FPGA Development Platform (Spartan-3 2000) & Tx/Rx Analog
  • Develop custom signal processing applications on FPGA using this generic development platform
  • Xilinx Spartan-3 XC3S2000-4 FPGA features 2 million system gates, 720Kbit of dual port memory, 40 dedicated 18x18 multipliers
  • Analog front end (AD9860) features:
    • 2 10-bit high-speed ADCs 64Msamples/s
    • 2 12-bit high-speed DACs 64Msamples/s [1]
    • 2 10-bit ADCs and
    • 3 8-bit DACs
  • USB 2.0 interface supports signaling rates of 480 Mbits/s (High Speed) and 12 Mbits/s (Full Speed). Typical sustained data throughputs are 85 Mbit/s (HS) and 6.5 Mbit/s (FS)
  • Temperature sensor
  • 32Mb non-volatile flash memory stores up to 4 distinct FPGA configurations (3 custom + 1 fixed baseline). The selected configuration is automatically reloaded at power up or upon command within 2.2 seconds
  • Graphical User Interface is used for remote monitoring and control over USB. This includes loading FPGA configuration file into flash (non-volatile). FPGA configuration can also be loaded via a JTAG cable (volatile)
  • This module is interface compatible with other pre-programmed ComBlock modules
  • 120 MHz maximum practical FPGA processing clock rate (typ.)
  • ComScope–enabled: key internal signals can be captured in real-time and displayed on a host computer
  • Connectorized 3”x 3” module for ease of prototyping. Standard 40 pin 2mm dual row connectors (left, right, bottom). Single 5V supply with reverse voltage and overvoltage protection.
  • Includes NGC components (software drivers) for USB 2.0/1.1 and AD9860 mixed-signals front-end
