Abaco Systems announces the release of the FMC165 FPGA Mezzanine Card to our portfolio, offering higher analog sampling rates, improved signal to noise ratio (SNR), and enhanced multi-board synchronization processes from earlier generations. Useful in applications with direct RF down conversion such as radar/sonar, software defined radio, and ultra-wide-band satellite digital receivers for defense, electronic warfare, medical equipment, aerospace, and test instrumentation solutions.

The FMC165 can be integrated with any FMC/ FMC+ compatible carrier in an air-cooled configuration and in either air-cooled or conduction-cooled environments with Abaco FPGA carrier cards. This new card allows for flexible control of clock source through serial communication buses and is equipped with power supply and temperature monitoring, offering several power-down modes to switch off unused functions to reduce system level power consumption.

Recognizing the demand for innovative approaches to existing products, the FMC165extends the lifecycle of the existing FMC160 product with a technology upgrade. The addition of the TI (Texas Instruments) ADC32RF4x Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) provides increase in the sampling rate and dynamic range, improving analog input capabilities over existing product to increase customers' performance.
