Regarding FPGA for high speed data capture (>1280 MSPS)


I am looking for an FPGA board that can capture data stream coming at 1280 MSPS from my ADC.

The data is coming as LVDS output on a SMA cable and I would like to have an FPGA board that has SMA interface at this rate.

I also have a clock to capture/sync this data stream at 1280 MHz. So ideally I would like to have a clock port as well to capture my data.

However, CDR based clock recovery is also viable option in absence of clock.

Can you please recommend FPGA boards that suit my specs?

Thanks and regards

    Hi VB,

    We have several FPGA boards that capture data from our ADCs. The FPGAs are custom configured for a specific ADC. None of the FPGA boards that I know of have an SMA interface.

    I suggest you check with one of the FPGA vendors to see what kind of boards they offer.

    Thank you.
