Eight 16-Bit, 500 kSPS A/D Channels & Eight 16-Bit D/A Channels with On-Board Timing Controls

The FMC-SERVO module features eight simultaneously sampling A/D and DACs with an FPGA computing core. Low latency SAR A/D and fast-settling DACs support real-time servo control applications. The programmable input range and high input interface directly to many sensors, while the output is capable of driving many transducers. Front panel digital IO can be also be used as PWM or process controls.

Clock and trigger controls include support for consistent servo loop timing, counted frames, software triggering and external triggering. The sample rate clock is either an external clock or on-board programmable PLL clock source.

The FMC-Servo power consumption is 12 W for typical operation. The module may be conduction cooled using VITA20 standard 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 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 host development C libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux, 32/64-bit including RTOS variants. Application examples demonstrating the module features are provided.

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