The ADDA-MGT-Board is designed for A/D conversion, D/A conversion and for pre- and post-processing of data streams like digital I/Q modulation and demodulation.

In this application the Xilinx Virtex-5-SXT chip is used for pre- and post-processing of DAC and ADC data streams and for controlling of the connected analog RF circuits.

This board includes four digital data interfaces:

  • 4 x PCI Express Interface
  • Rocket I/O Interface
  • Parallel LVDS Interface
  • SFP Interface

The complete clock generation and power supply is integrated on board.

The ADDA-MGT-Board can also operate standalone.

The Virtex5 chip can either be configured directly via JTAG-Interface or via an integrated flash ROM configuration memory.
