You are here: Home - OEM - IDAB-125


The IDAB OEM board is designed to implement RF signal acquisition in rough industrial environments. The board offers complex DSP capabilities due to the Altera Cyclone IV FPGA equipped. A quad-channel high speed ADC from Linear Technologies is connected to the FPGA. The board offers a serial and 5V power out connection to control an optional RF frontend or amplifiers accordingly. A Gigabit connections allows real-time signal streaming. The Freescale Kinetis MK60 microcontroller can for example be used for SD-card mass-storage access and controller purposes. The board comes with a set of HDL and C code based example designs to access all peripherals for a quick start up.
