Echotek Series DCM-V5-XMC Digital Receiver

Product Description

The Echotek™ Series DCM-V5-XMC Digital Receiver implements a flexible FPGA-based architecture in a space-efficient mezzanine card form factor. The module combines the latest in high-performance A/D conversion with an ultra high-speed D/A converter, both working in conjunction with a powerful Xilinx® FPGA. The user-programmable Virtex-5 FPGA functions as the primary data processor, supported by Mercury’s EchoCore™ firmware library.

With this set of flexible resources, the DCM-V5-XMC delivers unique capabilities, such as multi-board coherency, while addressing a range of analog signal requirements found in SIGINT, ELINT, and RADAR applications.
