The DAC-Q30 FMC+ module from DEG is a high sample rate, 16 bit quad channel DAC module. The Analog Devices AD9174 DAC device operates at 3.0 Gsps natively and up to 12.0 Gsps in interpolation mode. A VITA 57.4-compliant FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC+) interface, the DAC-Q30 offers industry wide platform compatibility with the PCIe/VME/VXS/VPX carrier board of your choice. The DAC-Q30 and associated HDL firmware are compatible with AMD FPGAs.


The DAC-Q30 incorporates the JESD204B SERDES Interface standard. The DAC-Q30 utilizes sixteen JESD204B lanes from the carrier board FPGA. Sustained data transfer rates of up to 15.5 Gbytes/sec. are supported.


  • Quad Channel 3.0 Gsps 16-bit DAC : 12 GHz in Interpolation Mode
  • JESD204B SERDES Interface: x 16 Lanes DAC @ 15.5 Gbs per Lane
  • Built-in Clock Jitter Cleaner
  • Multiple Configurable Data Channel Interpolation Options 

Flexible & Cost-Effective

By coupling this core architecture with the compact and flexible VITA 57.4 form factor, DEG has enabled customers to rapidly and cost-effectively build compact systems with significant SWaP-C benefits. By packing four high-performance DAC channels on a single FMC+ module, DEG is enabling a new generation of radar, jammer and high-performance communication applications.
