HUNTSVILLE, Alabama, USA, June 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Abaco Systems announces the release of the FMC165 FPGA Mezzanine Card in our portfolio, offering higher analog sampling rates, improved signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and improved synchronization processes on many boards from earlier generations. Useful in direct spectrum conversion applications such as radar / sonar, software-defined radio and ultra-wideband satellite digital receivers for defense, electronic warfare, medical equipment, aerospace and test instrument solutions.
The FMC165 can be integrated with any FMC / FMC + compatible media in an air-cooled configuration and in an air-cooled or conductive cooling environment with Abaco FPGA carrier cards. This new card allows flexible control of the clock source via serial communication buses and is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring, offering several off modes to turn off unused functions to reduce power consumption at the system level.
Recognizing the demand for innovative approaches to existing products, the FMC165 extends the life cycle of the existing FMC160 product with a technology upgrade. The addition of TI (Texas Instruments) ADC32RF4x Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) provides an increase in sampling rate and dynamic range, improving analog input capabilities over existing products to increase customer efficiency.
According to Pete Thompson, vice president of product management at Abaco Systems, “We are committed to delivering products that will meet the new challenges our customers bring us, especially in a developing military environment, and FMC165 is achieving its goal. Abaco is at the forefront of innovation and offers a mature product upgrade to meet the new requirements for the specific needs of our customers. ”
