    Pentek Virtex-6 Cobalt Series FPGA ADC / DAC Modules

    Pentek Cobalt series ADC/DAC modules expands the sampling frequency to 1GHz, while supporting key software raido functions. All Cobalt modules utilize the industry's most advanced FPGA technology --Xilinx's Virtex®-6 FPGA family --for on-board signal processing.

  • Key features:
  • •Extends A/D and D/A sampling rates to 1 GHz
  • •Embedded IP delivers turnkey software radio solutions
  • •GateFlow Design Kit speeds integration of custom IP
  • •FPGA device options offer scalable performance
  • Each module features a Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT or SXT FPGA fully connected to all data and control paths. The FPGAs contain factory-installed functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering, time stamping, and memory control with additional capacity for user-defined functions. The modules support a range of Virtex-6 devices, allowing customers to choose the device density that best fits their requirements.

  • Other Key Features:
  • •Synch bus for synchronizing multiple modules to increase channel count
  • •VCO sample clock synthesizers locked to an external system reference
  • •PCI Express (Gen 2) interfaces for x4 and x8
  • •Secondary gigabit serial interface
  • •Modular memory options for QDRII+ SRAM and DDR3 SDRAM
  • •Intelligent, chaining DMA engines
  • •All modules now shipping from stock
  • Development Support
  • Users can readily integrate custom FPGA code with standard factory-installed IP using Pentek's GateFlow® FPGA design kits. GateFlow kits include VHDL source files, test benches and complete documentation, and are fully compatible with the Xilinx IDS Foundation design tools.

    ReadyFlow® board support packages for C-language programming include drivers, project files and example code demonstrating all features. ReadyFlow supports Windows®, Linux® and VxWorks® operating systems.
