The VHS-ADC is a high-speed, multichannel acquisition platform. It is equipped with eight phase-synchronous ADCs capable of a maximum sampling rate of 105 MHz and a high-capacity Virtex-4 FPGA for high-speed processing. It also comes with SDRAM for data storage and an expansion connector to add eight input channels, eight output channels, or several gigabytes of DDR2 SDRAM for simultaneous, full-speed recording. The VHS-ADC is therefore well-suited to multichannel intermediate-frequency processing (AC-coupled option), baseband processing (DC-coupled option), and other processing types. The VHS-ADC is intended for digital signal processing application developers in the fields of telecommunications, aerospace, defense, medical imaging, and industrial applications.
The optional model-based design kit for the VHS-ADC provides integration with MATLAB® and Simulink®, including a wide array of Simulink blocks for access to on-board I/O and reference models for typical applications and capabilities.
