GSM Monitoring Receiver - Model 52663

Model 52663 is a member of the Cobalt® family of high performance VPX boards, based on the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA.  This four-channel, high-speed A/D converter with 1100 GSM DDCs (digital downconverters) accepts IF signals from an RF tuner. It is ideal for capturing all transmit and receive signals in both upper and lower GSM bands.


It includes four A/Ds and four banks of DDCs. Channelizer data and control signals flow across the PCI Express Gen. 2 native interface, providing peak rates of up to 2 GB/sec.


  • Complete GSM channelizer with analog IF interface
  • Four 180 MHz 16-bit A/Ds
  • Two banks of 375 DDCs for upper GSM band
  • Two banks of 175 DDCs for lower GSM band
  • Sample clock synchronization to an external system reference
  • LVPECL clock/sync bus for multiboard synchronization
  • PCI Express Gen. 2 x4
  • 3U VPX form factor provides a compact, rugged platform

VPX Mezzanine Carrier Cards - VPX4810 and VP4812
These 3U cards provide a simple and cost-effective solution for interfacing XMC and PMC modules to a VPX computer system.
The carriers route power and bus signals to a plug-in mezzanine module through the VPX card slot connector. An 8-lane PCIe bus Gen 2 interface enables rapid data throughput. Developers can leverage hundreds of available PMC/XMC industrial I/O and configurable FPGA modules from Acromag or other vendors.


  • VPX4810
  • Holds one standard PMC or XMC module
  • Air-cooled, conduction-cooled, and REDI versions available
  • VPX4812
  • Holds one standard XMC module
  • Air-cooled, conduction-cooled, and REDI versions available
  • Can be used as a VPX switch card
