Interface with the Analog Globe

Logic-X launches industry’s to start with 4-in-4-out, 16-bit high-pace ADC/DAC FMC with LVDS electronic interfaces, identified as the LXD31K4.

Alphen a/d Rijn, Netherlands. Logic-X, a developer and provider of adaptable compute acceleration platforms and sensor processing modules, has released industry’s initially 4-in-4-out analog-to-electronic (and vice versa) conversion FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) with very low voltage differential signalling (LVDS) interfaces.

Known as the LXD31K4, it is great for edge processing, higher pace information acquisition and playback, software described radio (SDR) and other purposes necessitating huge bandwidth conversion involving analog and digital domains. The card can be included as-is within an embedded process or employed all through the improvement and prototyping of an SoC or blended-sign ASIC. Also, it is supplied with a reference structure to aid engineers accelerate their advancement systems.

Logic-X’s use of LVDS for information interfaces in the LXD31K4 indicates users can simply integrate the card with an FPGA without owning to purchase and embed JESD204B-compliant interface cores for converters and receivers. This technique shortens procedure progress/prototyping time and reduces danger in the over-all venture.

The LXD31K4 presents 4 A/D channels, every single with a facts conversion rate of up to 310 mega-samples per 2nd (Msps), and four D/A channels, every single with a uncooked conversion amount of up to 310Msps which (with up to 4x interpolation – set by the user) can create a sign with an update amount of up to 1.24GHz.

All 8 channels have 16-little bit accuracy and deliver best-in-course sign-to-sound (SNR) efficiency. Also, the board is available with either a DC or an AC coupled front end which determines the bandwidth an input channel can acknowledge as very well as the bandwidth the card can develop on an output channel.

“With the latest improvements in machine understanding and synthetic intelligence there is an expanding need for superior bandwidth edge processing,” comments Erik Barhorst, Handling Director of Logic-X. “Moreover, several enter and various output channels are needed at the ‘edge’ in most circumstances, and we have released the LXD31K4 in direct response to marketplace need.”

Barhorst, who is also the LXD31K4’s main architect, goes on to say the new card was incredibly much intended with engineers in thoughts. The LVDS pin-out is, for case in point, configured such that it will work on most ‘partial implementations’ of the substantial pin depend connectors on Xilinx progress boards as very well as Logic-X’s FPGA FMC carrier boards.

A 2-in-2-out edition of Logic-X’s most current FMC is also obtainable. Termed the LXD31K2, it far too features 16-little bit resolution, utilises LVDS and can be purchased with a DC or AC front conclude. Other possibilities for equally the LXD31K4 and the LXD31K2 are temperature assortment ( to 85oC standard or -40 to 85oC industrial) and uncoated or coated (with a MIL-I-46058-C conformal coating).

The reference design and style provided with the LXD31K4 (and the LXD31K2) includes a Vivado IP integrator undertaking and IP cores that can be controlled from a computer software software above ethernet or PCI Categorical (PCIe) as well as in depth documentation.

The LXD31K4 and LXD31K2 are each sampling now with quantity availability predicted for Q4 2021.

Logic-X has launched industry’s first 16-bit, high-speed 4-in-4-out analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion FMC with LVDS interfaces.
