Clock Distribution Module - UltraScale+ MPSoC

The WILDSTAR™ Clock Distribution Module from Annapolis Micro Systems allows for synchronization of up to 12 backplanes worth of ADC/DAC WFMC+.

It provides the capability to synchronize up to 960 ADC/DAC channels, with 12 differential clock outputs, 12 single-ended trigger outputs, and optional 12 single-ended reference clock outputs. 

The WP9CC0 clock module is powered by a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC EV Motherboard Controller and is designed for a standard 19″ rack with support for both air- or conduction-cooled environments.
