New FPGA Mezzanine Cards Provide Automatic Gain Control

Press Release Summary:

  • FMC238 uses a single ADRV9009 to provide dual transmitter, dual receiver and dual observation receiver
  • FMC239 uses two ADRV9009 to provide quad transmitter and quad receiver, but without the observation receivers
  • Provides flexible external gain control modes, allowing flexibility in setting system level gain dynamically

Original Press Release:

VadaTech Announces a Two New FMC’s with 75 MHz to 6 GHz Dual Versatile Wideband Transceivers (MIMO)

Henderson, NV – October 2, 2020 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the FMC238 and FMC239. Both FMC’s are a FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) per VITA 57.1 standard. These low powered units boast a small footprint and utilize the ADRV9009 highly integrated, wideband RF transceiver.

The FMC238 uses a single ADRV9009 to provide dual transmitter, dual receiver and dual observation receiver. The FMC239 uses two ADRV9009 to provide quad transmitter and quad receiver, but without the observation receivers.

The ADRV9009 features dual channel Transmitters (TX) and Receivers (RX) with integrated synthesizer and digital signal processing functions. Each complete RX and TX subsystem includes DC offset correction, Quadrature Error Correction (QEC), and programmable digital filters. The transceivers also provide Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and flexible external gain control modes, allowing significant flexibility in setting system level gain dynamically. The FMC238/239 operates within the 75 MHz to 6.0 GHz frequency range, covering most licensed and unlicensed bands. The clocking is via the front panel or an internal clock. This makes the FMC238/239 an ideal choice for the development and/or deployment of advanced RF solutions.

The VadaTech family of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) modules are the most versatile FMCs of this type on the market.
