The Programmable FPGA Card

What is the Programmable FPGA Card?

Concurrent Real-Time’s family of programmable FPGA PCIe cards feature a powerful field programmable gate array that supports both digital and analog I/O. The cards can control up to 96 digital I/O signals along with 16 analog inputs and 16 analog outputs. Each card’s I/O functionality is fully customizable by the user by means of the FPGA Workbench tools. The cards feature isolated I/O power, high-speed digital isolators and multi-board synchronization. Optional NIST traceable calibration is available for the analog section. The cards are available with 362K or 504K logic elements.
