Understanding the secrets of the Universe with the help of Zipcores' FMC cards...
A new project at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC, "QUIJOTE")
, intended to study Deep Space Cosmic Background Radiation, is making use of our FMC breakout card.
Together with a Xilinx® Zynq-7000 base board (ZEDboard), our FMC Card
is being used for the interfacing and control of a 256 channel x 24-bit data acquisition system. The system uses an array of small microwave antennas and a bank of high-res 24-bit AD7768 ADCs from Analog Devices.
Engineer, Sergio Gonzalez, adds: "The success of our work with IAC continues with the ZIP-FMC-BRK card and it's proving to be a very useful prototyping platform during tests. The IAC research project will study very deep space (20-100 GHz) residual radiation and its anisotropy."
