The FmcAdc100M14b4cha is a 4 channel 100MSPS 14 bit ADC card in FMC (FPGA Mezzanine Card) format. By default it uses only signals from the LPC rows of the HPC connector that is mounted. The gain can be set by software in three steps: +/-50mV, +/-0.5V, +/-5V. An advanced offset circuit is used in the front-end design of the ADC board, and allows a voltage shift in the range of +/- 5V that is independent on the chosen gain range.
The project is divided into four sub-projects:
- Hardware design : Mezzanine board schematic and layout.
- Gateware support : HDL reference designs.
- Software support : Linux device driver, library and tools.
- Testing support : Production and functional tests.
Please refer to the corresponding sub-project for detailed information.
