VadaTech Announces Octal Versatile Wideband Transceiver (MIMO) with UltraScale+ FPGA

VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the AMC588. The AMC588 is a wideband transceiver in AMC form factor.

Henderson, NV - May 3, 2018 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the AMC588. The AMC588 is a wideband transceiver in AMC form factor. The AMC utilizes four AD9371 connected to a Virtex UltraScale+™ FPGA providing eight transceivers channels. The modules is suitable for software defined radio (SDR), SATCOM, 3G/4G micro and macro BTS, antenna systems, research and instrumentation.


The AD9371 supports Time Division Duplex (TDD) and Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) operation, with a frequency range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz covering most licensed and unlicensed cellular bands. Each receiver and transmitter subsystem includes quadrature error correction (QEC) and on-chip programmable digital filters. The on-board re-configurable UltraScale+™ XCVU13P FPGA interfaces via JESD204B directly to wideband transceivers. The FPGA interfaces to a single bank of DDR4, 64-bit wide for a total of 8GB. This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host.

The benefits of the AMC588 are wide ranging but most notably a frequency range 300 MHz to 6 GHz, flexible clocking, observation channels for implementation of error correction functions and sniffer receiver channels that can monitor different frequency bands. The AMC588 is compatible with Analog Devices RadioVerse™ design tools and comes with a reference design implementation complete with VHDL source code, documentation and configuration binaries.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
