ICS-1555 ADC Module

4-channel digital receiver PMC

ICS-1555 ADC Module


Cost-Effective Performance in a Small Package

Designed for communications, radar and test and measurements applications, the ICS-1555 Digital Receiver PMC card combines ADC and DSP technologies to provide cost-effective high performance in a single PMC site.

Maximum signal processing capability with minimum power consumption

The ICS-1555 consists of four 16-bit ADCs sampling synchronously at frequencies up to 180 MHz, with the ability to synchronize the sampling to an external reference. Simultaneous downconversion of up to 16 arbitrary signal bands is provided by four Graychip GC4016 digital downconverters (DDCs). A Xilinx® Virtex®-5 SX95T FPGA is provided for user-defined signal processing functions, giving greater capacity and lower power consumption than previous generations.

Ideally suited for demanding application

The ICS-1555 is ideally suited for applications in:

  • Military communications
  • 3G and 4G cellular base station development
  • Signals intelligence
  • Smart antenna
  • Radar beam forming
  • Wireless test and measurement
  • Satellite ground station
