New Modular Data Acquisition Range

D-TACQ announces a new range of data acquisition modules in the VITA 57 FMC formfactor. FMC provides modularity with low cost and high performance by providing a direct connection to the central FPGAworld device that forms the backbone of modern embedded systems.

Analog Input module ACQ420FMC provides 4 channels of extremely high quality simultaneous analog input. The module features a new high bandwidth instrumentation amplifier and a 16-bit ADC per channel. The product features a high input impedance and four soft-switched input gain ranges. Sample rates of up to 2MSPS/channel are available. An 18-bit resolution variant is also available. A pluggable terminal panel module ACQ420-TERM01 is provided to allow simple signal connection to the front panel. ACQ420FMC is shipping now to select customers.

Analog Output module AO420FMC provides 4 channels of simultaneous analog output. This module features a 16-bit DAC per channel, and is capable of both high DC accuracy and AWG functionality to 1MSPS/channel. Building on our experience with 20-bit DAC systems, in addition, both 18-bit and 20-bit versions will be available.

D-TACQ provides glue logic and Linux device drivers for the Xilinx ZYNQ SOC. The cards can be demonstrated using the ZC702 and Zedboard evaluation boards, but for best results D-TACQ recommends using our range of new carriers coming soon.

Additional modules with options for higher channel count, 24 bit resolution and higher sampling rate are in the roadmap, contact D-TACQ for details
