Analog I/O may be either AC or DC coupled. The sample clock is from either an ultra-low-jitter PLL or can be derived from external inputs. Multiple cards can be synchronized for sampling.

The FMC-1000 power consumption is less than 10.4W for typical operation (AC coupled, 12W DC coupled). The module may be conduction cooled using provided thermal interfaces and a heat spreading plate. Ruggedization levels for wide-temperature operation from -40 to 85C operation and 0.1 g2/Hz vibration. Conformal coating is available.

Support logic in VHDL is provided for integration with FPGA carrier cards. Specific support for Innovative carrier cards includes integration with Framework Logic tools that support VHDL/Verilog and Matlab developers. The Matlab BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator for the FMC integrated with the FPGA carrier card.

Software tools for Innovative carrier cards include include C libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux. Application examples demonstrating the module features are provided.

* Sampling rates in an application depend on carrier and system design
