Jade Model 78861: 4-Channel 200 MHz A/D with DDCs and Kintex UltraScale FPGA – x8 PCIe Board

Bus Interface: Optional LVDS and gigabit serial connections to the FPGA for custom I/O
Supported PCI Express Standards: PCI Express (Gen. 1, 2 & 3) interface up to x8
Supported Operating Systems: Windows, Linux

Model 78861 is a member of the Jade™ family of high-performance PCIe boards. The Jade architecture embodies a new streamlined approach to FPGA-based boards, simplifying the design to reduce power and cost, while still providing some of the highest-performance FPGA resources available today. Designed to work with Pentek’s new Navigator™ Design Suite of tools, the combination of Jade and Navigator offers users an efficient path to developing and deploying FPGA-based data acquisition and processing.

The 78861 is a multichannel, high-speed data converter with programmable DDCs (digital downconverters). It is suitable for connection to HF or IF ports of a communications or radar system. Its built-in data capture feature offers an ideal turnkey solution as well as a platform for developing and deploying custom FPGA-processing IP.

It includes four A/Ds, a complete multiboard clock and sync section and a large DDR4 memory. In addition to supporting PCI Express Gen. 3 as a native interface, the Model 78861 includes optional high-bandwidth connections to the Kintex UltraScale FPGA for custom digital I/O.
