NUREMBURG, Germany & NORWOOD, Mass.--(Business Wire)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI: NASDAQ) unveiled the newest addition to its line of
FPGA development platform-compatible FPGA mezzanine cards (FMC) incorporating
JEDEC JESD204B SerDes (serializer/de-serializer) technology today. Digital and
analog designers can use the AD9250-FMC-250EBZ kit to simplify and rapidly
prototype high-speed JESD204B A/D converter-to-FPGA platforms.

About the AD9250-FMC-250EBZ JESD204B FPGA Mezzanine Card Kit

The AD9250-FMC-250EBZ features two AD9250 dual 14-bit high-speed JESD204B data
converters providing four 14-bit A/D converter channels at 250 MSPS in an
FMC-compliant form factor. The two on-board AD9250 A/D converters support
Subclass 0 and 1 deterministic latency and provide a SYNCREF signal for precise
synchronization of all four channels providing the connectivity and
functionality to quickly combine with Xilinx`s Kintex-6/7 and Virtex-6/7 FPGA
platforms in a variety of compute-intensive FPGA-based applications. 

The AD9250-FMC-250EBZ FMC kit was designed with a multistage, differential
pipelined architecture and integrated output error correction logic. The FMC may
be clocked by either an internal clock source or externally. It has an external
trigger input for customized sampling control, a high-pin-count connector, front
panel I/O and can be used in a conduction-cooled environment. The FMC allows
flexible control on sampling frequency, analog input gain, and over-range
detection through serial communication buses. It is equipped with power supply
and temperature monitoring and offers several power-down modes to switch off
unused functions or protect the card from overheating.
