The FMC30RF is an FMC daughter card which is fully compliant with the VITA 57.1-2010 standard. It offers, in a small footprint, a low power and fully featured Rx/Tx signal path for the development and deployment of advanced RF solutions.
With frequency range coverage from 400MHz to 3.0GHz* and up to 60MHz* bandwidth, the FMC30RF provides flexibility and reconfigurability for a host of applications.
Based on Texas Instruments RF technology, the FMC30RF comprises a dual DAC Tx IQ modulator, a dual ADC Rx IQ demodulator with PGA and LNA front-end and on-board clocking with integrated PLL/VCO.
The FMC30RF allows flexible control of sampling frequency through serial communication busses. Furthermore, the card is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring and offers several power-down modes to switch off unused functions.
*Bandwidth is limited to 30MHz when the TRF3711 Low Pass Filter is not bypassed.
