    FMC enhancements for growing high-speed data needs

    FMC enhancements for growing high-speed data needs

    Dylan Lang (Samtec)
    Field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology has proven to be invaluable to embedded designers for many years. Often acting as an all-in-one solution, FPGAs negate the need for ASIC [application-specific integrated circuit] technology and reduce the cost of custom IP algorithms in silicon. FPGAs ...

    White Paper: Critical Techniques for High-Speed A/D Converters in Real-Time Systems

    Rodger Hosking (Pentek, Inc.)
    An A/D (Analog-to-Digital) converter, frequently abbreviated as ADC, accepts an analog voltage at the input and produces a digital representation of that voltage at the output that's called a "sample". The two primary characteristics of A/Ds are the rate of conversion or sampling rate, expressed in ... [read more]
