electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level expertise to provide customised commercial or rugged computing solutions to meet the most complex customer requirements.

VadaTech also offers specialised products for VME, CompactPCI, and other architectures.

The company is a member of PICMG and VITA and has headquarters, design and manufacturing facilities in Henderson, Nevada, USA and design, support and sales offices in Europe and Asia Pacific.
