VadaTech announces the AMC583 and FMC250

VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the AMC583 dual FMC+ carrier and FMC250 ADC/DAC FMC+ module.

Henderson, NV - July 13, 2017 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the AMC583 dual FMC+ carrier and FMC250 ADC/DAC FMC+ module. By increasing the number of SERDES lanes available, FMC+ carriers and modules support higher I/O bandwidth, making improved use of the latest JESD204B-enabled signal conversion products.


The AMC583 is an FPGA Dual FMC+ Carrier with Kintex UltraScale™ XCKU115 and P2040. The double-module AMC provides a very capable I/O processing engine, with a large UltraScale™ FPGA coupled to two FMC+ sites and supported by an on-board quad-core P2040 processor. The XCKU115 FPGA has over 5,500 DSP slices and is supported by 8 GB of DDR4 (over two banks each 32-bits wide). The dual FMC+ sites on the AMC583 accept FMCs from VadaTechs extensive range of data acquisition, networking and RF units, and other 3rd party VITA-57.4 compliant modules.

The FMC250 utilizes dual AD9625 ADCs providing 12-bit conversion rates of up to 2.6 GSPS and a single DAC (AD9162 or AD9164) providing 16-bit conversion rate of up to 12 GSPS. The analog input, digital output, clock and trigger interfaces of the FMC250 are routed via SSMC connectors. The internal clock frequency is programmable and the clock is capable of locking to an external reference.

MicroTCA provides a powerful and flexible alternative to VPX for cost-sensitive and SWAP-constrained applications.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
