A high-performance FPGA ADC Mezzanine Card (FMC/VITA 57) module features two enhanced Texas Instruments ADC devices. The ADC510 from Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing delivers sampling performance of 550 MS/s with analog bandwidths  >1.7 GHz and 12 bits of digital output. Available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled rugged versions, the ADC510 is aimed at DSP applications such as signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic counter measures (ECM) and radar, making it easier and faster for system developers to integrate FPGAs into their embedded system designs.

The ADC device interfaces are routed to the FMC connector to enable an FPGA on a baseboard to directly control and receive data. There is a choice of sample clock sources for the ADC510 including an onboard source that supports sampling rates of 300, 320, 400 and 500 MSPS as well as the ability to utilize an external sample clock. Input and output triggers are provided to enable multiple ADC510 modules to be synchronized to increase the number of input channels. 

HDL example code is available for the ADC510 for integration into the HDL development suite for Curtiss-Wright Controls’ FPGA baseboards. The ADC510 is provided with HDL example code to simplify and speed integration into the HDL development suite for integration with Curtiss-Wright Controls’ FPGA host boards.
