ADC & DAC with Gen 3 Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC

The high density WILD FMC+ GM61 ADC & DAC from Annapolis features Gen 3 Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ RF System-on-Chip (RFSoC) technology. It provides 2 ADC channels and 8 DAC channels.

The GM61 is ideal for use with Annapolis’ WILDSTAR PCIe and OpenVPX Baseboards. Designed for standalone use, the GM61 is perfect for applications limited by Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C). This WILD FMC+ card operates within a tight envelope; it is slimmer than a 3U OpenVPX board, with about 45% less depth.

The versatile GM61 is ideal for advanced High Performance Computing (HPC), Radar, and Electronic Warfare (EW) applications, including DRFM, beamforming, sensor processing, wireless communication, and radar signal processing.



  • Integrates Gen 3 Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ RFSoC FPGA: ZU27DR, ZU28DR, or ZU47DR
  • Ultra-low latency from ADC SMA input to DAC SMA output
  • High-density and high ADC/DAC channel count.
    • Capability for two (3U) or four (6U) ADC channels and eight (3U) or sixteen (6U) DAC channels in one OpenVPX slot. (Higher channel counts also available.)
  • Compatible with any WILDSTAR mainboard with a WFMC+ slot
  • Firmware and Software for data transmit interface and clock trigger synchronization provided in CoreFire Next and VHDL source

The GM61’s integrated Xilinx RFSoC combines FPGA processing and A/D and D/A converters in a single chip, giving the board remarkable density and performance:
  • 2-Channel 4.0-5.0GSps 12/14b ADC
  • 8-Channel 6.4-10.0GSps 14b DAC
Also available:
  • 8 ADC & 2 DAC Channels – WWGM62
  • 4 ADC & 4 DAC Channels – WWGM63

The GM61 provides high fidelity and high speed analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion along with a rugged design.

For large deployments requiring significant processing capability, synchronize multiple RFSoC cards.

The GM61 is shipped with a custom heatsink which enables proper cooling. An on-board temperature monitor is also supplied which allows for real-time monitoring of the RFSoC’s internal die temperature.

The Board Support Interface is available in VHDL or CoreFire Next Application Design Suite.
