This programmable, USB2.0-connected system is made for fast data acquisition and FPGA processing. It has two channels of 210Msample/s 12-bit A/D conversion, two channels of 160Msample/s 16-bit D/A conversion and eight user-programmable digital I/Os with a 1.5M gate Xilinx Virtex-II FPGA, with an optional 3M gate FPGA available. They come with a choice of USB-connected FPGA/DSP hardware, USB cable, I/O cables for peripherals, power supply unit and a CD containing documentation, software tools and examples.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
