Happy Holidays From Aventas!


In this issue, check out Acromag's new multi-function I/O extension module for PMC and XMC FPGA cards.  Alta DT is introducing two new high density ARINC interface modules and Pentek has a new data converter which is it's fastest ever. 


We'd like to extend our best wishes for a happy holiday season to you all.  We also wish you much success in the new year.


Acromag - New I/O Extension Module for FPGA Processing

The AXM-75 is a multi-function I/O module that adds A/D, D/A, and digital I/O signal processing functioPentek AXM-A75ns to an FPGA board. These extension I/O modules plug directly onto many Acromag reconfigurable FPGA cards equipped with an AXM mezzanine connector.


Key Features

  • 16 channels of analog input capable of simultaneous sampling
  • 16-bit 250kHz A/D converter on each channel
  • Analog input range of ±10.24 volts
  • Programmable gain of 1x, 2x, 4x, or 8x
  • 8 channels of analog output capable of simultaneous updates
  • Each A/D channel includes a 2K sample FIFO
  • FIFO status interrupts configurable for half-full or overflow conditions
  • Dual quad 16-bit serial input D/A converters with 10μS settling time
  • Analog output range of ±10 volts
  • 16 channels of general-purpose digital I/O
  • Front panel 68-pin VHDCI receptacle for field I/O connections
  • Example VHDL code provided in the base board's Engineering Design Kit to control sample rate and gain selection.

Alta DT - ARINC PCI Express One and Four Lane Interface Cards  

Alta Data Technologies' PCIE1L/PCIE4L-A429 interface modules offers a variety of ARINC-419/429/575/573/717 channel configurations with software selectable RX/TxAlta1553ARINC channels, baud rates, bit encoding and word configurations (Start/Sync/Stop length, Parity, bits/word, MSB/LSB). Encode or decode almost any ARINC-429 physical layer signal. 


The one lane card (PCIE1L) is the industry's first low profile, half height card and is ideal for 1U/2U servers and slot limited PCI Express systems.  The 4 lane card (PCIE4L) is normal 1/2 height common for most desktop and larger server systems.


Key Features


  • 4-30 Channels: Up to 16 Shared RX/TX & 14 RX (PCIE4L)
  • 408 Channels: Up to 4 Shared RX/TX & 4 RX (PCIE1L)
  • Commercial and Extended Temp Models
  • Signal Capture on Two RX Channels Standard
  • One MByte, 32-bit RAM per 16 Channel Bank
  • Up to 4 ARINC 717 RX and TX Channels

Pentek - Cobalt Model 71651 High Speed Software Radio Module   
Model 71651 is a member of the Cobalt® family of hPentek71651igh performance XMC modules based on the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. A multichannel, high-speed data converter with a programmable DDC, it is suitable for connection to HF or IF ports of a communications or radar system. Its built-in data capture and playback features offer an ideal turnkey solution.

It includes two A/Ds, two D/As and four banks of memory. In addition to supporting PCI Express Gen. 2 as a native interface, the Model 71651 includes a general purpose connector for application-specific I/O. 


Key Features 

  • Complete radar and software radio interface solution
  • Supports Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT and SXT FPGAs
  • Two 500 MHz 12-bit A/Ds
  • Two multiband DDCs (digital downconverters)
  • Two 800 MHz 16-bit D/As
  • One DUC (digital upconverter)
  • Multiboard programmable beamformer
  • Up to 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM or 16 MB of QDRII+ SRAM
  • Sample clock synchronization to an external system reference
  • LVPECL clock/sync bus for multimodule synchronization
  • PCI Express (Gen. 1 & 2) interface up to x8
  • LVDS connections to the Virtex-6 FPGA for custom I/O.
