With the LXD30K0 Logic-X provides a unique analogue interface product that is based on the 12-bits low latency wide bandwidth ADC (EV12AS350A) and DAC (EV12DS460) from Teledyne E2V. Multi-card synchronization is supported thanks to a flexible clock tree and external synchronization trigger input.
With an analogue input stage that has a very wide input bandwidth from 0.5 MHz up to 4.8 GHz and the low latency 5.4 Gsps ADC from E2V (EV12AS350A) the LXD30K0 delivers unmatched performance with regards to SFDR, close in phase noise and latency (7.2 ns) on its analogue input channel. Sampling at 5.4 Gsps offers an instantaneous bandwidth of 2.7 GHz
Surpassing the analogue input, the analogue output offers an even lower latency (1.2 ns) using the EV12DS460 DAC device from E2V. The output bandwidth ranges from 0.5 MHz to 6 GHz and the instantaneous output bandwidth is 1.35 GHz
Both the ADC and DAC offer 12-bits resolution further contributing to achieving best in class signal to noise ratios.
It is possible to achieve a very low latency from the RF input to the RF output because of the LVDS connectivity to the host carrier. This can be less than 18 ns, depending on the carrier that is used
The onboard low noise clock generator ensures easy integration into small single-channel systems as well as standalone operation. For larger systems it is possible to directly provide the sample clock to the front panel SSMC connector or to synchronize the local clock generator to an external reference clock
