The DAQ523 is a digitizer sub-system in MTCA.4 form factor, complete with DMA engine and EPICS support. The equipment can be operated from a simple user-level API, via a development API, or via EPICS. The user interface is consistent with other VadaTech data acquisition products.
The high sample rate, 16-bit digitisation and MTCA.4 form factor make this sub-system ideal for research and industrial applications. The dual channel DAC, driven from the on-board Kintex FPGA, can be used to implement low-latency feedback for HWIL (hardware in the loop) test applications.
An RS-232 port is also available from the FPGA if the customer desires to implement a soft-processorin the FPGA and utilize a serial console, and quad SFP+ ports are available on the front panel (these require user firmware development).
The MRT523 is capable of accepting user-designed mezzanine modules for sensor inputdirect to the chassis. This allows users to match the analog front end to specific projectrequirements. Contact VadaTech sales for details.
