Kane Introduces Lyrtech VHS-ADC-V4 High Speed Multi-Channel I/O Card

1/20/2006 - Kane Computing are now selling the new Lyrtech VHS-ADC-V4, the latest in their VHS range of high speed Virtex-4 based multi-channel input/output cards. This higher speed member of its multi-channel cPCI data acquisition line of products is specifically targeted at advanced multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) technologies.

The VHS-ADC-V4 is claimed to be the only solution world-wide that can acquire 16 RF channels and process them to IF and baseband levels.

The VHS-ADC-V4 can be used with other Lyrtech DSP/FPGA boards such as the SignalMaster Quad.

Equipped with 8 to 16 channels capable of a maximum sampling rate of 105 MHz, a customizable range of powerful Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGA for high-speed processing, and model-based design capabilities, the VHS-ADC-V4 allows its users to create state-of-the art embedded solutions for applications such as smart antenna, beam forming, wireless router, software-defined radio, geolocation, space-time processing, as well as phased-array radar, and other multi-channel, high-speed systems.

"Combined with its board software package, the VHS-ADC-V4 offers ease of interfacing and advanced design flow capabilities. Fully integrated with The MathWorks environment MATLAB® and the Xilinx System GeneratorTM for DSP, the solution allows users to develop a functional prototype of their applications quickly and to optimize code and final hardware through efficient paths," states Louis Bélanger, Lyrtech Executive Vice President and Product Development Manager.

"The push towards higher bandwidths for mobile users, the development of higher-speed wireless LAN (802.11n), and the implementation of the next generation of wireless systems are driving the use of smart antenna/MIMO systems. We developed the VHS-ADC-V4 in response to the need for an advanced platform that is specifically adapted to facilitate smart antenna development. There is a significant market for this product on a stand-alone basis, or combined with our SignalMaster Quad cPCI platforms for a complete high-performance DSP solution," added Migüel Caron, Lyrtech President and Chief Executive Officer.
