FMCDAQ2 Input conditioning and signal processing

Hi All,

We have ordered the "Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA DSP Development Kit with JESD204B High-Speed Analog" which contains the FMCDAQ2 board.

The signal we want to process has a bandwith of 200 MHz and is located around 700 MHz.

The signal strength can vary between -10 to -60 dbm.

1. Do we need to place an Input Conditioning board (AGC) in front of the FMCDAQ2?

2. Which DDC configurations/ Sampling Rate would you recommend to process the signal. (So the FPGA could process the high bandwidt data)


Thanks in advance.
