Based on the Xilinx Virtex4 range, the SMT348 from Sundance features 16MB of fast QDRII memory; ensuring ample capacity to develop today’s demanding applications. With 8MB of ZBTRAM, the lower cost SMT368 is also more than capable of reducing prototype development times.
Besides raw speed, both the SMT348 and SMT368 are scalable and future-proof. They include SHB interfaces and the SLB (Sundance LVDS Bus) interface. These provide quick and easy connection to Sundance’s rapid ADC and DAC modules, such as the SMT390 (capable of 210MSPS) and the SMT391 (capable of 1GSPS), for data acquisition or software radio systems. Also, they are both in the Sundance TIM-compatible form-factor. This ensures they integrate easily with a large range of other DSP and FPGA modules.

What this means is a very quick platform for developers of Multi-carrier/Multi-standard cellular systems, High Direct-IF infrastructures and RF Test Equipment applications. Also SDR development teams, scientists, satellite, Radar, WiMAX, 3G and other RF system developers, researchers, aerospace engineers and Matlab modellers, will all appreciate the capability and return on investment promised by such a rapid prototyping tool.

DSP system analyst with Sundance, Sebastien Maury, explained, “The introduction of the SMT348 and SMT368 means Sundance can offer rapid prototype development teams more than 250 possible combinations of COTS DSP, FPGA and TIM boards to meet their constantly changing needs.”

Both boards are one hundred percent compliant with the RoHS directive.
