Designed for communications, radar and test and measurement applications, the ICS-554 PMC card combines the best in ADC and DSP technologies to provide the ultimate advantage in size, performance and cost. The ICS-554 includes four 14-bit ADCs that sample synchronously at frequencies up to 105 MHz. It includes four Graychip GC4016 quad digital downconverters (tuner modules) for simultaneous down conversion of up to 16 arbitrary signal bands (e.g., 16 FDM signals). Following the tuners, a 1 Million Gate (ICS-554A or ICS-554B) or 3 Million Gate (ICS-554D or ICS-554E) Xilinx FPGA (that is virtually free for user coding) provides a powerful capability for baseband processing. The ICS-554 also offers onboard storage and a fast PCI 2.2 64-bit, 66 MHz DMA interface and an uncommitted Pn4 connector for direct data transfer. The ICS-554D and the ICS-554E support LVDS links over the P4.
The ICS-554 is ideally suited for applications in: Military Communications, 3G and 4G Cellular Base Station Development, Signal Intelligence, Smart Antenna, Radar Beam Forming, Wireless Test and Measurement and Satellite Ground Stations.
