Dual Twelve Bit 2.3 or 1.5 GSps DAC I/O Card

Annapolis Micro Systems

The Annapolis Dual I/O Card provides one or two individually configurable 12 bit output streams, and is available for up to either 2.3 GSps or 1.5 GSps, with high output power, exceptional gain, and flatness in multiple Nyquist zones. This COTS board includes a Virtex II Pro P70 for user-configurable, real-time generation of sophisticated signals, and up to 1 GByte of DDR DRAM. The Xilinx Virtex II Pro P70 on the board provides user-configurable, real-time continuous sustained processing of the full . Use the high precision trigger to synchronize the two on-board DAC channels (<1 Fs period) or to synchronize DACs between multiple boards (<2 Fs periods). Use the Annapolis WILDSTAR™ Clock Synchronization Distribution board to supply up to 8 clocks and triggers to multiple boards. One or two Dual DAC cards fit onto a COTS Annapolis WILDSTAR™ II Pro for PCI or VME based processing boards.
